Overview

This Counselling Psychology course is open to people who are interested in developing a solid foundation in counselling to prepare them for higher learning and/or professional practice. It is one year part-time course delivered on the basis of either, one-day-per week or, four two-week blocks together with one-day-per-month meetings.

The course is designed to respond to the needs of those working therapeutically with clients in schools, primary health care, pastoral care, social work and related disciplines providing psychosocial services.

Participants are assessed during the course by the submission of 4 written assignments and a case study. The practical skills are assessed at the end of the course by submission of a video recording of a counselling session together with a written commentary describing how the theories of counselling are employed. There are also a number of non examinable components that participants are expected to satisfy.

  • Counselling in context
  • Process and practice of counselling

Course content

Learning is participatory and experiential, encouraging participants to reflect on their own values, assumptions, beliefs and prejudices about human nature and the process of change.

Psychological theories of counselling are presented through a combination of lectures, group discussions, case studies, individual and group presentations.

Practical training is based upon counselling skills introduced through role-plays and monitored through video and audio recordings. Tutorials are an integral part of the course when participants have the opportunity of discussing their personal development and their academic work with tutors.
