Summary

This distinctive and professional programme, which is suitable for those with or without a background in counselling, draws upon psychology, neuro-psychotherapy, neuroscience and biosciences to reflect the scientific content required in psychotherapy training. The course focuses on contemporary creative approaches to psychotherapy and counselling and has a multi-modal and integrative approach that includes the sequential use of drawing, painting, guided imagery, movement, drama, writing, poetry and sculpture to immerse you in the therapeutic process. This will help you facilitate the exploration of emotions, experiences and challenges to emotional wellbeing.

A key feature of the programme is the inclusion of placements and experiences working with children, young people and adults, ensuring you gain the expertise required to work with contemporary creative approaches across the lifespan. You will graduate equipped with the skills needed to work at emotional depth with people experiencing psychological distress and find yourself well placed to pursue individual professional accreditation with one of the national awarding bodies.
