Study type Taught


The MSc Advanced Psychotherapy and Counselling Studies offers psychotherapists and counsellors the opportunity to advance their knowledge, understanding, and skill in the theory, research, and practice of psychotherapy and counselling by engaging with the "cutting edge" of the discipline. Students engage with advanced philosophical, psychological, and counselling theory underpinning practice, and they engage with contemporary research to support evidence-based practice. They also engage with advanced skills practice relating to relational depth and working with difference and diversity such as through engaging with gender, race, and sexual orientation considerations. As professional development, the programme aims to support students in ‘upskilling’ and advancing their knowledge, understanding, intellectual skills, and practical skills, and therefore improve the quality of their practice. Further, the consistent research focus throughout the programme will support students in preparing for postgraduate research opportunities such as a PhD.
