|Telephone||020 8331 9000|
Counsellors are essential to the mental wellbeing of a wide range of people in our society.
We provide excellent training and education for those who seek a formal counselling qualification. Our master's programme is matched to BACP professional body requirements and competencies. The programme's core model is based upon Clarkson's (2003) integrative model of the therapeutic relationship.
Our programme is suitable for those who are seeking to make a career change but have some experience (voluntary or otherwise) in a helping capacity. This could be in human resources, law, social services, nursing or education.
Alternatively, our degree is ideal if you are seeking to enhance your current professional practice with insight into the theory and practice of counselling and psychotherapy, as well as the management of high intensity distress.
Our flexible entry system may also appeal if you have previous postgraduate counsellor training and are seeking a Master's level qualification accredited by the BACP.

Applicants should have an honours degree at 2:1 or above PLUS some knowledge of counselling skills and experience of working with people in a helping capacity.

Applicants seeking direct entry are required to present a portfolio demonstrating successful equivalent postgraduate certificate level training.
