Explore Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling students in a seminar

If you have a desire to help people cope with challenging circumstances that affect their emotional and physical wellbeing, for example, anxiety, depression, self-harm, bereavement and a range of other issues, then one of our counselling and psychotherapy courses could be for you.

We offer opportunities at both undergraduate and postgraduate level to develop your personal and professional potential supported by a very experienced and friendly team of qualified counsellors and psychotherapists – all of whom are currently in contemporary practice and researching in real world settings.

As counsellors and psychotherapist we ‘walk the talk’ so you can expect to enter a friendly and supportive environment – working with professionals who will be genuine, and who will empathise with you and respect you.
