Designed to provide an intensive foundation in counselling for those who meet elements of counselling in their day-to-day work and who wish to enter this field professionally.

This programme is designed to provide an intensive foundation in counselling for those who meet elements of counselling in their day-to-day work and who wish to enter this field professionally, but lack sufficient experience and qualification to study at postgraduate diploma level.

It is particularly suitable for those anticipating an application to the Colleges MA in Counselling.

Admission is by means of an interview after the receipt of a completed application form.

The programme is taught by means of theoretical lectures, seminars, experiential workshops and group tutorials.

Youll study key theoretical concepts that inform the practice of humanistic and psychodynamic counselling and will identify the specific responsibilities and processes of the counselling alliance.

Please note: the programme is at post-experience rather than postgraduate level.

The programme covers

* Humanistic approaches to counselling, with special emphasis on the philosophy and influence of Carl Rogers
* Psychodynamic principles of counselling, with reference to growth and development, unconscious processes and intra-psychic conflicts
* The ethics of counselling: boundaries and responsibility
* Applications: institutional settings and specific counselling foci
* Care for the counsellor: supervision and meeting your own needs
