Psychology with Counselling and Psychotherapy - Manchester Metropolitan University

A 60-year-old woman struggling to deal with the sudden death of her mother. A teenager suffering from depression. A 26-year-old man who experienced domestic violence as a child. Psychology is the science of the human mind and behaviour. How we think, behave and interact with the world around us. Emotional trauma can be devastating. It can affect every aspect of our lives, from our relationships with our families to our ability to cope at work. And that’s where a counsellor or psychotherapist can help. On this three-year course, some of the topics you might study include how drugs affect our minds and behaviour, categories of illness and labels (such as anxiety or depression), and the ethics of working therapeutically in mental health. You’ll also explore topics from the influence of family, gender and culture on our development to memory recall and language, as well as how to analyse statistics in our computer labs. Some of the skills you’ll normally learn are acceptance, empathic listening, questioning techniques, resilience, and online counselling, as well as how to observe a patient, how to use digital media to record, and how to give appropriate feedback. You’ll mostly learn through role play activities in pairs and small groups. **Features and benefits** - **Accredited course**- Our course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). - **Specialised study**- You’ll explore the therapeutic aspects of psychology, helping to prepare you to begin a career in counselling or clinical psychology. - **Outstanding facilities**- You’ll have access to our specialist facilities for psychology demonstration and practice, which includes an fNIRS imaging research device, 12 experimental testing laboratories and six psychology laboratories. - **Teaching expertise**- Our teaching staff includes practicing researchers, counsellors, and forensic and community psychologists. - **Study abroad-** You’ll have the option to choose our four year Study Abroad route.
