Our Psychology and Counselling degree will provide you with an excellent grounding in academic psychology and will introduce you to the world of therapeutic practice. The course is perfect for those who are interested in working with people experiencing difficult circumstances and is an ideal basis for further study to qualify as a counsellor. Completing this degree means you can apply directly to Masters or postgraduate counselling courses that lead to British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registration. In doing so, you will shorten your route to a full professional status by at least a year. However, if you decide not to pursue the further training necessary to become a professional counsellor or psychotherapist, you will still develop key academic competences, such as self-understanding, communication and relationship skills that are vital to employment success.
