Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies

UCLan is one of only a few educational institutions where three different approaches to counselling and psychotherapy can be studied. These are psychoanalytical, humanistic and cognitive behavioural. This course gives a solid grounding in the understanding of counselling and psychotherapy and offers transferable skills, particularly relevant when working closely with other people in a helping profession such as nursing, social work and probation, as well as in human resources, management or mediation positions. You’ll undertake a placement during Year 2 to help prepare you for the workplace and, although not a practitioner course, this degree will prepare you for work in the field of counselling. Our graduates can work in a variety of fields. Some will wish to continue on to train as a counsellor and psychotherapist by undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma/MA in Integrative Psychotherapy (BACP Accredited); some wish to pursue work in the field of Mental Health by working as Psychological Well-being Practitioners (PWP’s); some pursue work by training as Registered Nurses in Mental Health, General Adult or Child branches; others pursue work by training to be Social Workers (the MA in Social Work); whilst others pursue a range of employment opportunities working with people in other ways.
