You will be able to undertake a placement during Year 2 to help prepare you for the workplace. You will also have the chance to experience some of the ways in which counselling and psychotherapy are delivered abroad (i.e. an opportunity for international study). 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.
