Psychology with Counselling

Everyone has times in their life when they may suffer from personal difficulties. Whether they’ve lost someone close, had an unpleasant experience or even come through illness, they may need to reach out for help and support. This course combines the theory of psychology with practical counselling approaches, helping you build the skills required to help people in need. On the course we’ll take a research focus, looking at the theory and practice of counselling and psychology, all with an aim to help your personal development during the three years. Throughout the course you’ll be guided by specialists in subject areas like biopsychology, developmental psychology, personality and individual differences, and counselling psychology. The course aims to give you a unique and invaluable insight into human behaviour. You should be able to use the skills that you’ve developed in a wide range of situations, careers or further study. We’ll look at the science of mind and behaviour, which is the Psychology side of the course, and also at the different types of counselling approaches. Cognitive behavioural therapy, person-centred, psychodynamic therapy and others – you’ll have the opportunity to explore a wide range of techniques. You’ll also look at the importance of health and wellbeing in day-to-day life, and how to support other people in their everyday lives. The facilities are designed to give you as much practical experience as possible. Our counselling labs are fitted with cameras and microphones, so you’ll be able to practise your skills by acting out scenarios, followed by detailed feedback on how you’re doing. If you graduate with a Lower Second Class Honours or higher, you’ll be able to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS). Previous graduates have gone on to work in a wide range of different sectors, including education, healthcare, research, marketing and human resources.*
