This Counselling degree offers the learning and training you need to become a professional integrative counsellor. You’ll gain the knowledge, skills and experience to provide counselling across all age ranges, from children and young people to adults. You will study a range of traditional ‘talking therapies’, as well as creative and contemporary approaches such as online counselling. There is a key focus on employability. Work placements are an important part of this Counselling degree and will fully prepare you for the start of your career. You’ll have placements in every year of the course, including 150 hours of supervised professional practice. This meets placement criteria for individual accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). The University of South Wales has strong links with a wide range of local counselling agencies, employers and counselling services such as South Wales Counselling and Psychotherapy to provide you with the supervised practice hours required.
