The Counselling and Therapeutic Practice 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. 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 the USW Therapy Centre to provide you with the supervised practice hours required. Our Counselling and Therapeutic Practice degree is based at our Treforest Campus. USW Treforest is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the warm and friendly welcome and community atmosphere, as well as the convenience of living and studying in the same place. From listed buildings to new, modern structures, Treforest reflects the University’s history and its ambitions. Here you will find everything you need in one place - halls of residence, the library and sport centre, cafes and bars to eat and drink, and friends to spend time with.
