About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2020

This programme is intended for people who have completed an introductory counselling course and are already using counselling skills in their professional or voluntary work; particularly in a helping, caring, healthcare, social care or
educational capacity.

You will develop your counselling skills within a person-centred framework. The Personal Development module will provide a structure for developing awareness of yourself and how you relate to others. The Counselling Contexts module will develop your analytical and evaluative skills. You will work in a supportive and stimulating group with tutors who subscribe to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

You will be introduced to, and encouraged to practise and develop, a range of counselling skills and be required to consider various psychological and sociological explanations of what it means to be a person in a social world and to begin to consider how they might apply to counselling practice.

The Professional Development module requires you to consider the role of professional support, your current professional competence and future professional development, by the application of course-based learning to your current professional or voluntary setting and prepare for further professional development including counselling training.

You will also focus on the sources and values of counselling ethics and on the principles which inform the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy of the BACP. This encourages ethical mindfulness through exploring the tensions and fit between personal values, the BACP Ethical Framework and student agency or organisational practice guidelines.

Assessment is through coursework, and we use a self, peer and tutor assessment process.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
