This course is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), so you can be sure it’s relevant and recognised within the psychotherapeutic and health care profession. The course will help you to further your career and become a BACP accredited and autonomous counselling practitioner.
The MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy provides an innovative approach to psychotherapeutic practice that enables you to learn about three different psychotherapeutic approaches; person-centred, attachment theory, and cognitive behaviour psychotherapy. A trans-theoretical model is used to provide a framework to integrate these theories to acknowledge the complexities of human problems in a meaningful way.
You’ll be encouraged to develop your understanding of the theoretical, social, cultural and ideological contexts in which your clients perceive, confront and manage problems.


You´ll need an undergraduate degree
You´ll also need to be committed to therapeutic counselling and psychotherapy as a career and will normally be working as a counsellor or psychotherapist in some capacity
For students whose first language is not English, you´ll need to sit the IELTS test and score within band seven for both written and speaking English or Pearson equivalent
A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is required at the point of accepting a place at the University.
