Integrative Counselling (Top up)

Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling (Top Up), is a carefully designed undergraduate degree programme, benchmarked against national standards, which will provide students with the professional knowledge and skills to work professionally as a Counsellor, should they choose to pursue this after graduation. This programme is open to applicants from a Christian and non-Christian background. It is a professional course in a Christian setting, that offers both a distinctly Christian element (optional) and a general spiritual / transpersonal element woven through the course. Students are encouraged to reflect on how their personal worldviews around spirituality and faith (Christian or otherwise) connect with the practice of counselling. This provides a unique opportunity to study a professionally recognised secular course in an environment that recognises the value of faith and spirituality. Mode of Study The BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling (Top Up), will be taught at our London campus on a Thursday and Friday during term time. It consists of two twelve week semesters with the college day starting around 8.30am and finishing at 4.30pm The majority of the teaching will be face-to-face learning with minor blended learning to practise online counselling. Programme Structure Each year consists of 120 credits comprising theory, skills, and professional practice / ethics. This requires the development of high levels of self-awareness around understanding of self, personal history, and patterns of relating. Additionally, students will be encouraged to reflect on their approach to working with difference and diversity including the interaction with mental health, and how culture is experienced and understood within the counselling relationship.
