Do you want to discover how people can be empowered to live a happier, healthier lifestyle that enables resilience against the stresses of daily living? You'll explore the relationship between theoretical psychology and counselling, considering the practice of counselling psychology in the wider social, political, economic and international context. We'll teach you about the wider issues affecting the counsellor and the client, focusing on their interpersonal relationship and the personal development needs of both. You'll develop an understanding of what causes psychological distress, but you'll also explore positive aspects of human behaviour, uncovering what underpins optimal human functioning. Our lecturers have real-world experience of counselling and delivering behaviour change initiatives. We'll give you plenty of opportunities to get hands-on professional experience through work placements and volunteering opportunities. You'll complete two placements which will help you to develop a deeper understanding of vulnerable people and disadvantaged groups. You can even complete your placement abroad, or take advantage of one of our Study Abroad opportunities. In your third year, you'll get the freedom to tailor your course to your interests, helping you to carve the path towards your future career. Placement opportunities ​We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You'll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months' professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. You'll complete a five-week professional work placement in your first year and a six-week professional work placement in your second year. Recent placements have included working with people in a supportive capacity in the health and care professions, supporting children with Leeds Children's Services and shadowing psychologists at NHS Leeds. Our placement partners include Leeds Mind, Leeds Women's Counselling and Therapy Service, the Alzheimer's Society, Oxfam and The Samaritans. Graduate opportunities You'll gain an excellent grounding in counselling and related health and social care professions, including social work, care work, social services and primary and secondary teaching. If you want to become a Chartered Psychologist, a counselling psychologist or work in any other professional area of psychology, this course will prepare you for postgraduate study.
