This programme is focussed on practice for aspiring counsellors. It prepares students for the challenges of working in this vital and frequently fluid area within both the public and private sector, equipping all students with the knowledge, skills, understanding and ethical instincts to work as informed, confident and responsible professionals. The programme will offer students sound knowledge and skills which they can apply to practice during the practical element, where students complete 100 placement hours as a 1-1 counsellor. A further requirement is that the student will participate in ten hours of personal therapy and 1.5 hours supervision per 8 client hours. .
Dissertation Practice Placement Personal Development & Culture Psychology within Counselling
Throughout the teaching an emphasis will be made on the context and application of theory to practice, the development of an ethical, anti-oppressive and value-based approach, to inform practice with clients. The nature of the profession further relies upon the practitioner’s ability to utilise reflexive and reflective practice. This will be embedded into specific personal development essays, experiential tasks and into skills practice. The personal development assessment will further demonstrate a critical awareness of self, regarding culture and diversity. Assessments such as case studies, reports and a dissertation will further demonstrate the ability to critically analyse contemporary counselling research.
