BA (Hons) Counselling South Essex College of Further and Higher Education

Undergraduate

Awarded by: University of East Anglia

The BA (Hons) Counselling offers students a strong theoretical and practical base from which to begin their professional counselling practice, whilst working towards individual accreditation with the BACP. The theoretical orientation is humanistic, though other approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Transactional Analysis are also examined. Students are encouraged to respect the frame and ethos of their core training approach, whilst also developing their own individual style and philosophy of counselling. The programme is hence intended for those seeking a career in counselling, either in an environment which utilizes counselling, or one which encompasses the emotional and psychological well-being of others.
