Counselling Psychology Studies

This course is founded on a person-centred view of personhood and person-centred ways of being. A wide variety of teaching and learning strategies are used including lectures, large group work, community meetings, tutorials and small group work. Within this framework students are introduced to a range of practices which are related to relevant philosophical traditions including existentialism, phenomenology and poststructuralism. Throughout the course, students are supported to establish a sense of coherence in their own position.

Entry requirements

In some cases, where students have significant relevant experience, this requirement may be waived.
