University of Brighton
Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling
The philosophy of the course is based upon a recognition that there is no single presiding theory or model of counselling which commands widespread agreement and support; nevertheless the practice of counselling cannot be separated from underlying values, theoretical assumptions and hypotheses concerning the nature of human experience and change; drawing upon existentialism and phenomenology and developed in reaction to the dominance of behaviourism and psychoanalysis, the humanistic approach gives primacy to the individual's capacity for self determination; therapeutic activity is directed towards creating a context which promotes client autonomy.
