The Psychotherapy MSc allows graduates of our postgraduate diplomas in Therapeutic Counselling to further their professional and academic training. It involves two further years of study in which you build on your chosen theoretical base and develop ways of working with complex presentations of human distress. You also develop skills in research design and implementation specific to the profession of psychotherapy. The course has been accredited by the Universities Training College (UTC) of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Graduates are qualified to officially register as a psychotherapist. Although the MSc is a continuation of our postgraduate diplomas, applications are welcomed from those who have been awarded an equivalent qualification in counselling from other universities.
