The programme fosters the development of critically reflective practitioners who are able to work in a variety of settings with a broad range of people. The programme is founded in dialogue between the person-centred approach and psychodynamic perspectives in counselling; the programme is validated professionally by COSCA at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma levels; it is a flexible student-centred training process with a strong emphasis on practice, including a counselling placement.
