Counselling

This programme aims to foster the development of critically reflective practitioners who are able to work in a variety of settings with a broad range of people. It is founded in dialogue between the person-centred approach and psychodynamic perspectives in counselling. The Master of Counselling is validated professionally by Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland (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. A distinctive feature of this degree is its focus on the student's individual counselling practice with clients, which normally begins in year two.
