The Graduate Certificate in Counselling Psychology gives you the opportunity to learn about the interpersonal and therapeutic skills which are the foundation of the counselling process.
It also provides a range of theoretical frameworks, linking psychological theory and counselling technique, and acts as a template for model-based counselling practice.
The course is designed for psychology graduates, healthcare professionals, teachers, social workers, managers and others who wish to develop their interpersonal and counselling skills and improve the application of these within their professional practice.
It is not a professional training programme and is not intended to train you to be an independent counselling practitioner.It is, however, an excellent foundation if you want to extend your knowledge and experience of counselling prior to undertaking more advanced training in counselling psychology or a related discipline.
