Topics of study on the Diploma, which constitutes the BACP-accredited training course, include: theory and practice of counselling and psychotherapy; models for integration; theoretical frameworks (for example, person-centred, cognitive-behavioural, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and gestalt); and professional and clinical studies – including the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
You will also engage in practical skills training, personal development and clinical supervision. You will also study social context/multiculturalism and common client presenting problems, including mental health issues.
If you choose to stay on for a third year to take your MA, your work will be based on clinical practice and an independent research project or dissertation.
