Counselling Psychology is embedded in the discipline of psychology and concerns itself with applied areas of psychological work, in the overlapping areas of psychotherapy, clinical psychology, counselling and psychiatry.

The critical position here at the University of East London embodies the idea that individual psychological processes need to be considered within historical and current social, political and cultural contexts.

You will study human development across the lifespan with a focus on issues of diversity, difference and community, and the impact of inequality, discrimination and social justice.

As well as working with adults, you will have substantial opportunities to gain experience of working with children and families, and to work with more complex cases as your competence and experience grows.

The clinical focus of the training in years one and two is cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), including second and third-wave CBT. You will consider psychodynamic and integrative approaches.

You will receive research training in year one and register your chosen project area for your thesis at the beginning of year two.
