Introduction to the course

This programme is aimed primarily at those who have completed the first two years of the Foundation Degree at the College and wish to complete a third year that will enable them to achieve a BA (Honours) Counselling.

Written work will be undertaken as part of the APL process.

This is a full time course with formal attendance on the taught aspects of

the programme on one day per week (Monday) over one year and aims to

provide students with an in-depth understanding of counselling work in a

way that will enable students to:

  • To critically analyse a wider range of Counselling orientations and to develop their own personal integration of these within their practice.

  • To assist students in deepening their knowledge of counselling theory and their ability to put this into practice.

  • To make links between learned theory and practice
