Counselling is the skilled and principled use of a collaborative relationship using a variety of counselling models and interventions. Counselling is a healing and organic process that occurs when a counsellor and client come together to bring about change and to develop a therapeutic relationship. The counselling relationship can be a place for clients to recognise how they are feeling and explore any past, present and possibly future issues/life events that they may have.
This course will provide students with all the necessary knowledge and skills required to work as an ethical and professional counselling practitioner. This is an integrative counselling course which means students will learn a variety of counselling models and how to integrate these together creating a therapist that can tailor support to the client's needs.
If you are interested in a career in counselling, then this degree provides an excellent route into the profession. This course has been specifically designed to enable students in becoming a qualified counsellor; we support your journey into counselling from enrolment, registering you as a student member of the BACP in the second year of the degree. In addition, we undertake all the DBS checks for you and cover the costs of your student membership and personal indemnity insurance.
This BACP student membership provides further resources, guidance and encouragement to help you progress, in addition to the expert support you receive from our qualified tutors. On successful completion of this course, student members can upgrade to Individual Members and apply for individual BACP membership and accreditation.
