The programme enables participating students to deepen their understanding of Counselling theory and practice. The rationale being that effective practice is based upon an awareness of the complex and contested nature of practical counselling issues rather than through uncritical acceptance of prescription. The programme is designed to enable individual participants who have no first degree to gain bachelors of honours in counselling studies. Counselling as a discipline is broad and continues to grow in reputation and in importance to diverse range of groups within counselling environment: education administration, community development, health and social care, early year’s practitioners, human resources and the voluntary sector. For its scope, the programme draws on educational aspects of Psychology, Sociology and Philosophy to give students the appreciation of counselling as a field of study.
