BA (Hons) Counselling Studies (Top Up)
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 course is designed for practitioners who want to expand their practice by a process of assimilative integration. This is about gradually extending your core modality by adding in elements, with a solid theoretical underpinning, ensuring the overall approach remains coherent. The programme is designed to enable individual participants who have no first degree to gain bachelors of honours in counselling studies. NESCOT is approved by The Open University as an appropriate organisation to offer higher education programmes leading to Open University validated awards.
FD Psychodynamic Counselling
The Foundation Degree programme aims to provide a sound theoretical framework and practical training in psychodynamic counselling. It is intended for those who have already undertaken Level 2 and Level 3 training in counselling and wish to continue to become fully qualified as counsellors either in employment or in private practice. The Foundation Degree is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills base required for life-long learning in a continually expanding area. This course is taught face to face at Nescot. Nescot is approved by The Open University as an appropriate organisation to offer higher education programmes leading to Open University validated awards.
A psychodynamic counsellor will strive to help clients recognise the possible source of some of their issues such as unhelpful relationships patterns. Another important aspect of psychodynamic work is the way various feelings such as anxiety are being managed. Psychodynamic counselling tends to offer an experience that is different from the one that is expected.
