Psychotherapists and counsellors support people who are experiencing a range of mental health conditions or who may be struggling with problems such as relationship issues, bereavement, meaning or identity. Employing ‘talking therapies’, psychotherapists and counsellors work collaboratively with individuals, couples, families, or groups to help them bring about change to enhance wellbeing.
The Psychotherapy and Counselling (Hons) program of the Plymouth Marjon University provides a rounded education in the theory, research, and practice of psychotherapy and counselling. You’ll explore various approaches to psychotherapy and counselling, such as person-centred, cognitive-behavioural, and psychodynamic, and you will develop a personal philosophy for your own approach to practice. The programme will equip you with the underpinning knowledge and skills required to become an effective practitioner, through in-class experiential exercises and placement opportunities. These will be further enhanced so that you become competent, ethical, and effective, preparing you to work in a range of professional settings, such as hospitals, schools and within the criminal justice system.
What might you become?
The degree offers excellent preparation for a range of careers. Psychotherapists and counsellors work in private practice and in a diverse range of organisations (e.g., schools, charities). The interpersonal and communication skills developed through our degree are highly transferable and could prepare graduates for a range of careers that include human resources, healthcare, and education. You may also choose to pursue specialised postgraduate training to work with specific client groups or using a particular model, or to pursue a career in research.
