Overview

You’ll be introduced to a range of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive, behavioural and person-centred approaches, before specialising in integrative approaches.

This is not a professional integrative counselling course (please see our BA (Hons) Counselling and Therapeutic Practice). Our BPS-accredited Psychology with Counselling degree is an excellent foundation if you are considering a career in the social care sector. Graduates can build careers in clinical and counselling psychology in particular, after postgraduate experience and possibly Masters-level study. 

A key element is the hands-on experience you’ll gain throughout your studies. You’ll be offered clinical experience on campus and have access to a range of exciting opportunities, including completion of specialist short courses, professional certificates and work placements – another great boost to your CV.

Careers

Graduates of this Psychology with Counselling (Hons) degree at University of South Wales will have the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society and will therefore be eligible for further postgraduate training in one of the applied areas of psychology (e.g. clinical, counselling, educational, forensic, health, occupational or sport and exercise psychology).

You’ll be well equipped for careers in the social care sector. Additionally having knowledge of different therapeutic approaches in addition to an accredited psychology degree will be a significant advantage for those considering careers as Psychology Well-Being Practitioners under the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies framework.
