Giving appropriate and responsible advice requires a strong, grounded framework in understanding human behavior and psychology. That’s exactly what our counselling and therapy degrees offer.

You’ll explore approaches to offering guidance on human issues whether it’s to individuals, families or couples. 

You’ll do more than just the theory. When you study counselling or therapy, you’ll have the opportunity to put these skills into practice and you’ll graduate with the ability to actually make a difference to people’s lives.
