Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Skills FdSc



What will I learn?

This course offers the opportunity to develop wide-ranging skills in counselling, which will support students in working towards meeting the requirements of professional registration post-qualification. The Foundation Degree also provides an opportunity to advance to Level 6, furthering education and skills by progressing onto the BSc (Hons) top-up at University Campus Oldham. The course is structured around modules that deliver professional training components. This allows students to broaden and deepen their understanding of counselling-related issues. Students will develop their competence in working with the person-centred counselling approach. A wide range of professional skills, including communication, reflective practice, self-awareness, research skills, and other therapeutic models including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) will be developed and enhanced. External individual supervision by an appropriately qualified and experienced professional as part of the required placement will further develop understanding and skills of personal and professional reflection and development by working on a voluntary basis in a real-world counselling setting.
