Psychology explores human thought, feelings and behaviour, and has strong links with counselling, which adds specific theories about mental health and distress, and development of helping skills. You will gain an understanding of people as well as recognising the complexities that underlie our identities, social relations, emotions and the decisions that we make. You will graduate with a Psychology degree accredited by the British Psychological Society, plus in-depth knowledge of Counselling.
