Course Overview

The study of psychology which explores why humans feel, think and act the way they do has strong links with the study of counselling skills, which adds specific theories about distress and help and development in listening and helping skills.

Psychology will teach you how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in our well-equipped labs using a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques. This will fit well with exploring concepts and debates in counselling, as well as honing some practical skills in effective listening and communication. On this programme you will learn to reflect broadly on situations and to contextually apply what you know.
