The interdisciplinary approach which underpins this programme offers trainee Counselling practitioners a fusion of new and traditional approaches backed by research. This master degree in Psychotherapeutic Practice - Humanistic is offered at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David. 


The foundation of this programme draws on the work of Carl Rogers and the therapeutic relationship; the focusing work of Eugene Gendlin, and the dialogic and experiential work of the Gestalt tradition. 

From this, the contemporary approach of Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) opens up greater access of human emotion, as it engages with a close interest in the growing understanding of neuroscience and how emotions function differently from cognition in the brain.

The Psychotherapeutic Practice - Humanistic programme from The University of Wales Trinity Saint David will be taught in small groups so that the students have a significant opportunity to engage in the practice and development of their therapeutic competence. In addition, students will be taught through formal lecture and seminar groups where there will be an opportunity to discuss with each other and the tutors, the rich, diverse and often complex issues addressed in the programme.
