About

This Counselling (Interpersonal Dialogue) programme from The University of Edinburgh is a two year, full-time professionally-accredited postgraduate qualification in counselling. It is an accelerated version of the well-established Master of Counselling (MCouns), which is offered over four years part-time.

Overview

The Counselling (Interpersonal Dialogue) programme from The University of Edinburgh is specifically designed for international students, with significant professional experience in related fields, who are seeking to gain a fully accredited professional qualification in counselling in the United Kingdom.

Combining academic rigour with high quality professional training, the programme provides unique opportunities for training, learning and research in the field of counselling and psychotherapy.

The award of this degree allows graduates to practise as counsellors or therapists in the UK and in other countries with equivalent professional and academic standards.

The programme is founded in dialogue between the person-centred approach and psychodynamic perspectives in counselling. It involves substantial placement practice (internships) with counselling clients.

Career opportunities

The Master of Counselling (Interpersonal Dialogue) enables graduates to practise as counsellors or psychotherapists in the UK, and in other countries with equivalent professional and academic standards.

Graduates can gain employment as counsellors and psychotherapists working in the statutory, voluntary/non-government and private sectors, or can use their counselling training to enhance their career in a related profession such as health care, social work, nursing, or education.

Increasingly, employers are seeking masters qualifications from applicants for management roles in counselling and psychotherapy, and graduates will be well positioned for these opportunities.
