Overview

  • Study a course accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), so you can be sure it's relevant and recognised throughout the profession
  • Build on your theoretical psychotherapeutic understanding to become a reflective practitioner, by improving your clinical skills and deepening your personal insight
  • Develop your psychotherapeutic theory and skills in an intellectually creative and stimulating environment
  • Develop transferable research skills related to psychotherapy and provide an opportunity to develop confidence in a self-critical and reflective approach to study

The Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy course from University of Derby provides an innovative approach to psychotherapeutic practice that enables you to learn about three different psychotherapeutic approaches; person-centered, attachment theory, and cognitive behavior psychotherapy. A trans-theoretical model is used to provide a framework to integrate these theories to acknowledge the complexities of human problems in a meaningful way.

You’ll be encouraged to develop your understanding of the theoretical, social, cultural and ideological contexts in which your clients perceive, confront and manage problems. You’ll also consider and analyse major trends and orientations within integrative therapeutic work and develop your ability to identify and use appropriate sources of supervision within counselling practice.
