Course Information



Our Counselling Children and Young People MSc is a multidisciplinary course that aims to promote an advanced level of knowledge and understanding that underpins practice in the area of Counselling with Children, Young People and their families.

This course supports you in developing your skills and theoretical knowledge of counselling with children, young people and their families. If you have a particular interest in counselling work with children then this course is designed with you in mind, allowing you to develop the skills and knowledge needed to pursue a career in this field. This course will allow you to study alongside practitioners from health, social or voluntary services who work with children and young people, as well as graduates of psychology and other social and behavioural sciences, allowing you to learn from each other’s experiences as well as course materials.

The course is taught by experienced counsellors and therapists that have varied backgrounds and specialisms. This course is also supported by practitioners from allied professions (e.g. psychology, social work, nursing, psychiatric nursing, law and psychiatry).

You have the option to graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling with Children and Young People or can complete all of the modules needed to be awarded an MSc in Counselling Children and Young People.

To count towards a professional body accreditation, such as UKCP or BACP, you will need to undertake a supervised placement practice of a minimum of 100 hours as well as a minimum 40 hours of personal therapy with an approved and BACP or UKCP accredited counsellor or therapist. A student membership of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a professional indemnity insurance and a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check are also mandatory for this course.
