Counselling & Psychotherapy

A wide range of Counselling courses are available at Newman. Our joint honours undergraduate courses in Counselling Studies enable you to develop key counselling skills and develop a deep understanding of different counselling approaches. And our foundation degree in Counselling is accredited by the BACP.

We also specialise in professional counselling and psychotherapy postgraduate courses, designed to give you the skills, qualifications and know-how to become a professional counsellor or psychotherapist. Our Integrative Psychotherapy MSc is unique as it allows you to focus on child, adolescent or adult psychotherapy.

Our counselling programmes call upon a dedicated team who have a diverse range of expertise and experience. All staff have extensive experience as practitioners, and are dedicated to the training of counsellors and psychotherapists on professional courses. Furthermore, the team constantly pursues leading-edge research and scholarly activities to enrich their understanding and enhance their expertise – all of which ensures your learning experience is as valuable and rewarding as possible.
