Our programmes are based on a dialogue between the person-centred approach, located within the humanistic tradition, and psychodynamic perspectives, located within the psychoanalytic tradition.
Students are encouraged to experience, experiment with and integrate insights, values and practices drawn from each perspective, and all courses are taught by tutors who are experienced counselling/psychotherapy practitioners.
Students benefit from a high level of tutor input, including individual tutorials, seminars, lectures and personalised feedback, in addition to having many opportunities to learn from self-reflection and participation in a variety of experiential student groups.
