The Master of Counselling (Interpersonal Dialogue) is a full professional training meeting recognised standards for counselling training and education. Designed to meet the needs of international students but also open to local students, the programme provides an accelerated route to a Masters qualification in counselling.

A distinctive feature of this programme is the opportunity to gain practice experience at a range of counselling agencies, including our own dedicated placement agency, Hope Park Counselling Centre; one of only four such research and practice centres in the UK.

You will be facilitated in your learning by core tutors who are experienced practitioners of counselling and psychotherapy, as well as by a clinical tutor who will meet with you regularly, and a practice supervisor who will help you reflect on your counselling work.
