Counselling, Psychotherapy and Applied Social Sciences offer four Postgraduate Research programmes: PhD in Counselling Studies, MSc by Research in Counselling Studies, PhD in Health in Social Science and MSc by Research in Health Humanities and Arts.
We have a longstanding commitment to original empirical and theoretical research that engages critically with the practices of counselling and psychotherapy, and we are especially keen to encourage research concerned with the interface between counselling, psychotherapy and social, cultural and political life, and research that draws directly on practitioners’ own therapeutic work.
