Career prospects

Graduates of the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling have enhanced employment prospects across a wide range of professions.

Graduates gain work as counsellors and psychotherapists working in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors, or can use their counselling training to enhance their career in a related profession such as health care, social work, nursing, or education.

Many former students now hold senior positions in the counselling field and have been leading the development of counselling and psychotherapy provision in Scotland.
