About the FdA Counselling Studies programme

The FdA Counselling Studies programme is ideal for anyone working within the Healthcare sector who would like to gain further insight into Therapeutic Intervention. The course focuses heavily on Personal Development which enables greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, preparing individuals for client work. Alternatively, this programme would also suit someone who would like to gain experience in this sector to help develop career opportunities.

This undergraduate Foundation Degree will provide a challenging and high quality academic grounding for future counselling practitioners. It seeks to do this by encouraging students to develop the integration of academic skills, counselling skills and competencies, and knowledge required by those working in areas of the counselling profession. Students will develop an understanding of therapeutic models of counselling practice, the influence of other subject disciplines, such as psychology and mental health, an awareness of key client issues such as addictions, abuse and eating disorders and an understanding of how culture and diversity impact on the counselling role and relationship. It will further empower students through a process of personal development to become autonomous practitioners aligned with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework, taking into consideration issues such as confidentiality, record keeping, insurance and contracting.
