Course Description

This course introduces the student to the major psychotherapeutic, counselling and coaching approaches. While the entire breadth of the field is covered this is done within a challenging philosophical framework.

The programme provides an excellent academic background for the development of students’ practical skills and all students will be encouraged to find their own path and explore those concerns, which are immediate and meaningful to them.

The course covers existential, humanistic and psychoanalytic theory and practice, whilst using the philosophically based existential approach to allow for a critical stance to the study and practice of psychotherapy, counselling and coaching.

Upon completion, students will be awarded with a certificate from the Existential Academy.
