About

This Counselling Psychology programme at Teesside University delivers professional academic education combined with experiential training to produce graduates who are competent in delivering evidence-based psychological therapy.

Overview

The Counselling Psychology programme at Teesside University emphasises a reflective practitioner approach, allowing the integration of psychological theory, skills and research alongside a highly developed capacity for self reflection and awareness. 

The core theoretical philosophy of the doctorate is that of an integrative/relational stance - recognising the primacy of the therapeutic relationship. As such, the course is an integrated programme of study, utilising critical appraisal of psychological theory, practice and research.

Career

The programme provides the relevant qualification for graduates to practise as counselling psychologists. Counselling psychologists work in a wide number of settings and this course prepares graduates for careers in the NHS, the private sector and the public sector.

The programme team regularly receives feedback from employers including the local NHS Trusts. We have increased NHS placements for our trainees, and some trainees conduct their research within NHS settings.

Placement providers commented that our students are ‘enthusiasm, bring fresh ideas, are an additional resource and well prepared; they encourage reflection, undertake research and help us push our own practice’, which are all indicative of the transferable skills that you can take into your professional working life when you graduate.

This doctorate is accredited by the British Psychological Society. Graduates are eligible to apply for Chartered Counselling Psychologist Status.
