This course is for students who have completed arecognised Level 3 course and want to develop their knowledge and skills.

The course is run over 2 years’ part time and is 420 Guided Learning Hours. Students must attend a minimum of 85% of the teaching part of the course.

  • Comparison of the philosophies of Non directive and Directive counselling.as exemplified by Person Centred Counselling and Cognitive Counselling and comparison with Biblical norms.
  • Exploring the meaning of eclecticism and integration; the advantages and disadvantages of integration; the methods of integration; an exploration of some integrated models – in particular the CCTS Model; the integration of secular tools into a Christian model and a practical project on integrating a skill/tool from another model into the CCTS Model
  • An in-depth study of codes of practice and ethics as they apply to counselling. A comparison of the codes of practice and ethics of 3 Professional Bodies including the Association of Christian Counsellors and how these compare to Biblical values.
  • An exploration of Brief Therapies including a comparison of Action Centred and Solution Focused Brief Therapies.
  • Understanding the responsibilities of a counsellor in respect of supervision and how to get maximum benefit from one’s own supervision.
  • To consider how counsellors can maintain quality of service and monitor outcomes of their counselling
  • An in-depth look at some of the issues that clients present in counselling including: depression; abuse (including spiritual abuse); obsessive compulsive disorder; eating disorders; substance abuse; relationship counselling; sexual identity confusion etc.
  • Underlying these topics will be issues of personal awareness and development and research into current growth areas in counselling. These will run concurrently with the other topics. For the research topic, each student will be required to present a minimum of 2 short presentations to the rest of the group over the duration of the course.
