The Child Therapy programme provides students with the latest neuroscience and psychology understandings of child mental health. This training includes two clinical training courses, one of which is a three-year MA in Integrative Child Psychotherapy that leads to qualification as an art psychotherapist. A 2-year child counselling course leading to BACP registration to practice as a qualified child counsellor. For students interested in taking on more complex cases to become a child psychotherapeutic counsellor with UKCP registration, we offer an optional training year.
