“From a young age, I was interested in humanistic psychology and philosophy. The Foundation Degree has person-centred counselling theory at its heart, without neglecting other theories such as psychodynamic and cognitive behaviour. It gives great importance to personal development which will help me become a more balanced practitioner, and provides the opportunity to have philosophical discussions with individuals who share my passion.”
Kerstin progressed from this Foundation Degree to the Honours Top-up in Counselling at UCW.
“I wouldn’t have got my full-time job as a counsellor had it not been for UCW!”
Natalie first came to Weston to seek treatment for her own addition problems. After getting her life back on track, she completed this Foundation Degree and progressed to employment as a counsellor in a rehabilitation centre for addiction and alcoholism.
