Study with us
"I have found the course
invaluable, particularly as it has started to equip me
with the tools so as not to be drawn into a situation,
but to observe the unconscious behaviours, and address
the question – 'what is this all about?'"
Our Centre offers a lively and friendly learning environment. Our courses
have consistently achieved excellent student satisfaction ratings.
Most teaching takes place in small seminars and forums, with a focus on group
Bringing together experiential components and clinically-orientated teaching,
we offer programmes at undergraduate,
postgraduate research, which:
- Are designed for both clinical and non-clinical students,
each aspect supporting the other
- Provide a solid foundation of knowledge as well as
- Foster both academic rigour and creative thinking
- Deepen understanding of unconscious factors influencing
mental health as well as culture and society more broadly
- Enrich healthcare workers' and others' knowledge of the
emotional and other unconscious aspects of their relationships
with clients, colleagues and their workplace
- Can be studied full-time or part-time, with some modules
available individually for Continuing Professional Development
- Are specially timetabled to make attendance manageable for
those who are in employment or are living at a distance
If you are studying one of our taught courses you will have a personal tutor
and a dissertation supervisor who advises you on your work and helps to develop
structured independent study.
The wide variety of cultural, professional and educational backgrounds of our
students further enriches the learning environment in our Centre.
