Psychology: applied and clinical

Interested in qualifying as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner?

Join us at our Colchester campus to study at one of two levels.  We offer our Graduate Certificate which is relevant for those without an undergraduate degree, and our Postgraduate Certificate for those that do.  Our courses will equip you to facilitate self-help processes to support those with common mental health problems, such as mild to moderate depression or anxiety.

To ensure you will be a well-rounded and confident practitioner, we use small group processes which allows us to personalise your learning,  We also work closely with our local IAPT compliant partners and service users to ensure our courses are responsive to the changing needs of society.

When you choose to study with us, you'll gain more than just a qualification.  You'll be part of our learning community, and we've got plenty to offer.  Check out our facilities, and find out more about the School of Health and Social Care here.


Why study here?
  • Both of our PWP courses are accredited by the British Psychological Society against the requirements required to qualify as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner.
  • Our blend of theory and practice will equip you with the necessary skills to make you a confident practitioner 
  • We have a new telephone exchange skills lab to help you build experience of telephone based consultation processes.

Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.

The teaching and assessment methods listed on each course page show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
