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.
