The B.A. in Counselling Skills and Psychotherapy Studies is a 3-year programme, recently revised and validated by Quality and Qualification Ireland (QQI) in 2015. The course is highly interactive and it has been designed primarily for those who want to study towards becoming competent professional practitioners in counselling related areas. It is also aimed at those wishing to develop counselling skills that may be useful in their current position for their own personal and professional development.
Delivered over 3 years, it combines a range of comprehensive theory and practical skills development. Each year consists of two 12-week terms. The course will commence in September and can be taken on a full time or part-time basis. The programme is taught using a combination of classroom based and blended learning techniques. This allows the learner to access classes in person or using on-line facilities. In certain modules attendance may be a requirement.
The full-time programme runs 3 days per week at the ICHAS College Limerick from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
