Psychology and Counselling is a broad-based introductory course for students who would like to learn more about what causes people to feel stressed or anxious and also why, in some cases people will develop a psychological disorder.

Psychology and Counselling is relevant for support workers, youth workers and those with a personal interest in counselling not just for others but also for you. We all experience levels of stress at some point in our life so why not learn why this occurs and how you deal with different levels of stress compared to the person next to you.
