Psychotherapy and counselling are general terms for interpersonal and relational intervention of treating mental and emotional disorders by engaging clients to vocalize their condition and related issues with a mental health professional.

Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques focusing on experiential relationship building, communication and behaviour modification. This often includes alleviation of distress, an increase in individual sense of well being and reduction of subjective discomforting experiences. All these are designed to improve the mental health of a client, or to improve group relationships.

This course aims to equip students with theoretical counselling and psychotherapy skills. Students will be taught talk therapy techniques such as Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These psychotherapy and counselling techniques can be also be applied to areas for personal development, relationships, workplace and family.
