NSPC Courses

NSPC is the premier UK institution teaching and developing the existential approach in psychotherapy and counselling psychology.  NSPC has always welcomed overseas students and nearly half of our students are international.  NSPC  provides much of its teaching in intensive blocks as well as on a weekly basis. We pioneered online teaching in 2000, and all of our courses now have online elements, and three of our courses are totally online.

Our core courses continue to be the doctoral course in existential counselling psychology, and the doctorate in existential psychotherapy and counselling but we also have masters courses in psychotherapy, existential and humanistic pastoral care, existential coaching, in diversity studies,  and in autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions.
