The program is designed to equip students with professional skills and techniques to effectively conduct therapy. It also aims to equip students with skills to understand how psychotherapy can be implemented in other areas of development such as personal life, relationships, family and workplace.

Psychotherapy is a general term 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 behavior modification. This often includes alleviation of distress, an increase in individual sense of well-being and reduction of subjective discomforting experiences.

The course is committed to educating students on different disciplines of psychology and psychotherapy applications, as well as promoting specialized training for students who are keen to practice counselling / psychotherapy professionally and independently. The course is designed to specifically teach students the three types of therapy approaches that psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists use to conduct therapy sessions. They are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Hypnotherapy. Students will also be taught on the ethical aspect of counseling such as client confidentiality.

Graduates of the course will be legible for membership with the National Council of Psychotherapists, UK (NCP) upon fulfilment of 120 practicum hours. The membership with NCP enables and accredits students to practise privately in care corners and in hospitals.
