Graduates of the B.A. in Counselling Skills & Psychotherapy Studies can be found working in a wide variety of organisations areas such as private and public residential and non-residential addiction treatment centres, schools, colleges, youth services, prison services, hospitals and of course, in private practice.

Opportunities also exist working with many disparate groups, including but not limited to young people, women at risk of domestic violence, the elderly and those with mental health issues.

The Government has committed to increased funding of mental health initiatives as part of the national counselling service.For many the opportunity to work in private practice as a professional Counsellor is hugely important. With the forthcoming statutory regulation of counselling and psychotherapy, the fact that this programme has been validated by QQI should not be underestimated.
