Modules 2 and 3 of our MA programme focus specifically on working with children and adolescents, covering all aspects of the theory and practice of child and adolescent counselling. The training takes place over two years and is part time with evening or daytime options available.

Together, these courses combine an in-depth exploration of child development alongside intensive training of the counselling skills necessary to work with troubled and vulnerable children and young people.

Read about our Student Experiences and find out what it's like to study at Terapia on our website...

Sasha Morphitis completed her MA at Terapia two and a half years ago. Since then, she has gone on to work and teach for the training organisation, as well as practice privately.

Working with children for over twenty years in various roles, including as a primary school teacher and counsellor in the education sector, Sasha decided to enrol for the full five-year masters training in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and Counselling.

Sasha found that the integrative model taught at Terapia suited her ethos, personality and previous experience.

CPD // Here at Terapia we offer an Introduction to Therapeutic Work with Children.

This five-day experiential workshop is designed to teach participants how to help children deal with their difficult feelings and is intended to give an insight into the complexities of psychotherapeutic work with children.

Created for practitioners who work with children in a variety of roles, from social workers, teachers and SENCO to nursery teachers, classroom assistants, school nurses and foster carers, the course addresses the many daily challenges faced by these professionals who encounter psychological distress and emotional difficulties presented by children.

This course is not a stand-alone qualification in child counselling or child psychotherapy, however participants of the course will receive a Terapia Certificate in Introduction to Therapeutic Work with Children which equates to 32 CPD hours.
