Foundation Degree in Counselling

The value of counselling to improve wellbeing and quality of life is increasingly recognised. From everyday worries to serious mental health issues like chronic anxiety and depression, counsellors and psychotherapists are helping us cope. The OU’s Foundation Degree in Counselling (XO9), developed in partnership with the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB), prepares students to become a professional counsellor – equipping them with the theoretical understanding and practical skills required to work in this field.
