Phoebus chose Regent’s because of its reputation. He knew that several current eminent existential thinkers taught at Regent’s, and so felt it would be a good place to carry out his training.
Programme: MA Psychotherapy & Counselling
I chose the Master’s programme as part of the five-year training necessary to qualify for UKCP registration. I am working towards becoming a psychotherapist. I’ve gained an in-depth insight into various psychotherapeutic theories, and had practical experience with different therapeutic skills and group work.
I have found the professional and personal development group sessions to be the most interesting and challenging part of the course. Through these sessions I have been able to observe first-hand how it is that I function in a group, and my own personal style of relating. The sessions have also highlighted the areas that I need to pay more attention to.
I started a clinical placement at a private practice half-way through my MA. At the placement I am assigned three clients a week, with fortnightly supervision. Through this placement I am gaining vital client work experience.
I think one of the best aspects of studying at Regent’s is its physical setting. I have really enjoyed spending time in my breaks in its beautiful gardens and Regent’s Park, just outside its gates.
