Dr K.C. Lee DPsych., C.Psychol.
Counselling Psychology is embedded in the discipline of psychology and concerns itself with applied areas of psychological work, which overlap with the provinces of psychotherapy, clinical psychology, counselling and psychiatry. It is informed by a number of philosophical stances underlying issues of development and change, with a particular focus on the wide range of human psychological functioning across the lifespan.
The Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology is therefore designed to provide opportunities for professional and personal development in an applied field that values both medical and human science, while taking the position that all knowledge is contextually based.
