The Minster Centre provides professional training in counselling and psychotherapy, and a range of community-based therapy services. The Minster Centre was founded with the purpose of addressing the growing divergence between the humanistic and psychoanalytic schools of psychotherapy. The initial concern was to evolve a training philosophy that could integrate these different schools but avoid producing a training that was either eclectic, in the sense of including anything and everything, or that presented itself as a new, rigidly defined alternative. The training therefore begins with the belief that many approaches have valuable contributions to make to the broad field of psychotherapy and counselling.
These programmes were developed and are delivered and assessed by The Minster Centre, awarded by and quality assured by Middlesex University.
