The Newport Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Research at the University of South Wales has a rapidly growing reputation for research and innovation. The Centre, formally launched in November 2007, complements the University’s long-established reputation for teaching counselling and psychotherapy in South Wales. NCCPR focuses on developing a critical and reflexive approach to understanding counselling and psychotherapy, working at the interface of theory and practice. The research culture combines rigour in challenging the assumptions of every day practice, with relevance to practitioners, service providers and clients. NCCPR includes staff with a wide range of counselling and psychotherapy interests including CBT, integrative therapy, arts psychotherapy, music therapy, counselling children and young people, consultative supervision, power and influence in therapy and community participatory research.
