Goldsmiths Therapeutic Studies provides a challenging and stimulating interdisciplinary environment offering introductory courses, professional trainings and advanced study in arts therapies, counselling, psychotherapy, psychoanalytic studies and psychosocial studies.

In our professional trainings we foster the development of skilled and reflective practitioners who are critically engaged with evidence based and research practices. With teaching staff who are experienced practitioners in the field and with strong links to employers in the public, voluntary and private sectors, we provide the learning and skills necessary for the modern workplace. 

Our academic and research activities encourage an interdisciplinary and pluralistic approach, contributing to the development of theory and practice in a broad range of therapeutic approaches and study. We explore the development of contemporary therapeutic disciplines and practices in their cultural, historical and social contexts and are committed to working with questions of identity and difference, equality and diversity.
