Be very careful with these types of courses. It is NOT accredited by the BPS which means that it does not confer GBC and will mean you are ineligible to qualify as a chartered Psychologist of any kind (without completing a conversion masters later). I appreciate that your career aim may not be to pursue Psychology as a career, however, BPS accredited courses cover a range of standardised modules and topics that will set you in good stead for therapeutic practice and provides a measure of quality of your education for employers.
If you want to be an occupational therapist, play therapist, art therapist, counsellor or similar then you should just do those courses directly.
Similar to your question in your other thread, specialising at this stage is almost certainly pointless. There is very little you'll learn in a classroom that will put you significantly ahead than where you'd get to in specialised training later on and it won't compare to the learning you will gain through experience. If you want to work in these areas, go and seek relevant experience while you're at university (many of these are paid jobs) and do a good, solid, general Psychology (or similar) degree and then seek to specialise when you have that base to work from.
