Message from Dr Helen Nicholas, Division of Counselling Psychology Chair 

Welcome to the DCoP website. Over the last two years, as DCoP Chair, I have worked with the committee to try to deliver on our strategic objectives which we chose to reflect views of members and also to be in line with the 5 year plan of the whole BPS. The committee thought that members may like an update on our progress so I have written an annual review to this end. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce our next chair Dr Maureen McIntosh and encourage you to also get involved to help us work towards our goals. If you have any feedback, you can contact me on [email protected]

The Division of Counselling Psychology (DCoP) promotes the professional interests of counselling psychologists.

We aim to develop psychology as a profession and as a body of knowledge and skills.

We support our members by providing training and advice, by holding regular events, and by keeping members up to date with the latest divisional news.
