Message from Dr Maureen McIntosh, Division of Counselling Psychology Chair 

Welcome to the DCoP website. I am both pleased and proud to be the DCoP Chair and represent the views of members of the Division of Counselling Psychologists. In the next few months, I will be working with the committee to define then deliver this year's strategy which we will choose to reflect the views of members and also to be in line with the 5 year plan of the whole BPS. I have written a letter to introduce myself to members and also outline some of the current issues and recent activities. 

Since becoming Chair, members have been in touch about a variety of issues concerning race, social justice, inequality and employment discrimination. I would like to encourage you to also get involved to help us work towards our goals and welcome feedback and ideas from the membership as we grow stronger and become more visible as a professional group. 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.
