Special Group in Coaching Psychology
Welcome to the Special Group in Coaching Psychology.
Welcome to the Special Group in Coaching Psychology (SGCP). The SGCP supports coaching psychologists, coaches, individual clients and organisations who are interested in learning more about coaching psychology and coaching services.
Our aim is to promote the development of coaching psychology as a professional activity and clarify the benefits of psychological approaches within coaching practice. We are committed to fostering excellence in coaching practice through: research, events, publications, discussion and professional development.
The SGCP is committed to providing easier access to psychological resources to organisations, non-psychologist coaches, as well as individual purchasers of coaching services.
