Division of Counselling Psychology COP26: Statement of SupportShow content
COP26, the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, is being held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November. As Counselling Psychologists, we know that the environment has a critical impact on people’s physical and psychological well-being and join other allied professions in supporting the delegates attending this most important of meetings.
RAPPS (Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors) Registered Clinical Supervisors
A list of DCoP Members and RAPPS registered clinical supervisors who are willing to offer to their time in a voluntary capacity to support those who are working with Covid-19 has been complied. All arrangements must be made directly with individuals on the list. If you would like to be added, please email us at [email protected] with your name, contact details and areas of specialism.
Potential remote placement for trainees – placement organisers
We are aware that some placements are on hold due to changes in services, due to the current Covid-19 situation. We have compiled a list of potential placements that are perhaps experiencing a higher level of demand in the remote delivery of therapy.
Please be aware that all training institutions have their own placement criteria, process of setting up and registering. DCoP do not have access to any of this information. These are only potential placement options for trainees, and no monitoring or checks are taking place. This list is for information sharing only and any arrangements are the responsibility of individual trainees and their institutions.
Get in touch at [email protected] with a contact name, email, name of organisation, link to service/ website, region and any other relevant details.

Working Relationally Series
Research is a key part of what we as Counselling Psychologists engage with, whether thats the research we engage with as we train, the research we conduct in order to qualify, or indeed after qualification and for use in our practice as we move forward in our careers.
There are a number of initiatives that will be in progress as the Division develops, but one of them is the research hub.
As ever, this Division seeks to promote our profession and to serve its members, so any ideas you may have, please do get in touch with us.
For the Hub, you can contact [email protected]
