At the recent BPS Annual General meeting the membership voted in favour of changing the status of the Special Group in Coaching Psychology to a Division within the society. Following this decision, we are now working on how existing Special Group members will transition to the relevant new Division Grades, and how new members can join.

You will be able to apply to the new Division Grades from November 2021. If you join the Special Group now, you will be transitioned to the relevant Grade in November. Details of howto join are below.

Please note the current fees are under review and may be subject to change.

If you have any queries concerning membership or the new Division please email [email protected] and our Customer Support Team will get back to you.
