Qualification in Counselling Psychology

The Qualification in Counselling Psychology (QCoP) is the independent route to training as a counselling psychologist for those who choose not to, or are unable to, undertake a professional doctorate at university.

This is an integrated, doctoral level qualification which leads to eligibility for Chartered membership of the society and full membership of the Division of Counselling Psychology.

The Counselling Psychology Qualifications Board will be running Supervisor training workshops for those wishing to supervise on the new QCoP (post-2018) qualification and to refresh their QCoP pre-2018 training.

The Supervisor training is a requirement that needs to be completed by anyone wishing to supervise candidates on the QCoP.

To be a supervisor you must be:

  • Chartered
  • HCPC Registered
  • a Full Member of the Division of Counselling Psychology (normally for at least two years)

For those already supervising on QCoP (pre-2018) route, you will be required to complete a new Module 2 distance-learning training.

For those who are not already supervising on QCoP, you will be required to complete Module 1 & 2 distance-learning trainings.
