Counselling psychology

The Society offers the Qualification in Counselling Psychology (QCoP)

If you want to practice as a Counselling Psychologist in the U.K. this is one of the main routes. By taking this route you will be able to apply for Chartered Membership of the Society, Full Membership of the Division of Counselling Psychology and be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Counselling Psychologist.  For further information about these official bodies please see the presentation 'Training to be a Counselling Psychologist'

If you wish to apply to enrol for the QCoP please ensure that you use the forms below and refer to the current Candidate Handbook and Regulations.  Your Co-ordinating Supervisor (CS) is available to guide you throughout the enrolment process and information about finding a CS is available below.

Please note that the Qualifications Office will not be able to process incomplete applications and that incomplete applications will be returned to applicants for completion via recorded delivery. Your application date will, therefore, be the date when your completed application has been received in the Qualifications Office and not necessarily the date you first applied.
