In February 2014, after more than a decade’s work, Mick Cooper left the Counselling Unit at the University of Strathclyde to take up a post at the University of Roehampton in London. This one day workshop is a unique opportunity to experience Mick as he presents a review of his work during this time at Strathclyde, exploring a range of ideas and practices that can contribute to the development of Person-Centred Counselling. The first part of the seminar looks at existentialism: its understanding of freedom, limitations and the need for meaning, and how person-centred therapists can incorporate these understandings into their practice. The seminar then goes on to look at relational depth, reviewing the latest research findings in the field which help us to understand what it means to relate deeply with clients, and how this can be facilitated. Finally, the seminar goes on to look at the pluralistic framework: discussing its core principles and practices, and how these relate to--and can be used by--person-centred therapists. The workshop will take the form of an interactive lecture, with opportunities for questions, discussion and experiential exercises. This one-off event is priced at £50 and will be followed by the Mary Kilborn lecture (a free evening lecture), in which Mick will explore work and developments in a fourth area of inquiry: school-based counselling.
Early booking is advised! You are warmly welcomed!

Participants needed
My name is Elaine Weir.
I am conducting research into sexual attraction in person centred counselling relationships as part of my Counselling MSc at Strathclyde University.
I am looking for counsellors to take part in one to one interviews.
To be part of this study you must be a person centred counsellor either qualified or in training, and a member of a governing body who has been sexually attracted to a client but hasn’t EVER taken it any further.
Interviews will last about an hour and there will be an opportunity to debrief afterwards. There will also be an opportunity to speak to an independent counsellor after the interview if any participant feels they need extra support after speaking about this.
Anything shared will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and any identifying information will be removed from the data that I collect.
If you are interested in taking part please contact me at for more information.

The Co-ordinating Group plan to recruit a new newsletter editor as Rebecca Black, our current editor plans to step down at the AGM in May, after doing this job for over two years.

Rebecca has enjoyed the editorial role but nevertheless thinks that it is time to hand over to someone new to keep our PCT Scotland newsletter full of fresh articles from different people; she also wishes to offer the opportunity to another member who may benefit from the CPD experience.

Ideally we would like to invite members to consider this role who enjoy reading and writing and who have some experience of desk top publishing.

The editor’s role involves approaching potential contributors of new articles, and compiling three editions of the newsletter each year in March, July and October.

The role is offered with an hourly fee of £15 per hour from PCT Scotland funds; the average number of hours it takes per edition has been around 10 hours.

The CG would also like to invite a second member to volunteer to assist the editor, with a view to taking over as editor after two years.

For more information or to express interest in this paid role, contact Catherine Cowie at
