I was saddened to hear that Charlie O’Leary, one of the person-centred world’s well-loved and biggest characters, passed away from a stroke on 20th October 2019.  

Charlie, from Denver, Colorado, was a frequent contributor to person-centred training in Scotland, often visiting Strathclyde University as a guest speaker to teach the students amidst a lot of laughter and usually a bit of singing. 

My experience of Charlie, and the many stories I have heard from colleagues of their meetings with him, paint the picture of a warm and funny man who was very generous in sharing his knowledge and experiences. He is best known for his work on person-centred couples and family therapy and this work is, and will continue to be, a major contribution to the person-centred approach. He will be very much missed,

On behalf of PCT Scotland I send condolences to Charlie’s family, who are in our thoughts.

This course is aimed at counsellors with a Diploma ion Counselling or Counselling Skills users with  COSCA Counselling Skills certificate or equivalent as their training. It is designed to equip the less experienced practitioner with a better understanding and use of supervision, as well as to provide a significant first step for the longer trained and more experienced practitioner in their role as supervisors. This course has full COSCA validation.

The course runs for 6 sessions over 3 weekends in October, November and December from 9.30 to 4.30 each day.

The CG have been investigating the possibility of PCT Scotland changing to Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation status. In our recent membership survey, 53% of respondents expressed interest in hearing more about that. Treasurer, Alex Arthur, has kindly put together this table that explains what these changes would mean. It also includes info on what it would mean to become a Limited Company.

To consider this further the CG would like to consult with members, and ask that members send any thoughts and comments to secretary@pctscotland.co.uk by Friday 25th October.  This will allow us to discuss this matter further at the AGM on 2nd November. 

Thank you in advance for your views.
