Coaching Psychology Group

DWOP’s Coaching Psychology Group (DWOP CPG) was established in April 2008 and is a professional Group for Psychologists, Coaches, Coach Trainers/Providers and Academics.   We are committed to raising the standards and professionalism of Coaching.

As Ireland’s only Coaching Psychology Group, we have a professional Code of Conduct, frequent CPD events and Forums and other member focused services. DWOP’s CPG has a growing membership and is run by psychologists and non-psychologist coaching professionals.

Membership is open to PSI members interested in coaching.  We also welcome non-psychologists who are interested in the appropriate application of psychological theory and methods to coaching practice.   The required PSI category of membership for non-psychologists, who join the Coaching Psychology Group, is that of ‘Correspondence Subscriber’.
