Coaching Today is the new quarterly professional journal for counsellors and psychotherapists involved in the field of coaching.

Coaching Today provides a platform for education, debate and sharing of best practice for those working in the diverse field of coaching, ranging from private practitioners, line managers, peers, mentors, trainer and educators, and will make a key contribution to this rapidly expanding and varied profession.

Our readership comprises counselling and psychotherapy professionals who are retraining and practising as coaches, either in addition or as an alternative to their current therapy practice, as well as coaches from a diverse range of other backgrounds including management and human resources.

Coaching Today is distributed to members of BACP Coaching in January, April, July and October. Membership of the division is £20 per year for individuals, £50 for organisations, and is subject to being a member (individual or organisational) of BACP.

Non members can subscribe at a cost of £25 per year for four issues. Just contact
