BACP Coaching A Division of BACP

Vision and Mission

Established in 2010, BACP Coaching is, like other BACP divisions, managed by BACP members on a pro bono voluntary basis, and supported by BACP staff.

Our mission is to promote ethical, effective and professional coaching for the wellbeing and enhancement of individuals and organisations. Our core values are congruent with the BACP Ethical Framework. Specifically, we aim to be:

  • Transparent and consultative
  • Generative and innovative
  • Inclusive and collaborative
  • Responsive and supportive
  • Good value for money and financially viable.

We aim to create a supportive, generative and informative forum for dialogue, networking, belonging, growing, learning and the development of coach specific professional standards for BACP members. Many of our members embraced coaching some time ago; BACP now facilitates it as a practice area more explicitly.

We also aim to provide quality information about coaching to clients and purchasers of coaching and related services, particularly where those services are underpinned or informed by therapeutic principles.
