Welcome to the 3rd Volume of the International Journal of Coaching Psychology (IJCP). This peer-reviewed journal publishes a range of articles, papers and reports examining the theory, research, and practice of coaching psychology. Published by the National Wellbeing Service, the IJCP can be freely viewed online and has no author publishing fees. Different options are also available for licensing and Open Access.

To date, topics have included Coaching and supervision through the COVID-19 pandemic, and in 2021 cognitive behavioural coaching, creative problem solving, the coaching relationship, Educational Coaching and mindfulness-informed educational coaching (see Appendix, Volume 2). A range of coaching psychology approaches and techniques have also been covered. Throughout this period, these important themes illustrate the significant role  that coaching psychology can offer to support individuals, communities and organisations navigating this time of global uncertainty.

We would like to thank each of the authors, reviewers, editorial team, and the International Editorial Board for their contribution. However, we are very sad to report that Dr Alison Whybrow PhD passed away on Sunday 27th February 2022. She was a committed member of the IJCP Editorial Board and a Consulting Editor. Beyond this, over the last two decades Alison made a significant contribution to the development of coaching psychology both nationally and internationally. More recently her work has been focused on climate change and coaching, having written, and presented work on topics such as Regenerative coaching. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues.

We also wish to acknowledge the ongoing support of the following professional body and corporate sponsors (https://ijcp.nationalwellbeingservice.com/our-sponsors):
