Four Days !!!  From Thursday 27 April 6 pm to Monday 1 May 3 pm

Wiston Lodge

Co-Counsellors living in Scotland are delighted to offer the McCoCo 2017 residential workshop. We are offering this exciting, international, challenging, supportive, fun space from Thursday evening 27 April to Monday 1 May. This will be the 19th! McCoCo residential workshop. The Monday is a Bank Holiday for everyone in the UK.

We have booked again the wonderful venue 25 miles from Edinburgh called Wiston Lodge(link is external). It is a magnificent 19th century Lodge house, set in its own extensive wooded grounds. The re are several spaces suitable for different kinds of workshops including a sports hall for dancing and a big room for the opening circle. For more pictures of the venue, click here (link is external).

Exciting WORKSHOPS are coming to McCoCo 2017

Since McCoCo 2010 we are inviting people to offer workshops in advance. This resulted in very exciting and well-prepared offerings and inspired even more spontaneously offered workshops!  Co-counsellors registered with CoCoInfo, the CCI Co-Counselling web site, can view which exciting workshops have been offered beforehand in 2010,   201120122013 and in 2014. There you can see how much innovation and inspiration McCoCo has been offering. For McCoCo 2016 we are going to this again. To view these workshops, you need to log in!

The actual workshop program is open and will be created by McCoCo’s participants at the spot. For this we organise a CoCo Open Space. Anyone can offer a co-counselling workshop or ask for a topic group, massage, meditation and indeed anything what makes your and other people’s heart sing. As well as participating in workshops and support groups or simply having co-counselling sessions you can choose to enjoy dancing, chatting with people from overseas in front of a log fire, walking in the lovely grounds or in the nearby Tinto hills etc.

Afterwards, the 2 May, there is the McCoCo Conference 2017 near Edinburgh! ‘


New to Co-Counselling?
We extend an especially warm welcome to Co-Counsellors who have recently completed Fundamentals or who have not been to an event like this before. This event provides an opportunity for you to meet Co-Counsellors from throughout Scotland and beyond. We will offer a workshop especially for first-timers at the beginning of the workshop. We encourage also the forming of buddies.

Feeling rusty…?
No problem, the only requirements for having sessions is to be able

  • to give your free, aware caring attention to your client
  • to refuse to enter into a session contract or to give a suggestion if you don’t want to
  • to keep confidentiality

If you are able to do this, you will very quickly remember again what you have learnt earlier in Co-Counselling, especially when you experience the support, freedom and encouragement that McCoCo has on offer.

Scotland too far away or McCoCo difficult to travel to…? 
As there are so many Co-Counsellors in Edinburgh we can possibly offer accommodation with Co-Counsellors in Edinburgh before and after McCoCo. Tick the relevant box on the booking form.

If in doubt, talk to Chris Jamieson, 0131-332 4548
