This is a worthy achievement and recognition of Cooper’s hard work, dedication, and commitment to numerous research supervisees. He said: “I was really delighted to receive this award—it meant a lot to me. It was totally out of the blue and the first thing I did was tell my mum! It felt like a real recognition of the work that a lot of us do as research supervisors to support, encourage, and guide students in their research. It is one of my favourite parts of the academic role, but also really demanding. The award was also a recognition of the fabulous work of the Roehampton PsychD team, which has been one of the leading counselling psychology programmes in the country for several years.”
