It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of former Psychologists Protection Society Trust Chairman Dr Douglas McFadzean.  He passed away at home in Stirling, Scotland on Thursday 28th June 2018.

Douglas was one of NHS Scotland’s most experienced counsellors in primary care and was formerly the Executive Director of the professional body COSCA – “Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland”.  Dr McFadzean was a member of The Psychologists Protection Society for several decades before joining the Board in 2010 to help provide assistance to fellow professionals who find themselves in difficulties.  He served as Chairman for just over a year.

PPS Services Director Ewan Murray said “In 2010 my father, PPS founder Sandy Murray decided to turn PPS into a not-for-profit Trust.  Dr McFadzean was his first choice as a Trustee, as he knew he would bring wisdom, strength and humour to the role.  Sandy was very pleased when Douglas became Chairman, overseeing the organisation’s transition into a not-for-profit Trust. We all came to appreciate Dr McFadzean’s valuable input during his tenure and he remained in contact after his retirement to provide sage advice when needed.  I will remember him fondly”.

Dr McFadzean is survived by his wife Christina and two children.
