Coventry encounter day

BAPCA are pleased to announce their second regional encounter group{jcomments on} on 30th September.

It will be hosted at Coventry again (if you would like us to host one in an area near to you and can suggest a suitable location, please email LJ with your suggestions. They will be glad to look into other locations across the UK). 

The first encounter group was held in February, with a mixure of counsellors, trainees, and people who are person-centered or interested in the approach but who are not working in counselling. We had a mixture of BAPCA members and non-members there, and the day was a delight. Several of us found it very moving to be part of.

Encounter Group of PCE Europe

PCE Europe Logo


Encounter Group of PCE Europe


“In such a group the individual comes to know himself and each of the others more completely

than is possible in the usual social or working relationships.” (Carl R. Rogers, 1969)



Opening up to individual members is the first step of PCE Europe to live up to our name"European Network..." not only at the level of organisations but also at the level of living persons. And of course a core part of our approaches is to encounter each other. Consequently PCE Europewants to create a framework that facilitates contact and exchange between our international colleagues – the “Encounter Group of PCE Europe”.

What is it?

An opportunity for our community to meet. We think of this space as a frame where we can meet as a group and then know each other individually at a deeper level and in a more personal way.


We are aware that our community grows and an encounter group where we can come together and share ourselves, where we can listen, collaborate and create a community is something we want to keep an eye on.


We are thinking of monthly or quarterly online encounters over two hours via Zoom. If theopportunity arises, e.g. during a symposium, face-to-face encounters may also be possible.Let's start and find our way together....

Online Local Group

In a time of COVID-19, making connection seems more important than ever. Speaking for myself, as a person living in a town where I don't know many people, I don't have a wide network of local people to call on, so Zoom has become my lifeline. Literally, in terms of both my salaried job and my private practice, but also in terms of my sanity. My weekly saturday night 'Jay's pub quiz' (on youtube - can highly recommend as a stream through one zoom account with several of you taking part against each other) and my sunday afternoon crafting group full of deep intense conversation, as well as lots of calm silence and general hilarity have brought me through my weekend and kept me going through my week.

As far as work has gone, it's been a case of 'doing the work' really. I haven't had that sense of 'connection' since leaving the town where I started my local local group - for reasons of complexity, I did not manage to join the local group that is running where I have moved to and it has been something I missed. With that in mind, I offered to start an 'online local group' for tPCA and we have now run twice (and probably three times by the time you read this). We have talked about how we feel about moving to online work, the effects of covid on us and on our work, as well as more general and more specific topics relevant to each of us, whose confidentiality I won't break here.

We are an open group, and welcome all with an interest in the person-centered approach. The group meets on the first saturday of every month from 10.30-12.30. We are very flexible about people leaving, so if you can make the first hour but not the second, please also feel free to come along. Just click the link. Or better still, add us to your electronic diary as an event that repeats on the first saturday of the month and click that link:

Participants needed for new online study on love during a time of Covid

Love in the time of COVID


Over the last year, it has become clear that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on life for many people internationally. We don’t yet know how the impact of social distancing guidelines, the stress of the pandemic on relationships will have on people over time. This study aims to look at Love and mattering in a time of Covid.

We are seeking adults living in the UK who are willing to complete a survey and share some of their thoughts in the survey about their perceptions and experiences of the impact of the Covid 19 lockdowns on their romantic or other relationships, they describe as loving relationships. The survey includes questions about mattering, covid related anxiety, compassion, affection, closeness, and commitment in love relationships. There is also an opportunity to briefly free list or describe your thoughts on Love and the impact Covid has had on you and your relationship/s.


To learn more and take part, please visit and the study webpage
