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.

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:

We would like to inform and invite all members to this year's conference of VVCEPC in June. Since the conference will be held online and also in English with several international speakers, we really hope to reach an international audience. 

Also, we think that the topic of the conference is of particular relevance to all person-centered and experiential psychotherapists and counselors, since it will underline and explain the effectiveness of the person-centred approach:
