Hi all, just a wee update on the format of next Saturday's meeting (7th Sept). We'll begin at 1 pm with Susan's workshop to help us map priorities using the Three Horizons model. That will take us to about 3 pm when we'll break for coffee/fresh air/a smoke.
The Coordinating Group meeting will start about 3.20. Let's try to keep it short, though we have the room til 5.30 if we need it.


Also, if anyone is up for a drink/coffee after the meeting that would be a nice end to the day.

Look forward to seeing you there

I am offering up to 6 hours of free supervision as part of my supervision training for any qualified counsellors looking for this. 

At Southside Counselling we are delighted to offer this exciting 2-day course with Hakomi practitioner Diarmid Baillie.

Learn to access deep nourishing connection through interpersonal mindfulness practices, based on the Hakomi method of assisted self-discovery.

‘Loving Presence’ refers to a unique state of being with another person: the nourishing, spacious, nurturing atmosphere within which the spontaneous unfolding and healing of the self is naturally inspired to arise. The capacity to rest in this state with ourselves and others is innate, although usually occluded by other habitual ways of being, thinking and feeling.

Through this powerful series of embodied experiential explorations you may expect to develop in the following ways:
  • Increased capacity to sustain presence with another.
  • Increased sense of connection to self while connected with others.
  • Increased ability to rest in a state of shared connection which nourishes each person.
  • Increased joy, ease and pleasure in professional and personal relationships.
  • Increased ability to sustain your energy while working with others in distress.
  • Increased clarity and insight about how your inner experience is impacted by others.
  • A deepening trust in the value of your unique presence to others, the power of simply being.

20th anniversary of PCE Europe in 2018 and a restart of the network in 2019

In September 2018 "PCE Europe – Network of the European Associations for
Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling" should have
celebrated its 20th birthday, but the date passed unnoticed, there was not a big
party! Only a few months earlier, in July 2018, the General Assembly in Vienna,
failed to elect a new board and it became evident that PCE Europe might not survive
its 20th anniversary. There was no reason to celebrate!

There were various reasons for the apparent apathy and 'burnout'. PCE Europe
started in Luxembourg, with 15 partners, and since then has developed into a strong
network of 31 organisations in 15 different countries from many parts of Europe.
Membership extends from the United Kingdom to Cyprus, and from Portugal to
Russia. During the past decade, the biannual meetings of the General Assembly
were combined with a Symposium. During these days person-centred
professionals, from many parts of Europe, gathered to learn from another and
exchange their ideas, but above all everyone enjoyed being in contact and having
fun with like-minded people.

PCE Europe's members were reluctant to accept this undignified end of the
network, without an attempt to reverse their fortunes, and a 'task force' was formed.
The 'task force' was established in September 2018, with the job of providing a
basis for PCE Europe's realignment, making it more attractive to its members and
hopefully leading it into a fruitful future. Eight colleagues from 7 different countries
joined the task force and met regularly on Skype. A person-centred mindset and a
desire for European cooperation unified these people, who were of Austrian, British,
German, Greek, Romanian, Russian, Scottish and Swiss origin. Their task was to
prepare the groundwork for the next General Assembly, which was in Warsaw on
10 May 2019, and create a map for the association's future.

The Warsaw General Assembly was successful and heralded the relaunch of the
European Network. An international Board was elected: Leonore Langner, Austria
(Chair), Allan Turner, UK (Treasurer), Tito Laneiro, Portugal (EAP contact), Mihaela
Bonatiu, Romania (Certificate Coordinator), Gaby Pierre Chami, Switzerland
(Social Media Manager), Dimitris Portokalis, Greece (PR Officer).
The mission statement of PCE Europe was expanded and renewed, to make the
network more tangible and attractive for its members. PCE Europe is seeking to
register as an NGO (as is WAPCEPC), and a working group was established to
determine the best jurisdiction for registration.

We agreed to update, and enhance, the network's connection to WAPCEPC and to
work closely together. The next European Symposium will be in Romania in 2021,
and we hope that the event guidelines, prepared by the 'task force' will assist the
organisers in their work. New ideas were explored, which means that the new Board
have a lot of working on its 'to do list'. There is a new momentum from the new
Board, and they will value a strong network of support people who are ready to step
up and contribute to PCE Europe's development.

Summary written by Simone Anderhub, Leonore Langner, Allan Turner.

Details of Job:
35 hours per week; Band 4 (£25,803 - £30,189).
Providing approximately 20 - 25 appointments per week to people affected by cancer, their families and carers, or those who have experienced a bereavement.
