Mission statement

PCE Europe has the following goals:

  • to further co-operation between person-centred and experiential associations, institutions and groups in Europe, especially in the field of psychotherapy and counselling, e.g. through common projects and mutual support
  • to support and facilitate European person-centred and experiential associations, institutions, groups and individuals in their work
  • to promote the person-centred and experiential paradigms and to support and encourage scientific study as well as the improvement of practise in this paradigm, specifically in the field of psychotherapy and counselling
  • to engage in socio-political processes to ensure the continued contribution of the paradigm in health, social insurance, education, academic contexts and other areas of society
  • to have a commitment to support and/or organise European PCE conferences, symposia etc., especially if the WAPCEPC does not hold its conference in Europe in a specific year, and ensure that there is close collaboration between local/national association members organising such conferences and PCE Europe
  • to foster the exchange of research, theory and practice among a variety of language groups through existing journals and other means
  • as a Chapter of WAPCEPC to work together closely with the World Association
  • to work together with the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP) and other key associations
  • to exchange ideas with other psychotherapeutic and counselling orientations and to stimulate co-operation in the field of psychotherapy and counselling


The aim of the Network is to provide a European-wide forum for those professionals in science and practice who 

  • have a commitment to the primary importance of the relationship between client and therapist in psychotherapy and counselling
  • hold as central to the therapeutic endeavor the client's actualising process and phenomenological world 
  • embody in their work those conditions and attitudes conducive to therapeutic movement first postulated by Carl Rogers
  • have a commitment to an understanding of both clients and therapists as persons, who are at the same time individuals and in relationship with others and their diverse environments and cultures
  • have an openness to the development  and elaboration of person-centred and experiential theory in light of current and future practice and research.
