The Network of the European Associations for Person Centred Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling (NEAPCEPC), called PCE Europe from 2011, aims to achieve and maintain a high standard of training and practice for person-centred and experiential (PCE) psychotherapists and counsellors.
Its main goal is to serve the public through promotion of the person-centred paradigm. It does this by supporting and encouraging scientific study, as well as the improvement of practice in this paradigm, especially in the field of psychotherapy and counselling; and also by engaging in socio-political processes to ensure the continued contribution of the person-centred paradigm in health, social insurance, education and academic contexts.
In order to forward these goals PCE Europe established The European Certificate for Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling (PCE Certificate) for practitioners, trainers and training organizations.
This will help ensure that PCE psychotherapists and counsellors are trained according to PCE Europe standards and embrace the person-centred paradigm. The PCE Certificate will also aid mobility of PCE practitioners and trainers within Europe.
Among the benefits of the PCE Certificate are:
The following is a statement of intent. Organisations will aim to recognise training from other countries where they can. There is no binding or legal requirement to do so:
PCE Europe member organisations agree to mutually recognize the completed training or individual components of training in person-centred psychotherapy or counselling if the conditions for participation in the training and the training itself are recognised as equivalent.’ (Brussels, November 2001)
