Currently, there are three chapters in the WAPCEPC. Chapters are: PCE Europe, Australia and Aotearoa-New Zealand Chapter, PC&E North America. Each chapter has its unique history, principles, traditions and features.
The European Network for Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling (PCE-Europe) was founded in 1998 and became a European chapter of the WAPCEPC in July 2009. The Chapter retains its name but is commonly referred to as PCE Europe.
Currently there are more than 30 associations that are the members of the PCE Europe.
The aim of the Network as a Chapter is to provide a forum for the European associations for person-centred and experiential psychotherapy and counselling that are members in WAPCEPC.
PCE Europe has the following goals:
Person-centred therapy has a low profile in Australia and Aotearoa-New Zealand. While Rogerian theory has had a broad and significant influence on therapeutic practice, psychotherapists and counsellors have generally not been inclined to adopt the labels "person-centred" or "client-centred" when describing their practice in professional directories. Psychotherapists and counsellors who do comfortably adopt this designation have had no access to a local professional association with this specific orientation.
Australian members of the WAPCEPC attending the Norwich conference in 2008 decided to seek the formation of an AANZ chapter of the Association. After developmental follow- up the new chapter formally came into effect on January 15, 2010.
