CaPPP is a networking organisation for counsellors and psychotherapists in private practice in the south west of England.  Being a member of CaPPP enables practitioners to meet others, to share thoughts about their work and to feel connected with people doing similar work.  Private practice can sometimes be a lonely occupation. CaPPP members are able to network via CaPPPchat an email service which enables you to communicate with over 500 CaPPP members, to ask for or share professional information. We organise occasional Community Meet-up meetings and online Open Space meetings to explore shared professional concerns and interests. We offer a programme of continuing professional development workshops which aim to provide stimulating approaches and ideas that can be applied to practice. We also hold an annual gathering which explores a topical theme and is free for members.  As CaPPP is a not-for-profit organisation* the aim is to keep all events at the lowest possible cost.  CaPPP is kept alive by the interaction of its members.  Members are encouraged to:

  • participate in networking events
  • ask for and share relevant professional information and resources
  • suggest speakers or topics for workshops
  • attend workshops and the free member’s Annual Gathering

*CaPPP is constituted as an Unincorporated Association governed by a committee elected by its members at our AGM. CaPPP was formed by a small group of counsellors and psychotherapists in 2001.

The object of the Association is to provide a forum for counsellors and psychotherapists from a range of theoretical disciplines, who are working in private practice in the South West of England, to develop a supportive professional network and to promote their professional development.
