September Newsletter

Hello and welcome to the September edition of the Brighton Person-Centred Community news.

The Community will be having both an in person and an online meeting this month. Both will be at the usual time - 9:30 to 12:30 - on Saturday 19th September - see below. Both will continue to happen each month and we are in discussion about whether one happens on a different date.

Also in this newsletter we have information on an opportunity to give support to NHS staff and an opportunity to get involved with a local counsellors organisation (SCAP). If you have anything you'd like to share that you think would be supportive for Community members or want to reach out for something yourself, do consider using this newsletter as a way to do so.

Physical meeting: For full information please see the previous news update, headed Community Meetings - September Update posted on 31st August.

If you want to give advance notice of attending, please contact William at

Got some free time? Want to support NHS staff?

Frontline19 is a portal to match NHS staff in need with online therapy providers who are willing to provide support pro bono. You sign up, say what your credentials are and how many hours a week you feel able to offer.

Ever considered contributing to Sussex Counselling?

SCAP (Sussex Counselling & Psychotherapy) is an organisation which many of you may be members of or be aware of. They provide a directory of counsellors, a magazine and CPD events. They are in need of people to join their committee and also need someone to be Secretary. It could be great for your CV and networking and you might really enjoy it! So do consider if you can give a little time to help SCAP continue the work that we value.

If you can volunteer a little time you will get

  • free membership for a year

  • free attendance at a CPD event if you are helping out there

  • networking with other counsellors

  • experience of working in a team to organise things

  • hours spent working for the group can count towards CPD

You would need to

  • Attend 5 meetings this year (on zoom currently)

  • Possibly help with stuffing the magazine into envelopes three times a year

  • Possibly be a link person for Newly Qualified Counsellors
