You are cordially invited to attend the 2014 Sussex Counselling and Psychotherapy Annual General Meeting.

The AGM will be followed by: ‘Client Safety, Stabilisation and Self Regulation.’
Matt Ingrams will be speaking about the Polyvagal Theory’s impact on trauma therapy and suggests, giving examples from case material and cutting edge therapeutic models, that parasympathetic processing is the key to success for all client work.  Matt Ingrams is an experienced Counsellor and Supervisor. He is continually inspired by the ongoing development in the understanding of our brains, bodies and nervous systems.

There will be an opportunity to join or to renew your membership, if you have not already done so, if you bring along your documents (proof of membership of BACP/UKCP/etc, insurance and accreditation) for checking.

Tea, coffee and biscuits provided. We look forward to seeing you.

Message From the Chair


As acting Chair of SCAP I am sending you this message as the future of the organisation is at risk.
After a successful year of increased membership, well-attended Seminars and, at members’ request, the re-introduction of the paper Directory, we are facing important decisions at the AGM on Saturday 26th July.  Four significant Committee members are standing down, and their roles will need to be filled if SCAP is to continue.

TREASURER:  role requires some knowledge of banking/ finances

WEBSITE MANAGER: role requires some knowledge of websites (we have a webmaster in addition) and capacity to answer website queries from SCAP members or the public

DEPUTY CHAIR: to assist the Chair in managing the organisation and responding to Committee and Members’ correspondence.

NEWSLETTER LIASON: we will soon have a new Newsletter editor in place and a Committee member is needed to liaise with them.
We need to fill these roles, as well as increase general committee members, to continue to exist.  I hope you will consider supporting this long running organisation.
If you would be able to fill any of these roles, please contact me for an informal conversation as soon as possible. [ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ]
