Introducing the Bristol Psychotherapy Association

The BPA was established in 1977 to foster the development of psychotherapeutic work in Bristol. It is an independent, non profit making membership organisation which promotes the practice, study and teaching of counselling and psychotherapy. It does not itself provide training or accreditiation.

Membership is open to anyone whose work or training involves them in practice, education or training in psychotherapy, counselling or related fields. Visit the membership page to find out how to become a member of BPA.


We are no longer meeting at the Randall Room!

Meetings are currently held in the Apostle Room at Clifton Catholic Cathedral in Pembroke Road, which is accessed via the car park (entrance on Worcester Road - see below). We have use of the car park for the evening - the Apostle Room is at the far right of the car park.  

Meetings are free to members of the BPA, while non-members pay a small charge (£10) at the door. Refreshments are available during the interval, offering an opportunity for informal contact. A bookstall may be provided at some meetings.
