PCE Europe started as the Network of European Associations for Person Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling (NEAPCEPC) and was founded in 1998 in the city of Luxembourg on the occasion of the Annual Meeting of the European Person-/Client-Centred Organisations in Luxembourg.

The terms "Person–Centred" and "Experiential" and the concepts and processes they encompass have an extensive, rich and evolving history. The choice of the phrase "Person-Centred and Experiential" is intended to promote continued dialogue and development. The name of the network has been changed to PCE Europe in 2009 at the Szeged meeting for reasons of practicality.

The Statutes and Bylaws, which are the basis for the functioning of PCE Europe were agreed in 1999 at the 2nd General Assembly (GA) in Athens. They were repeatedly changed and completely revised in 2021, when our network became a registered association in Austria (NGO).

PCE Europe contains 31 member organisations throughout Europe and has become a chapter of the World Association for Psychotherapy and Counselling (WAPCEPC)in 2009. 

PCE Europe is a member of EAP (European Association for Psychotherapy) and of EAC (European Association for Counselling).

PCE Europe is a Network defined by Statutes and Bylaws.

The members of PCE Europe are organisations from different countries.
