An Invitation
Independent Practitioners Network

National Gathering

Ringsfield Hall, Beccles, Suffolk

26th to 28th February 2016

A model of accountability based on peer relationship for counsellors, psychotherapists, educators, growth workers and allied practitioners.

The event:
National Gatherings are places to get support, be inspired, meet new people, old friends, make links and maintain them; talk, challenge, engage. This weekend is a chance to find out more about IPN, to get IPN business done and be part of this great network
The Gathering starts with supper at 7.00pm on Friday and closes at 2.00pm on Sunday.

The venue:
The house sleeps up to 50 people. It is said that it is ‘a warm welcoming Victorian country house; attractively presented, standing in 14 acres of varied grounds. The grounds include woodland, meadow, pasture, ponds, gardens, with volley ball court, playing field, campfire circle, and BBQ. We also have quite a number of animals on site.’ Its aim is to ‘foster the spirit of the Child, restoring connections with self, others and the earth.’

The Gathering is FREE. Paid-up participants can claim some travel expenses. To avail yourself of this, please contact

As always, people new to IPN may find that attending a gathering may be a good way to gain a flavour of what the organisation is about and how it runs. You are welcome. If you decide to join the annual administration fee to become a participant in IPN is £35.
