CCI Co-Counselling is short for
- the Co-Counselling method practiced within the CCI (Co-Counselling International) and
- the network of individuals and groups who support each other to get on with life in an emotionally healthy, rational and creative way.
Setup in 1974 by John Heron, Tom and Dency Sargent with Co-Counselling International - Guidelines as founding document.
A more recent, de facto common understanding of how one supports each other can be found in John Heron''s "A definition of CCI" 1996.
Through the years various dialects of CCI Co-Counselling developed, as Co-Counselling International (CCI) is a peer-based support network with nobody 'deciding' what the true 'nature' of co-counselling is about.
