Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia

The Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia is a national peak body for counsellors and psychotherapists and for professional associations in the counselling and psychotherapy field in Australia. Our mission is to represent the profession to communities and government, and to develop the evidence-base relating to the art and practice of counselling and psychotherapy.

PACFA promotes the development of the practice of counselling and psychotherapy, and respects and supports the diversity of approaches within the profession.

The Christian Counsellors Association (CCAA) exists to further the reputation and professional development of Australian counsellors who practice within a framework of Christian values.
