About the ACP
About the Association of Counselling Psychologists
For over 30 years the ACP has been providing representation, support, and a sense of community for Counselling Psychologists. We are an independent representative body aiming to promote the professional interests of Counselling Psychologists and develop the profession of Counselling Psychology in Australia. We do this by building and maintaining the connections between our colleagues as well as acting on issues of concern raised by our members.
The ACP is a recognised stakeholder in public consultations about mental health care in Australia and meets with key representatives to bring about positive changes in public policy.
By far the most important function we serve is to provide a space for reflection between Counselling Psychologists as a wider group. We do this during our face-to-face meetings with each other at ACP professional development events, but also across the Internet through email networks, Facebook, and via our website.
