Strategic Plan


The Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia is a national peak body for psychotherapists and counsellors and for professional associations in the psychotherapy and counselling field in Australia.


Our mission is to advance the health and wellbeing of diverse Australian communities, through development of the practice of psychotherapy and counselling and the capacity and success of our members.


PACFA’s work is underpinned by values:

  • The profession: human rights, equity, justice for and empowerment of the communities we serve
  • Members: client focus, self-awareness, integrity, competence, valuing and reflecting the diversity of human experience
  • Governance: transparency, accountability, and representation
  • Operations: effectiveness and efficiency


We intend to address our mission in the 2019-2022 period by:

  1. Enhanced the quality of services provided by all members
  2. Expanded access to psychotherapy and counselling services across Australia
  3. Increased resources for PACFA’s mission and judicious use of available resources
