How to make the most of your Therapist Profile

Have you completed your Therapist Profile?

You may be aware that the PACFA website has a ‘Find A Therapist’ search engine which allows all PACFA Registrants to display information about their practice.  This is an important marketing tool that helps members of the public identify who you are and what services you offer. This information is available both via the PACFA website and the ARCAP website.

To update your Therapist Profile, log in to the Counselling and Psychotherapy Portal and click on “My Details” in the navigation bar and then on the Therapist Profile tab. You can update your profile at any time. For more information, download the Therapist Profile Instructions.

Below is an example of how the Therapist Profile works.
