A new survey by the College of Psychotherapy

13 September 2023

PACFA members will receive an email this week which includes a survey about psychotherapy. The aim of this is to hear from and to support the growing community of PACFA College of Psychotherapy members and PACFA registrants interested in joining the PACFA College of Psychotherapy. All PACFA members who consider themselves to be psychotherapists are encouraged to take the survey, regardless of whether or not they are current members of the College of Psychotherapy.

The survey aims to get a sense of respondents’ training, personal therapy and knowledge about the process of joining the PACFA College of Psychotherapy as we continue to improve our pathways. Feedback received will help the College to understand the needs, focus areas and priorities of PACFA registrants interested in applying for membership to the College of Psychotherapy. The survey is completely anonymous and takes approximately six minutes to complete.
