Find the Right Counsellor for You

Q:  you probably want to find someone who is good at assisting you in assembling your very personal puzzle - how can you be sure you've got a well-trained and effective counsellor to work with?  


A:  a counsellor should be a registered member of a professional organization, such as those listed below.  This helps to ensure the counsellor is academically qualified, participates in consistent professional development, and receives regular professional supervision sessions for themselves by a qualified counsellor or psychologist.


PACFA - Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia

ACA - Australian Counselling Association

​QCA - Queensland Counsellors Association

AAFT - Australian Association of Family Therapy

Secondly, listen to your gut feeling.  If it seems like a good fit for you after the first session or two, you probably have the right professional - otherwise try at least one or two others to help find someone who feels like a good fit.  This will help ensure you get results that positively impact your life.
