Members of the Australian Counselling Association are required to uphold high ethical, moral and practice standards. These standards are outlined in the ACA Member Application, ACA Code of Ethics and ACA Constitution, and are overseen by the ACA Complaints Committee and ACA Board.
As an industry, Counselling sets a very high ethical standard and has a low prevalence of breach, thus representing an extremely low risk to the public. There are however instances where breaches of the high standards set by ACA occur. In these instances, the individuals found to have breached standards, are transparently listed on the ACA Member De-registration list. The intent of this process is to inform the public of the breach as an additional safety net.
