The Australian Counselling Association (ACA) is a National progressive professional peak association of counsellors and psychotherapists with over 11,000 individual members


Proficient Membership: $220 per annum

This is a non-practising level. This level is exclusively for an ACA registered practising counsellor who is taking extended leave and, therefore, wishes to change to a non-practising level. A period no shorter than six months will be granted for proficient members.

As this is a non-practising level, an ACA registered counsellor must formally apply to be moved to this level, prior to returning back to practice, a member must reapply to be returned to their previous level. Proficient counsellors are not required to undergo regular supervision or OPD.

Proficient members must not practice counselling while on this level.


This is a non-full member, non-practicing level open to all ACA members when they retire as counsellors.
