Goals

Dawn

ACCT is a self-regulated competency-based professional association, registering counsellors with the designation of Registered Therapeutic Counsellor/Accredited Counsellor (RTC/AC), Master Therapeutic Counsellor (MTC) and Registered Counselling Supervisor (RCS). ACCT will bring credibility and recognition to the counselling profession for competency-based counsellors and will:

  • Represent members in the creation of a College for the regulation of counselling professionals in BC and Canada-wide
  • Protect the public by promoting a high standard of competency-based counselling
  • Offer quality professional development and excellent support from senior counsellors
  • Operate under the Cooperative Association Act, with full member participation and transparency
  • Work to bring credibility and recognition to the counselling profession for competency-based counsellors
