Become an IAC Supporter: Since 1966, the International Association for Counselling has been working to develop counselling worldwide. As a result counselling is now offered more widely throughout the world. Counselling improves people’s lives and can make a significant contribution to alleviating world difficulties. Delivering IAC’s aims requires Time, Money and Hard Work. We ask you to help fund this work and would be grateful for your support. By becoming a Supporter your financial contribution will help us to:

  • Advocate: The counselling profession needs a strong and united voice. IAC utilises its consultative status with intergovernmental organisations including United Nations Agencies (e.g. UNESCO, WHO, ILO) to strengthen counselling's position worldwide. We contribute to the high-level healthcare, and education, policy decisions that directly impact you and your clients. 
  • Develop the Counselling profession internationally: In some countries there is no counselling at all. IAC can help to establish counselling structures, (e.g. National Associations or education courses) in those countries.

  • Work with International NGOs: that send people to the world’s problem areas (e.g. to help in the aftermath of terror and refugee catastrophes), in order to increase the role and contribution of counselling.

  • Promote the Recognition of Counselling in your Country: IAC lobbies and influences governments and other International organisations to have counselling better recognised as a profession.

  • Build the Counselling Movement: Counselling changes lives for the better and reduces suffering. Our humanitarian movement advocates for more access to counselling.

All support is gratefully received and can be made by Credit CardInternational Bank Transfer, or TransferWise (IAC has local US ACH or wire transfer numbers), or PayPal. All Payment option details can been seen on THIS PAGE
