Become an IAC Supporter: For 50 years, 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:

  • Develop counselling 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.
  • Represent Counsellors Internationally. IAC has consultative status with Intergovernmental organisations including United Nations Agencies (e.g. UNESCO, ILO). Counselling needs to be represented at the international decision making level.
  • 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.
