Vision, Values and Mission
To champion professional excellence for Christian counsellors whilst serving God, the Church and the wider community.
It is our desire to see Christian counsellors recognised and respected as competent and effective professionals, as they exercise a distinctive Christian presence and voice in the counselling field.
It is our desire to support Christian counsellors as they provide professional help to those who seek a counsellor who respect and support their beliefs and values.
Excellence in Counselling
We are committed to recognised and accredited qualifications, which include practice hours that prepare for clinical excellence and professional competence.
We are committed to maintaining excellence in counselling by requiring annual accreditation which ensures the counsellor is accountable for supervision, ethical guidance and qualified professional development.
Through ongoing professional development, we promote growth in personal self-awareness, education in the latest industry insights, and special counselling competencies, so we can reflect and grow in our counselling skills.
Faith in Practice
We are committed to glorify God, honour Jesus Christ, and to remain flexible and responsive to the Holy Spirit in all that He has called us to be and do.
We are committed to explore and teach the integration of Biblical theology and principles with counselling theory and practice.
We believe that all human beings are made in the image of God and are spiritual beings with a spiritual world and life view. Therefore, we are committed to respecting the spirituality of all in its diverse forms being inclusive, community focussed, and valuing all others as equals.
Our values are the heartbeat of our organisation and form the cornerstone of our vision and mission:
CCAA registers and supports professionally trained Christian counsellors and provides a framework for reinforcing professional accountability. We encourage and promote the professional development of our members through networking, ongoing training and supervision, seminars and conferences. Our mission is achieved specifically by:
