Welcome to the Counsellors’ and Psychotherapists’ Association of Victoria, also known as CAPAV.

CAPAV is a state-based professional association created to support the development and represent the interests of Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Victoria. CAPAV is also committed to promote the benefits of Counselling and Psychotherapy to the wider community.

CAPAV is a member association of Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA). PACFA, in partnership with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), has established the Australian Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (ARCAP), a unique national register. To become a member of CAPAV is the very first step towards listing on the PACFA Register, and subsequently on ARCAP.
