Join as a Student

PACFA offers free membership to students of counselling and psychotherapy.

Read our student pack for more information on membership benefits and insurance for your placement(s). 

As part of your student membership, you will have complimentary membership of one of PACFA's Colleges. Please choose which College membership you would like to join as a student member.

PLEASE NOTE: You will be asked to log in/create an account before you are able to complete the below application form. The application automatically saves so you are able to return to it later if you need to pause.

Once you graduate, if your course meets our Training Standards, you will be eligible for full membership as a Certified Practising (new graduate) member. Being a student member does not automatically guarantee full PACFA membership upon graduation.

Certified Practising (New Graduate) members receive a 25% discount on their first annual membership fee, gaining access to PACFA-exclusive partnerships and the ability to create a profile on our ‘Find a Therapist’ search so that clients can find you easily.
