Member-exclusive opportunities

PACFA continues to negotiate exclusive arrangements with key companies and organisations in the mental health industry, as part of our advocacy for recognition of counselling and psychotherapy.  

PACFA also runs a member-only jobs board where organisations looking to engage highly-skilled mental health professionals advertise directly through PACFA.  

Private Health Rebates

PACFA has negotiated recognition of our members with several of Australia's largest private health funds, allowing eligible members to provide rebates to their clients with appropriate cover.

Employee Assistance Programs

10+ Employee Assistance Programmes accept eligible PACFA members as providers, with this number continuing to grow with our continued advocacy.
