Platform for Recognition

Secularly qualified counsellors in Malaysia are registered under the Board of Counsellors Malaysia which does not recognise Christian counselling. Hence, membership with the NACC does not certify a Christian to set up practice as a professional counsellor.

NACC hopes that by promoting and imparting basic counselling knowledge and skills to the general body of Christ in this nation, many more Christians will be motivated to pursue a tertiary course to qualify academically as a professional counsellor.

Above all, a national association of Christian counsellors can be a platform to voice the interests of those practising Christian counselling, particularly for Government recognition, when we have the membership strength to do so.
