Professional Indemnity Insurance

    Please attach a certificate of currency for your Professional Indemnity Insurance. Your Professional

    Indemnity must cover the totality of your work as a Psychotherapist or Counsellor.

    Practitioners who are not in private practice need to provide a letter from their employer stating that they are covered by their employer’s professional indemnity policy to practice as a therapist.


    Registrants are required to have completed 10 hours of clinical supervision from 1/7/2011 to 30/6/2012. Supervision Supervision may, for the purpose of this application, take the form of individual or small group meetings (a maximum of six supervisees and a supervisor). It is not the same as administrative or management supervision, nor is it the same as psychotherapy or counselling of the supervisee. PACFA does not accept supervision in dual relationship situations.

    Peer supervision The 10 hours of supervision can be peer supervision only if practitioners have been listed as Clinical Registrants with PACFA or maintained full membership with their member association for at least 5 years. Peer supervision is a formal process where clinicians contract to provide collegial critiquing and enhancement of each other’s clinical work. Colleagues or peers work together for mutual benefit, rotating the roles of supervisor and supervisee. Peer supervision can be undertaken as a dyad or within a small group of no more than 6 members.

    Please note: PACFA does not accept supervision by relatives or partners.
