*A note regarding accreditation of family counselling services:

Section 10A of the Family Law Act allows the development of Accreditation Rules of persons as family counsellors. The purpose of accreditation is to ensure the provision of high quality family counselling services, and to recognise the professionalism of the sector.

At this time there are no accreditation rules for family counsellors. A list of designated family counselling organisations is available on the Attorney-General’s Department website.
