The Singapore Association for Counselling (SAC) is the professional body representing counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling educators and students in Singapore. SAC has come a long way – from a small group, we have now grown to over 1200 members, with members from both the public and private counselling sectors.
SAC established the Register of Counsellors in March 2003 and the Register of Clinical Supervisors in March 2017. To date, we have more than 370 Registered Counsellors and 100 Registered Clinical Supervisors, and many more working towards registration.
