It is with great joy that I wish the Singapore Association for Counselling happy 40th birthday.


It has been an honor to serve as part of the community that established professional standards for counsellors and the training of counsellors.

Going forward it is important that we remain diligent in developing our profession. Our families, communities, and society will continue to need effective care for mental, emotional, and relational challenges that they face.

If you have not already taken the steps, I would like to encourage each of you to work towards being both a registered counsellor and a registered clinical supervisor.

Thank you to SAC’s executive committee, as well as each individual subcommittee. With each of your dedicated service, I am confident that the coming years will see continued growth and wholeness.

May hope, strength and blessing be with each of you!

Mr David Blakely

SAC President (2004-2012)
