Welcome from the President
Welcome to visit the website of the Hong Kong Professional Counselling Association (HKPCA). HKPCA is the most historical and largest organization representing professional counsellors in Hong Kong with over 1,400 listed members and 380 professional members as at July 2022.
Its missions are to gather most professional counsellors to promote the standard of practice of counselling in Hong Kong, to build professional network, to advance researches including the publication of researches in the field of counselling, to establish ethical standards and provide guidance for counselling education in Hong Kong as well as to enhance the understanding and acceptance of counselling and to develop and maintain counselling services for the promotion of mental health in society.
As a developing profession in Hong Kong, the HKPCA Council has to face lots of challenges ahead and we are looking at ways to promote our solidarity and professional development. In recent decade, we are actively working towards becoming more supportive to our members, to expand membership, to provide continuing education opportunities, to promote professional certification and for the endeavor to surge public recognition.
Being the President of HKPCA, I realize that to carry on doing the great work that has been accomplished by my predecessor, I need the support of the Council, all sub-committtees, working groups and our fellow members.
It is our belief that we should have to be proactive in forming alliances with various counselling associations within the region and beyond, and also with different stakeholders. It is essential for the Association to be recognized by the general public as the established organization to facilitate all issues related to counselling. To do this, it is desirable for us to uphold our professional practices and ethical standards.
Let’s work together to promote a nurturing culture for the well-being in our community.
Prof. Chui Yat Hung
