As a result of decreasing involvement from members, the Association began the process of dissolution on November 2, 2019. There is currently no official organization for Catholic psychotherapists in Canada.
We continue to wish to serve the Church in Canada but will now do so in a less structured manner. It is our especial concern that those seeking counselling services with someone formed in our shared faith will be able to find qualified people. To do so, we suggest:
contacting the family life office of your local diocese and seeking a recommendation(s),
doing the same through your parish community and amongst your family and friends,
contacting the American association (https://www.catholicpsychotherapy.org/) for their recommendations,
considering whether a Christian counsellor, through the Professional Association of Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists (https://www.paccp.ca/) might meet your needs,
Email sent to the Association’s former address (CPAC.APCC@gmail.com) will be forwarded to our final president. As a requirement of the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, he will maintain the archive of the Association’s records for six years. He may be able to suggest therapists in some parts of the country.
