History

Kenya Association of Professional Counsellors (KAPC)  started in 1990.

It grew out of a sponsored counsellor training programme and was formed because a specific need of providing professional support for counsellors was identified.

KAPC responded to the demand for all kinds of counselling services. We grew exponentially and now provide the full range of services to promote professional counselling.

Many of our first activities were research projects that focused on providing counselling services and training. We also concentrated upon young people and their particular needs.
