About Us

Following the immense success of the National Counseling Psychotherapy Conference 2020, we are proud to present the third enhanced edition of NCPC.  With expert insights and new approaches from International and local speakers, the conference will address some key mental health concerns faced by us

This year, our focus is on promoting the overall mental health and emotional well-being of our community as we navigate these uncertain times. At the heart of our agenda is the belief in our strength and resolve -as individuals, families, and communities.

As practitioners and caregivers, we play an integral role in the mental and emotional well-being of those in our care. This two-day, live and interactive event aims at increasing our awareness and knowledge and shows us practical ways in how we can identify, intervene and offer support.

See what our past attendees have to say

The call for mental health professionals is here and now. We need conferences like NCPC to be more cohesive in our voice calling governments and other organisations to support this vital role in keeping the liveware of any economy, that is, the people connected and productive in all aspects of life.

Corporate HR Director

To improve is to know. To know is to listen to the experts. To listen to the experts is to join the conference!

Senior Counsellor

One line struck me in this conference, PAIN - pay attention in the now. The pandemic clearly shifted our focus and even derailed our professional and personal journeys, the first virtual NC&PC conference gave us a venue to realign back to our core purpose as mental health students and professionals - to be of service to others no matter where we are by understanding that we are all in this together now.

Master of Arts in Psychology Student

Good for those with no counselling background. Talks are easy to follow and understand.


Being able to journey with your client in therapy put therapist in a honorable and privilege's position. Be present and trust the process.

Mental Health Counsellor

Awesome awareness and knowledge. Most of us including myself definitely need to take these pit stops from time to time for overall mental well-being. Along the journey of always caring for others, we tend to overlook on our own needs.

Regional Director

The conference was an eye opening event with so much learning.


Well done onlive conference with smooth technicality
