The ACCC model is a client-centred approach to employment counseling. Based on the ACEC model used in the past by the Federal government as well as the work of Dr. Philip Patsula, ACCC ensures that clients will get exactly what they need at any given point in time.

Counsellors work with each client in a non-judgmental, consistent manner thereby increasing and enhancing the level of customer service.
