Online Counselling Australia


Online counselling in Australia is needed. Sometimes when you need support, there is no time to access it. Lacking the time to travel to and from an appointment may cause you to hesitate seeking support. Online counselling is not the same as sitting in a room together, but in many circumstances, it is a great alternative way to meet.

When might online counselling be useful?

There are many circumstances that may cause you to consider counselling online.

  • If you are living remotely in a small community where privacy is an issue
  • If you are short on time and this is hindering you to seek support
  • If you are physically disabled or too ill to travel

We go through the details of how online counselling works in our first session. Counselling online is not suitable if you are going through crisis or are in danger in any way. If you need immediate support, click this link for emergency supports contact details.

How to prepare for a session online?

We want to resemble a face to face session, so find a private place to speak from. Try to minimise the risk of disturbances. This helps our meeting flow better. Have something for comfort with you. Maybe a cup of tea, a blanket and some tissues. This helps you relax and forget about the technology. Lastly, bring a charger for your electronic device.


Confidentiality is important to feel safe. Follow this link for information about how we maintain confidentiality online.

How can I organise an online counselling session?

Therapy online should not replace any assistance you may already be receiving. However, it can be useful additional support when you need it. If your situation feels very distressing and overwhelming, it may be best to first contact your GP for a face to face referral to a Mental Health Professional in your area.

Before our first session, we set up a 15-min obligation free talk about whether online counselling is suitable for you.

Please note:
Online counselling with me is only available if you are over 18 years old and living in Australia.

Obligation free 15 minute chat

I would love to hear from you. Contact me and I will be in touch soon.
