This section includes most of the original material from my online therapy and online clinical supervision practice.
After half a decade in private practice as an online therapist, starting at CounsellingResource.com in 2003, I no longer felt able to keep up with the growing demand for online mental health services. The time was right to offer a bigger and better service with shorter waiting lists and more choice, so in 2008, the CounsellingResource.com online counselling service was spun off and expanded into a new service with four independent online practitioners working from MyTherapist.com.
After another 6 years, and having taken an extended sabbatical for a couple of years to create several other sites and services, eventually I closed the MyTherapist.com practice platform in mid-2014.
I’ve retained this material here for reference since over the years many other mental health professionals have been in touch asking about the practice, wondering about getting started in online practice themselves, or hoping to join the group platform directly.
At MyTherapist.com, we have never offered ‘virtual therapy’. We only do real therapy, but we do it online. The difference is more than mere semantics: every practitioner at MyTherapist.com is prepared to engage in a real relationship, providing real counselling, real therapy or real psychology services online
Online therapy or counselling provides a safe and supportive environment in which you will be listened to, understood and accepted — an environment in which you can focus on your own life and on what matters to you.
