Tools and Resources for Online Counsellors

Rural Wellbeing is happy to share ideas, tools and resources for online counsellors. As a leading service in the field of online counselling we are committed to improving telehealth interventions to the benefit of both mental health professionals and their clients.

Researchers of telehealth argue that, sadly, the psychologists themselves are the main “barriers to telehealth psychology”.  The evidence is that online video counselling serves our clients just as well as face to face counselling.  Yet, too many psychologists hold on to negative perceptions of various aspects of online counselling. e.g. efficacy,  therapeutic alliance, ethics, practical burden.

In light of COVID-19, telehealth psychology is in ever increasing demand for accessible, high-quality psychological care.  

We at Rural Wellbeing want to help boost high quality online psychological services. We invite professionals to learn together, share with us, and benefit from resources and strategies we upload here.
