Clinton saw a need for a high-quality directory of counsellors in Australia, whereby Australians could search for mental health support in their local area. Clinton also envisioned a site where counsellors could improve their marketing skills and their clinical skills through online training and professional development. In 2011, he brought his passion for relationships and technology together to create AustraliaCounselling.com.au, which is Australia’s leading counsellor directory. He was the host of the popular Australia Counselling Podcast, where he interviewed local and internationally renowned psychotherapists and counsellors on a range of clinical and practice-building issues. The podcast ended at 100 episodes. It has been downloaded over 100,000 times and is available in the iTunes store or on the Australia Counselling website for practitioners.
