Australia’s leading counselling directory for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists, is excited to announce it is under new ownership and management.

Clinton Power founded The Australia Counselling Directory in 2011 and it has been the leading online directory for finding a mental health professional in Australia.

“The reason I started Australia Counselling is because I am passionate about raising the profile of the counselling and psychotherapy field in Australia and supporting Australian therapists in gaining more visibility with the public”, said Mr Power.

Mr Power said, “I feel proud of all that Australia Counselling has achieved in the last 6 years and I know it has contributed to more people understanding the benefits of therapy and accessing counselling services through the listings of our members.”

In 2016 Mr Power founded a new organisation, the Mind Body Training Institute, with his colleague Ms Juliet Austin. He says he is now focusing his efforts in the delivery of online courses for therapists and wellness practitioners.

The new managers of Australia Counselling are husband and wife team Michael and Lise Robin, who are excited to be taking over the day-to-day running of the directory.

Mr Robin said, “Australia Counselling has a great history and has provided excellent service to Australians seeking mental health information, counsellors and therapists. I saw opportunities for developing the service to bring even more features and benefits for mental health professionals.”

“My forte is improving customer experiences using technologies and process development. I have many years of Customer Operations and Product Marketing Management experience with corporations both in Sydney and the Middle East. Lise is very well experienced in real life counselling of staff and holds a Psychology Degree from UNE. Lise’s most recent position was the Head of HR and Training for Aramex, total staff of over 1800.”

“We see that Australia Counselling will lead all others by adapting to evolving technologies and by providing the most up to date information regarding mental health issues in Australia”, said Mr Robin.

Mr Robin also stated, “Apart from providing a wealth information for individuals, our mission is to provide the best client acquisition service for counsellors and therapists in Australia. We intend to take away the need for Australian mental health professionals to worry about handling their own advertising and marketing.”

The founder, Mr Power, will continue to be associated with Australia Counselling through a consulting and advisory position.
