Australian Online Therapy Training (AOTT) provides training to qualified professionals to extend their training beyond standard face-to-face and telephone counselling work with clients around Australia, especially, and beyond to the broader world.

AOTT therapists are a cut above – as they care about clients and the broader community as a whole.

AOTT as an organisation has been in touch with many of our trained online therapists and they have agreed to provide pro-bono disaster relief counselling if you are struggling with the effects of the fire or drought.

Please see the list of accredited therapists to find someone who definitely could help you today if you are distressed as a result of the latest weather or crisis conditions:

Please email practitioners first, as we are not a standard crisis service.

Lifeline 13 1114
Beyond Blue 1300 224 636
Salvo Care Line 1300 363 622
