About Us

Often asked to recommend a practitioner, it puzzled me that meaningful information relevant to finding a suitable therapist was not readily available to the general public. The benefits of such a resource were compelling, and in December 2003, fate and inspiration spurred me into action: the first step was to create an accessible Directory where Australians could select from a range of search criteria and browse the profiles of accredited counsellors, psychotherapists, and psychologists.

Launched on 15 September 2004, Goodtherapy.com.au was met with enthusiastic support from mental health practitioners and the wider community. In 2005, Good Therapy Australia became a not-for-profit organisation and registered health promotion charity. Today, Good Therapy Australia continues to move forward - albeit slowly and one small step at a time. 

Thank you to all who in the spirit of collaboration and compassion, help to make "good" therapy an evolving reality.
