About Us

Often asked to recommend a practitioner, it puzzled me that meaningful information relevant to choosing a 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 professionals and the wider community. Today, Good Therapy continues to move forward - albeit slowly and one small step at a time.

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