Renee McDonald

I'm a second-generation helping professional, and trained and qualified counsellor, psychotherapist, educator, and coach from Australia. I have worked in the therapy industry for 17 years, in private practice for 13 years, and in the online space for over 10 years of that.

I have worked in multiple roles within online therapy education over the past five years. Initially, I worked for Open Colleges in teaching trainee counsellors on the Diploma of Counselling courses. More recently, I have been educating future counsellors as an Academic Educator at the Australian College of Applied Psychology, across the whole gamut of their counselling and psychotherapy courses, in their online and blended delivery teaching unit.

Over three years ago, I commenced training counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers, and psychologists in Australia in online therapy and telehealth service delivery. Last year, due to this demand, my company Australian Online Therapy Training (AOTT), was born. I'm currently busy completing my forthcoming text; Online therapy: Processes, tasks, integration, and energetic holding that I'm looking forward to sharing with everyone when it's released.
