RightCounsellor.com provides Australia’s most accessible and easy-to-use directory of counsellors and pyschotherapists.
Why the Right Counsellor Directory?
RightCounsellor.com is part of an international family of directories serving Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Each of our directories is designed around one aim: to make it easy for an individual user to narrow down lists of candidate practitioners according to the characteristics they might be looking for, such as geographical location, specialisation areas, or other services. There’s no game of filling in forms and hoping for the best, there’s no random shuffling of lists of practitioners (unless you request it), and there are no dead-ends where the combinations of characterists you’ve selected don’t actually return any results.
We hope you’ll give us a try, and we’d be glad to hear from you via the Contact page if you’d like to offer any feedback.
Who We Are
RightCounsellor.com is a service of Mulhauser Consulting, Ltd., a company registered in England no. 4455464. Registered office: 31 High Street, Haverhill, Suffolk CB9 8AD. The company is registered in the United Kingdom as a Data Controller under the Data Protection Act 1998.
Where Our Information Comes From
All practitioner information listed at RightCounsellor.com is either public domain, non-personal information sourced and indexed from other publicly available websites which we believe to be authoritative — much like Google does when setting out to index the entire web — or it is provided to us directly by practitioners themselves through our restricted self-registration system, designed for Australian counsellors and psychotherapists who are members of a recogised professional organisation with an ethical framework and a complaints procedure.
This means that all practitioner information contained within this directory has either been supplied directly by an individual self-registering on the site as a practitioner or has been corroborated by one or more other sites which we believe to be authoritative and which have separately made the information available to the public. However, we have not independently investigated and verified the authenticity of all information contained within the directory, including but not limited to the individual indications of expertise or specialisation attributed to individual therapists. (Please see our sister site in the UK, the RightTherapist.com directory, for a note on guarding your safety.) We strongly recommend that you do independently verify information provided here before making contact with any listed mental health practitioner.

A Note About Copyright
We operate a directory made up solely of 1) facts, 2) maps, and, for some entries, 3) a brief informational note provided by the practitioner. It is our understanding that nobody holds or can legitimately claim any copyright on the facts in this directory, and individual practitioners hold the copyright on any brief informational notes they have provided. Maps are provided by Mapbox from OpenStreetMap data. Therefore, it would be unreasonable for us to claim any copyright whatsoever on any data within this directory.
National and international legal precedents maintain that the facts collected within a directory are not copyrightable but that the organisation and layout specific to a particular directory may be, provided that they are of sufficient originality. RightCounsellor.com asserts that the facts within this directory have been selected, coordinated, or arranged in such a way that the resulting work as a whole constitutes an original work of authorship and is therefore copyright © 2019, with all rights reserved. This applies also to the UK’s legal principle of ‘database right’. This assertion does not apply to any individual item of information within the directory.
