As a SOUTH COAST of NSW resident, Renee McDonald, along with many other regional members (who’ve completed professional development with AOTT, for in-depth online therapy learning), AOTT learners and trained professionals are uniquely placed to understand, empathise and be compassionate towards members of these unique communities.
Therapists on social media forums are INSISTING on providing pro-bono counselling and support to the general public remotely. Therefore, AOTT, along with many of these therapists, will be taking this grassroots campaign to the media.
As a professional who has extensive experience providing counselling (in the past) to people with crisis support over the phones with Lifeline, and to people after serious grief, loss and traumatic events, Renee McDonald and her company, AOTT, and her colleagues, are well-placed to provide this serious and disaster relief therapeutic support.
AOTT online therapy training is second-to-none in Australia, with many of the learners completing upwards of 60 hours of training and learning, in addition to their therapeutic studies, order to really be compassionate, helpful, and practically assist clients remotely in online or phone-based virtual services.
