Theravive

First conceived of in Sep 2006 and formally launched in 2007, we are a directory of independent counselors and clinics throughout North America that provide counselling and resources to individuals, couples, and families while upholding strong values. All of the counselors listed on our site have committed to upholding our core values in their practice.  We work with clients to resolve issues so that they can move forward with their lives and not be dependent on counseling for years to come. Clients are encouraged in a safe environment to discover how the presenting issues affect life, learn the important changes needed to be made, and with tools provided by the counselor, begin a new journey towards a brighter future; a more fulfilling life of purpose, meaning, and greater joy.

Coacheye

Jacob from Coacheye contacted me recently to announce that they had………

“recently launched Coacheye – an online platform for coaches and their clients. We are a Danish based company, which is why coacheye.dk currently has most coaches signed up. However we live in the UK with coacheye.co.uk as well and have just opened up coacheye.com for the US and Canada (coaches please sign up ;-)). Joining Coacheye is free for all types of users – Coacheye earns a fee off the session rate paid online by the client. We are confident that Coacheye is unique in the present market. Also we believe that the online counseling market will develop towards specialised verticals like Coacheye. One reason being that skilled professionals find the service more trustworthy and dedicated to them if it targets their potential clients only. We are considering psychotherapy as the next ‘vertical’ to launch the Coacheye concept in”.

Worth a look if you are a coach or contemplating hiring a coach.

Mental Help Net

Mark Dombeck (director at Mental Help Net) contacted me regarding his site. Online since 1995, Mental Help net has thousands of articles on numerous topics in mental health/illness, wellness, life events and lifespan development, divided into topic centers. In addition the site also provides book reviews, daily updated health news, blogs, podcasts, question and answer service and a therapist directory. Managed by clinical psychologists, the site promotes empirically supported therapies while also attempting to cover “the full spectrum of appropriate treatments”. Notable on the site is the “Wise Counsel Podcast” which is an interview series with psychotherapy luminaries (e.g., Irvin Yalom, David Barlow).
