This project has an immediate start and requires you to be more than just a counsellor. So, if you want to be a part of something big and revolutionise providing psychological services globally, read on!

 

 The impact of the project will be amazing, and we need you to be part of the experience. You will have an opportunity to change the lives of people living abroad who would not normally have access to psychological services.

There is an expectation that all VirtualPsychologist staff make themselves available to meet periodically for skill development, training, team bonding, and to share experiences.
