It’s been over 10 years that I made an Avatar for my yahoo profile. Who know that time that making Avatars would explode beyond its boundaries and create its own place in the virtual world as a tool for cybercounselling.10 years later, my Avatar has undergone changes and grew as I grew and finally got incorporated into my professional life. As an emerging cyber counsellor and an established  creative arts therapist , I am always trying to evolve and see how I can keep with the latest trends of reaching my clients. Avatar Therapy or Innovative Avatar Therapy Simulation is the way to go in offering counseling without borders. As an alternate to alter egos, my avatar is a cross between Xena the warrior princess to my nurturing 5 year old daughter. It lets me explore myself as well have special abilities to relate with my clients. I want to learn more and properly get the right training before I call myself an Avatar Therapist but I find it fascinating that the world of creativity and traditional talking therapy can emerge to create some that is nota fantasy anymore-I can touch it,feel it and its mine….For more information:
