The Best

For more than a decade, TBHI has been trusted by top organizations to consult with their leadership and train their professionals.

Making It Easy But Keeping It Safe

Registration for the TBHI Therapist Support Group is easy but requires full identification. Imposters and misbehavior are not tolerated.

Not Mental Health Care

Professionals participating are not offered psychotherapy of any type. This group is simply for therapists to connect with like-minded colleagues and share experiences.


Registered guests are free to benefit from existing topics or create their own. Basic rules are enforced to keep the discussion manageable and professional, but otherwise, the sky is the limit.

Registered Therapists from Across the Globe

TBHI has enjoyed international growth for more than a decade. As a first-generation American born to immigrant parents, Dr. Maheu has enjoyed being an international telehealth trainer since 1994. She understands that professionalism and support can be found from many places, in many forms. Everyone identifying as a therapist is invited to register. Proof of claims of being a therapist may be required at the sole discretion of TBHI.

Which language is spoken in the TBHI Telehealth Therapist Support Group?

English is the common language used at TBHI, but many guests speak, write and read more than one language. Guests are encouraged to imbue their communications with a little “joie de vivre!”

Can English-as-a-Second Language Therapists Become Moderators?

Being elevated to a moderator role is based on two factors: 1) successfully graduating from a TBHI BCTP certificate training program and 2) passing an English proficiency exam if English is not one’s native tongue if the use of language becomes an issue. Also, whether one is a native or English-as-a-second language professional, using grammar correction software is always advised when posting.

All participants must have the training to identify as a therapist in their country. With regard to participating in the TBHI Therapist Support Group, a clear set of guidelines is established and visible upon login.
