Are there any?I could use some counselling from them(there is a reason ,I choose them over the likes of psychologists in this matter),I don;t really care which "yana" are they from but preferably they know some New Age stuffs. ..

Our own Khedrup is a monk. There are many monks on-line.

On a separate topic: Any of us could take robes tomorrow, and that would be very meritorious, but that would not necessarily make us a good counselor. Investigate the reputation.

Lots of monks (and nuns) online.
But, a monk (or nun) online does not a counselor make.

Neither does it preclude being a counselor. In my experience you're pretty good at it yourself. Remember when I wandered into E-Sangha, completely lost and overwhelmed by it all?

I remember Ven. Huifeng and a Tibetan buddhist moderator from Chicago (forgot her name) on e-sangha helping me out when I was a noob. Their knowledge and compassion for teaching is priceless.

Spread the meaning of the Buddha to help from the honest heart on internet and everywhere.

NOTHING MORE.

You can find Western Pure Land nun Ven. Wuling here: http://www.abuddhistperspective.org/

Ven. Heng Sure from City of Ten Thousand Buddhas has a blog: http://paramita.typepad.com/

Ven. Robina Courtin, well known student of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Australian nun, has a blog here: http://www.robinacourtin.com/

These are just a few.

A wise man keeps them secret within.

But a precious gem placed upon it sinks to the depths

I'm sure you can try. Ven. Heng Sure is pretty active, his time might be limited. But it never hurts to try, and could bring great benefit.
