Technology and the Internet play an ever increasing part in our lives. We conduct many intimate relationships online via social media, we conduct our business online, we share games, videos, photos and now we can engage in the therapeutic and supervisory relationships online too.
Online therapy has been researched and been proved to be just as effective in providing support and relief as the more traditional face-to-face consulting room therapy. It is particular well suited to those individuals who have mobility difficulties, or those who live in rural surroundings and would need to travel some distance to see a therapist or simply those who’s preference is to engage via technology in therapy from the comfort and privacy of their own homes. Whatever your reason, not only do you have a choice about which therapist you see, now you have a choice about how you see that therapist.
I also offer clinical supervision online – at a distance to counsellors and therapists – psychotherapist and creative therapists – drama and art, supporting these practitioners creatively adapting their face-to-face therapy to the online environment.
My online experience has been gained through various means. I was the Clinical Lead for KOOTH.com a young people’s counselling website, and supervised the counsellors working there. I was the external supervisor on the Diploma in Online Therapeutic Supervision for OLT, together with being a trainer on their General Certificate in Online Counselling, I have also presented at UKCP, BACP and OCTIA conferences on working with Children and Young people Online, and was a member of the BACP Expert Reference group which drew up the E-Counselling and Telephone Competencies.
I do not offer email therapy or supervision.
Please contact me if you wish to engage in online therapy or supervsion as it may not be appropriate for all.
