Learn to Love Online Therapy

THE EXPERIENTIAL PROGRAMME

Welcome

Mentorship, community, and a rigorous partner practice programme form the foundation of this transformative professional experience.

Join this group programme for all the guidance, paperwork and experiential training you need to craft a highly professional and ethical online practice that you LOVE.

This programme is not solitary. 

It is not just theoretical. 

It is experiential. 

Through Partner Practice, you will have an authentic client experience to draw from as you develop and implement your therapeutic skills in the online environment.

We review and assess continuously so we can move beyond competency to develop mastery in our online practice.


The Switch:

In Person to Online

When the Covid-19 lockdown came into effect, you may have realised that although you completed hours and hours of webinars and self study, you were not completely convinced that distance therapy was for you. 


You might still feel that Telehealth is the poor cousin of In Person Therapy, despite it having gained legitimacy amongst practitioners and clients alike. Are you dreading more Zoom calls, staring at the bright screen and squishing yourself into the corner of the spare room? Maybe you are itching to get back in the therapy room with clients even though you wish you could learn to love working online.

I remember that feeling! I moved from London to Paris in 2012 and kept my fledgling practice going from the kitchen of my tiny studio, with glitchy internet and a fridge in the background.


My supervisor gently suggested more training and after an experiential course, I have never looked back. Experiential training is what changed everything for me and that is what inspired me to support other practitioners in their discovery of how online therapy can exponentially benefit both the Therapist and the Client.

Whether we go back to our offices or not, Online and Telephone Therapy are here to stay.


CLARITY 


CONGRUENCE


CONFIDENCE

CLARITY

We develop clarity through creating and editing our Online Therapy Contracts, examining the ethical nature of contracting and through personal review.

CONGRUENCE

We research the efficacy of online and telephone therapy so that we can be congruent in our practice with clients. We challenge Imposter Syndrome and define our Private Practice Vision.

CONFIDENCE

We track our confidence and build it through partner practice, feedback and review. We create a supportive, generous and functional peer group and referral network.

TAMARA HOWELL //

PGDIP, MSC, REG. MBACP (ACCRED.)

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist in Private Practice based at 127 Harley St, London. I have been providing online and telephone therapy for over 10 years and since Covid-19, moved my hybrid practice to 100% online.

I am passionate about supporting my colleagues in discovering the value of their therapeutic skills in the online sphere, encouraging them to expand the edges of their comfort zones in a safe and secure way and truly learn how to enjoy distance therapy.

Thanks for joining me!

What Graduates are saying:

This course has been the most awesome training I have attended.

It was engaging, inspiring, supportive, hugely confidence building, experiential and most of all, a lot of fun. I learnt things I didn’t even know I needed to learn, such as producing live video clips and creating an inviting therapy corner. All questions and concerns were considered with respect and validation.

CherylAnn Stewart  //  Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

This truly is a life changing programme of learning which one would never have imagined possible to create online.

Tamara Howell is extremely professional in the way this interactive live course is delivered. She is a hands on, warm caring instructor who allows participants to work at their own pace and creates space within the course for participants to do this.

Aims & Objectives

I will support you with...

  • Creating an appropriate workspace at home and navigating your chosen online platform
  • Assessing and taking precautions in respect of risk and emergencies
  • Developing practice procedures, policies and your Online Therapy Contract
  • Increasing confidence when you apply therapeutic skills in an online or telephone setting
  • Preparing for situations specific to online and telephone work such as connection issues and interruptions
  • Building a marketing and networking plan to connect with colleagues and craft your Private Practice Vision

This is a fantastic course for any counsellor/psychotherapist who is working online, particularly if you're not enjoying it yet.

Tamara has worked so hard to create a course that's a perfect balance of informative and inspirational. A real sense of community developed among the participants, and Tamara was always on hand to give advice and encouragement.

Laura Simmons  //  Counsellor and Supervisor

This course gave me so much more than I could have thought, and hoped for, as someone who already works online.

I signed up to review my practice and documents, however, Tamara, has given me so much more within this course by sharing her knowledge, expertise, demonstration, being open and honest throughout the course, allowing me to share in confidence with the peer group support, all this has enabled me to take my online practice forward beyond what I thought possible.

Laura Clifford-Jones  //  Pluralistic Counsellor, Coach & Trainer

Curriculum Themes

These supporting themes thread continously throughout the programme. We explore each aspect experientially and thoughtfully, and the result is a shift in outlook, belief and application of our skillset.

We research and experience Online Therapy to explore our beliefs about the efficacy of working online.

Imposter Syndrome

We gently explore contributing factors in order to shift our mindset to trust in our online skillset.

Connection

We practise networking calls with each other for the purposes of support and referral.

Reaching Out

We write our website homepages and directory listings and share with each other for feedback.

Reflection & Review

We critique video demonstrations of session scenarios together and discuss anonymous client accounts.

Private Practice Vision

We define our ideal personal and professional life, and map out our path towards it using a workbook.

Dear Colleague,

Thank you for considering joining me on Learn to Love Online Therapy. 

I appreciate that this programme requires emotional, and financial investment. It is a time commitment. You will need to be intentional and brave to engage in the depth of experiential learning involved.

This is the programme for you if you know that working online will improve the quality of your life BUT you just don't love it yet despite trying and trying on your own.

We learn to love online therapy together through building our confidence, our clinical mastery and our professional self care.

Tamara

More graduate testimonials:

The experiential and interactive peer learning, relational risk taking, research, video testing was really helpful, as was Tamara's self-reflexivity.

Kate Campbell  //  Family, Systemic and Couple Psychotherapist

We were always supported and nothing was too much trouble for Tamara. This was a kind, personal and enriching course - lots of work, and wonderful.

If you want to kick-start your private practice, this course is for you. Worried about which paperwork you need, what to put in your contract and how to be in that important first contact with a client - get all that here and build your confidence now!


Nicola Segrott //  Person-Centred Counsellor
