Course Introduction

The world expects services to be available online and demand for online therapy is continuing to grow. As therapists we naturally want to ensure that we are able to connect with our clients in the most effective and ethical way possible.

This online self-study course helps you to navigate the digital therapy environment, to ensure that you are able to offer the same great service online as you do in your face-to-face sessions and to continue developing the therapeutic relationship in that context.

Give yourself access to more clients and free yourself from the limits of geographical location.

The Course Encourages you to Explore all of the Important Aspects of Working Online, Including:

  • The legal implications of online work, making sure you protect your clients (and yourself) by knowing who you are legally able to work with and the requirements needing to be met
  • The technological implications of online work. It doesn’t have to be scary and we cover all of the technological requirements here including connectivity, software and email to ensure you are able to transition seamlessly
  • The online relationship, how to bring the therapeutic relationship into the virtual world including confidentiality and the use of hypnosis online
  • The aspects of online work that we get asked about most including social media, payment and apps

If you are considering working online the importance of this material can’t be stressed enough. This course encourages you to read widely and consider your own ways of working and the implications of the issues raised on your practice.

There are some common situations which can be difficult to navigate without appropriate knowledge, we always work in line with UKCP guidance and this course will help you to ensure you get the very most out of your online work.
