Course Details

During the Covid-19 pandemic, therapists and their clients have found themselves having to meet in unexpected places. Sessions were moved online overnight and we all found ourselves working in ways and in places that were deeply unfamiliar and, at times, challenging. As regulations have been tightened and loosened in response to the crisis, sessions have been moved from shared physical space to cyberspace and back again, in some cases, a number of times. In fact, many therapists have discovered a form of flexibility of which they were previously unaware. Who knew that you could arrange a virtual session to replace one that would previously have always taken place in the therapist’s consulting room? What surprises have presented themselves as we have discovered these possibilities?

Kate Dunn

I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor, supervisor, and consultant/trainer currently working in private practice both online and face-to-face. I am a tutor at the Online Therapy Institute, working with students on the Certified Cyber Therapist course. Whilst working as a counsellor in a university setting, I established an online service and subsequently carried out research into the Online Therapeutic Relationship, supported by Seed Corn Funding from BACP. I have shared ideas resulting from this research in journal articles (including Therapy Today, Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Journal, and TILT magazine) and in the book: "Psychotherapy 2.0: Where Psychotherapy and Technology Meet", Edited by P Weitz, Karnac Books 2014.
