Learn to Love Online Therapy
THE EXPERIENTIAL PROGRAMME
An eight week mentorship and coaching membership with live teaching, peer support, weekly self study modules, review worksheets, Facebook engagement and partner practice.
In Person to Online
When the Covid-19 lockdown came into effect, you may have switched over to Online and Telephone Therapy and 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 may still feel that Telehealth is the poor cousin of In Person Therapy, despite it having gained legitimacy amongst practitioners and clients alike. Perhaps you are dreading more Zoom calls, whilst sitting in the corner of the spare room. Maybe you are itching to get back in the 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 now I love to inspire other practitioners in their discovery of how online therapy can benefit both the therapist and the client.
The reality is that whether we go back to our offices or not, Online and Telephone Therapy are here to stay.
We develop clarity through creating or updating our Online Therapy Contracts,examining the ethical nature of contracting and through personal review. We enterinto discussions with our peers and build a cohesive professional network.
We research the efficacy of online and telephone therapy so that we can becongruent in our practice with clients. We challenge Imposter Syndrome anddefine our Private Practice Vision.
We track our confidence and build it through partner practice, feedback andreview. We create a cohesive and functional peer support group and professionalnetwork.

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.

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 run several Facebook Groups including the Private Practice Support Community and Addiction Therapists Group.
As well as courses and community support, I also offer lawyer reviewed document templates to practitioners in private practice.
This programme is an eight week mentorship and coaching membership with live teaching, peer support, weekly self study modules, review worksheets, Facebook engagement and partner practice.
The time commitment per week is 8-12 hours on average:
4-6 hours self study
2-4 hours partner practice
2-4 hours Facebook group peer support
1-2 hours live teaching
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.

learn to love
Thanks for considering joining us for this next cohort of Learn to Love Online Therapy!
I appreciate that this programme requires financial, psychological and emotional investment. It is a time commitment and requires bravery to engage in the exercises I will set. If you know that working online will improve the quality of your life BUT you just don't love it yet despite trying, then this is the programme for you.
We learn to love online therapy through building our confidence, our clinical mastery and our professional self care.
Thanks for joining me!
