General Certificate in Online Therapy 2021

Saturday 23rd January 10:00 - Saturday 17th April 14:00


This General Certificate in Online Counselling & Psychotherapy course is intended as an introduction to working online for practitioners working online already, or who are intending to work online, within an existing agency or organisation or on an existing platform such as Dr Julian. It is also appropriate for those acting as line managers or clinical supervisors within an existing agency or organisational setting to gain insight into online working but not for those who supervise independent practitioners in private practice. Most of our students are experienced face-to-face therapists who are developing their own practice to include working on an existing online platform such as Dr Julian or staff or volunteers working within an agency or organisation that is planning or already running an online service. Because each of you will choose our course for your own reasons, our aims and objectives are geared towards helping you fulfil yours. For example, if you're working within an online schools-based service you'll have a very different set of aims and objectives than if you’re already in private practice and wanting to expand your activities to include online working via Dr Julian. You will negotiate your aims and objectives and the focus of your coursework with your tutor at the outset so that we can support you in fulfilling them. For this reason, we have opted for an external examiner rather than a formal external validation, so that we can be more flexible about our students’ learning needs. Successful completion provides 8 credits with 81 notional hours of learning and students are awarded a General Certificate in Online Counselling & Psychotherapy
