International Therapy Practice

Resources for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists researching international therapy practice, particularly when moving to or working with clients in the United Kingdom and European Union.

Tamara Howell

Welcome! I hope you find some useful resources here! I am a registered and accredited integrative psychotherapist based in London, United Kingdom and Paris, France. I started my first private practice in London in 2010 and have taken it with me, online, in person, hybrid and back to 100% online through several amazing cities including Paris, Tel Aviv, Copenhagen and London.

International Practice is one of my favourite subjects, specifically helping therapists to get set up with documentation and safety procedures, research regulations and provide international therapy ethically and with our own support frameworks in place. I hope this resource will be useful in checking your own policies and providing ideas so you feel secure and prepared for your international practice!


Download this resource, print the checklist and go through it step by step every time you have an international enquiry to check all your bases are covered and procedures in place.

Q & A Section

This is more of a mini course than a Q& A! Here I go through each item on the checklist and answer questions related to safety, privacy, regulations, research and cultural considerations.

Paperwork Templates

For therapists who are looking to move to the United Kingdom or European Union, or work with clients there, I provide lawyer approved paperwork templates at The Doc Shop.

The Practice Pod

Pod is a coaching membership with workshops, Q & A and monthly Office Hours included along with most of my courses and discounted 1:1 consultation. Read more >
