Learn to love Online Therapy

The Experiential Programme

Welcome

Community, mentorship and a supportive partner practice programme form the foundation of this impactful professional experience.

This programme is intensive.
It is experiential.

And it is transformative.

Join us for all the guidance, paperwork and experiential training you need to craft a highly professional, ethical and SUSTAINABLE online practice that you LOVE.


We review and assess continuously so we can move beyond competency to develop mastery in our online practice.


LEARN TO LOVE ONLINE THERAPY COHORT 6 COMING SOON!

The Switch: In Person to Online

When the Covid-19 lockdown came into effect, you may have 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 might still feel that Telehealth is the poor cousin of In Person Therapy, despite it having gained legitimacy amongst practitioners and clients alike. You're dreading more Zoom calls, staring at the bright screen and squishing yourself into the corner of the spare room. Maybe you are itching to get back in the therapy 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 that is what inspired me to support other practitioners in their discovery of how online therapy can exponentially benefit both the Therapist and the Client.

Whether we see our clients in person again or not, Online Therapy is here to stay.

lovely words from lottie grads...

Learn to Love Online Therapy has been one of the most transforming courses I have ever done. It is hugely professional and brilliantly constructed.
Morag Barker
Creative Counsellor

I now love working online and I've found a way to work as a therapist that totally suits me. I didn't know a better way for me to do therapy existed until I did this course.

Elsie Owen
Therapist & Coach
The experiential and interactive peer learning, relational risk taking, research, video testing was really helpful, as was Tamara's self-reflexivity.
Kate Campbell
Psychotherapist

This course gave me so much more than I could have thought. Thanks Tamara, for the most wonderful experience I have had in a course.

Counsellor, Coach & Trainer

Inside Love Online Therapy, we focus on three core values...

CLARITY

CONGRUENCE

CONFIDENCE

CLARITY

We develop clarity through creating and editing our Online Therapy Contracts, examining the ethical nature of contracting and through personal review.

CONGRUENCE

We research the efficacy of online and telephone therapy so that we can be congruent in our practice with clients. We challenge Imposter Syndrome and define our Private Practice Vision.

CONFIDENCE

We track our confidence and build it through partner practice, feedback and review. We create a supportive, generous and functional peer group and referral network.

Lovely words from Lotties

*A Lottie is a name we use for therapists who enrol in this programme and learn to love online therapy!

This is a fantastic course for any counsellor or psychotherapist who is working online, particularly if you're not enjoying it yet.

Laura Simmons

Counsellor and Supervisor

The course is great fun! Tamara is incredibly supportive, patient, generous and extremely knowledgeable.

Sadie Skinner

Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

I loved the way the course was structured. Each element linked into the other. Tamara's style of teaching is engaging, interactive and generous.

Georgie McMinn

Integrative Counsellor

Zoom Fatigue

If you are approaching burnout and feel like looking at a screen exhausts you much more than working in person, I would love to support you in creating a professional support plan. Some of this is about scheduling and setup, but also it's important to understand the technological challenges such as audio delay and the impact that has on trust and fulfilment. 

Learn to Love Online Therapy creates an opportunity for us to consider together which parts of your online experience are energising and engaging for you and which parts need adapting, or even removing. We start from the ground up, crafting an online mindset and building confidence through experience, practice, research and implementation.


The Lottie family has become a participant led community with referrals, networking and inter and intra cohort support calls meaning you have an in built support system waiting for you when you graduate.

Dear Colleague,

Thank you for considering joining me on Learn to Love Online Therapy. 

I appreciate that this programme requires emotional, and financial investment. It is a time commitment. You will need to be intentional and brave to engage in the depth of experiential learning involved.

This is the programme for you if you know that working online will improve the quality of your life BUT you just don't love it yet despite trying and trying on your own.

We learn to love online therapy together through building our confidence, our clinical mastery and our professional self care.
