Gained the confidence to stretch my comfort zone in recording live videos and co-hosting online groups

This course has provided me with so much more than what I signed up for. I signed up to strengthened my online practice and what I gained on top of that is the confidence to stretch my comfort zone in recording live videos and co-hosting online groups! Tamara’s gentleness, enthusiasm and passion for online work, nurturing and supportive attitude reflects on the learning space where I felt accepted and encouraged to express my thoughts and experiment with the online medium.

Looking forward to participating in further training

I really appreciated the opportunity to reflect upon my identity as a practitioner, and to gain a working knowledge of what happens when clinical practice and the therapeutic alliance meets the online platform. I'm looking forward to participating in further training with Tamara in the future.

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.

Gained the confidence to stretch my comfort zone in recording live videos and co-hosting online groups

I loved the way the course was structured. Each element linked into the other. There was the weekly Q and A which enabled us to raise questions as we were going along. The course content was provided in manageable chunks and the partner practice which followed allowed me to practice what I was learning. I found I was growing in confidence as the course progressed. Even when I felt out of my depth the Facebook group provided the extra support I needed. Tamara's style of teaching is engaging, interactive and generous. It is hard to pick one element that was better than another because they all fit together to form the whole.

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.

Has enabled me to take my online practice forward beyond what I thought possible

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.

Laura Clifford-Jones  //  Pluralistic Counsellor, Coach & Trainer // LOTTIE 1

The experiential and interactive peer learning, relational risk taking, research, video testing was really helpful, as was Tamara's self-reflexivity.

Learn to Love Online Therapy has been one of the most transforming courses I have ever done

Learn to Love Online Therapy has been one of the most transforming courses I have ever done. It is hugely professional in its presentation, easy to navigate and brilliantly constructed. The mix of learning opportunities from working independently, engaging in Facebook discussions, listening to anonymous client interviews, quizzes, partner practices, reading, videos and group Zoom calls (not an exhaustive list!) has enabled me to learn so much in a short space of time. I am a different therapist because of it and so much more confident with working online than when I first began. I achieved all that I hoped to achieve from this course and so much more. Not only did it allow me to get to grips with, and learn to love working online and all that that entails, it really helped me to review my private practice and gave me tools to grow and develop. Tamra Howell is a wonderfully warm, engaging, encouraging and generous coach throughout and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know her.

Tamara's courses are simple easy to follow and really do help you to use language that is client friendly and means they are able to relate. We all need contacts like Tamara when starting our journey within private practice to support us in having the best possible chance at success with a little less stress.

Increased confidence in my practice

The biggest change I noticed since enrolling on this programme was my increased confidence in my practice. My favourite parts of the programme were The Facebook group, the inspiration from Tamara, the conversations in coffee chats & groups and after peer practices.

Emma Harris //  COUNSELLOR // LOTTIE 3

Tamara gives her all to this programme.

My confidence has grown and I will now be incorporating online work fully into my practice. In fact at the moment I am going to continue solely online.

Incredible commitment to delivery

What is important for others to know about learning with Tamara? Your incredible commitment to delivery the best training you can, and your generosity of spirit in that, and your sharing of wisdom and insight into your own process and journey to professional excellence in this field.

Gabriel Dixon  //  Integrative Psychotherapist // LOTTIE 1

Great course for anyone deciding to change to Online Therapy

This course brought me from "I can't do this" to : "I can do this! Now I can do this well and with confidence and skill. Tamara makes this course so enjoyable and she supports us through the whole process. Great course for anyone deciding to change to Online Therapy. You are 100% down to earth, and your commitment and generosity is a huge part of why this is successful, the peer group relationship too. Your videos were very helpful, showing me how to do all this online work, and modelling it in a very caring and congruent way.

You could not ask for a better guide on this journey

I didn't know how much I had to learn. Hence the confidence started out high and then I got a dose of reality, but I built my way back up and now feel more confident than where I started and this confidence is based in ethics, boundaries, and reality rather than just my training and natural abilities. My website now has a privacy policy, I have a great contract that serves me as well as my clients, I am confident in my internet connection, I have a back up plan for if my internet (or theirs) goes out that is provided for in the contract, I have a script for my discovery call and intake call. But the biggest change is that I feel 100% confident because I am as prepared as I can be and I have created a container and boundaries that are beyond reproach. Tamara is so humble and thorough and helpful and kind you could NOT ask for a better guide on this journey.

I now love online therapy

Never thought I would say this. Therapy in the winter months will never be the same. Not having to go out in the snow? What is important for others to know about learning with Tamara? Organised, supportive, responsive, experienced, available , helpful and thoughtful.

Great course for anyone deciding to change to Online Therapy

As an creator and facilitator of Learn to Love Online Therapy, Tamara is extremely knowledgeable and professional in the way this interactive programme of learning was facilitated. Tamara is a hands on, warm caring instructor who allows participants to work at their own pace and allows space within the course for participants to do this. Her attention to detail and ability to personally interact through FB and email is quite remarkable !

What more could I want?!

Learn to Love Online Therapy has transformed the way I view online therapy and enabled me to work exactly the way I want to. I have finished the course as a real advocate of online therapy, having moved my entire practice online permanently and with plans to relocate at no detriment to my clients. What more could I want?! 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. It's completely changed my practice plans and unlocked freedom, satisfaction and fulfilment in bucket loads!

We all need contacts like Tamara

This course took the fear of the unknown away bit by bit with incredibly detailed documents and instructions, introduction to resources and other experts, and hands-on experience of working online with partner practices and group sessions. I was drawn to LOT because of the experiential aspects of the course. I felt I needed to have the support of a community to hold myself accountable for my learning. I had also seen the meticulous paperwork done by Tamara on her other platform, and felt it would be a fantastic combination to boost my skills and confidence about being an online therapist. I felt that I was being gently guided step by step into the set up. The easy steps of setting up my workplace were very grounding, and then the course ramped up to egg me on to sort out my thoughts on my focus and paperwork. The partner assignments were a good nudge to connect me to someone and the practice really helped gel my theoretical learnings. All very nurturing, so that I never felt out of my depth. The support of the group was possibly the most helpful. I feel that the friendly tone of the group was important, adding to my confidence and belief that I could be an effective online therapist. The bonus is building close support and connection with the other participants in this course, closely nurtured by Tamara! My confidence was gently boosted, and I was never rushed into going any faster than I could manage. And it was fun!

I got so much more than I bargained for - in a good way.

Tamara's Learn to Love Online Therapy offers far more than the title. It's not quite the opposite of "It does what it says on the Tin" because it does deliver on it's title but it also delivers far more. Great value for money, and then some. Tamara is generous with the offerings within the modules and with her time and support. I actually think she must have a clone to be able to have the energy for it all! A variety of ways of learning are included with reading, audio, partner practice and research. Lots of challenge, self reflection and growth and a great way to meet likeminded therapists. Tamara creates a supportive nurturing learning environment, respectful of all and all inclusive. I got so much more than I bargained for - in a good way.

The most amazing network of supportive and encouraging peers

I chose to do the Learn to Love Online Therapy course as I'd done others when the pandemic closed down in-person services, but had a sense that maybe there was "more" that I could learn about working online. And there was!! I chose this course because I was attracted to looking at this topic in more depth, submerging myself in practice, as well as theory. I wanted an opportunity to interact with others and learn alongside them. The structure and content really appealed to me, as it seemed to mirror the process that we'd go through with our clients, from creating a good space for online therapy work, to contracting, being 'in session' and then moving out into the wider world again (networking and marketing). The content was thorough - covering all the essentials and also offering 'more' - which I was able to do either at the time, or to revisit at a later date, if I couldn't work through it all in one go. As someone who likes structure, I liked the way it was put together but also felt able to go back and forth between sections if I needed to. In addition to the excellent and comprehensive content (which was AMAZING), the next most useful aspect of the course for me, was the connection and learning from one another. This has been ongoing since the course finished, providing me with the most amazing network of supportive and encouraging peers.

Robust, professional and fit for purpose!

I had been debating going fully online in my PP business and attended Tamara's free workshop. The experiential element alongside Tamara's engaging, caring and generous training style made me sign up for LTLOT with 3 days to go before it started! The financial investment felt the biggest I'd made since starting my PP but I knew it was what I needed to take my business forward with confidence. There is no doubt that the content of the course is intense and demanding, on one's time and one's commitment. However, be assured that Tamara has left no stone unturned in covering every aspect of what you will need to run an effective online therapy business. She has made sure all the content is robust, professional and fit for purpose and it is also great fun! The connections with other course members through experiential partner practice and group sessions are the unique and most transforming aspect to the course. Tamara is present and committed through all the stages of the course, whether in the group sessions, on the Facebook page or through live training videos. If you are considering an online practice I cannot recommend this course enough, whether alongside other more 'tutored' courses or as stand alone training since it is thorough enough. Experiencing Tamara's skill and reputation with practice paperwork was an invaluable aspect to this course - she covers everything whilst also encouraging self expression and choice in the development of our own practice approaches. The confidence she has given me in creating more complete, legally accurate and professional paperwork has been incredibly worthwhile.

Also the experiential features make this course ideal for building the skills and passion I needed to work online effectively but also with a sense of personal fulfilment.
