Location: online


Why not join us this evening to share our experiences of moving our psychotherapy practice online? Although some models of therapy have been offered online for years, for many psychodynamic and psychoanalytic therapists it’s new.

Are you scanning the literature for help?
This is an opportunity to learn, share and explore some of the dilemmas, difficulties, opportunities and surprises around working online for both clinician and patient with fellow psychotherapists and counsellors.

By the end of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

1. Consider issues around working therapeutically online.
2. Explore some of the issues, dilemmas and opportunities of providing psychotherapy and counselling online.
3. Share a range of experiences of providing psychotherapy and counselling online.
4. Increase your confidence and competence in working without the physical framework of a consulting room.


This workshop will begin with a short introduction followed by talks from the two workshop leaders. There will be small group discussions and a full plenary to draw out shared insights and learning from the workshop.
