During the Diploma, Course Members integrate their online counselling knowledge and skills with practice. They will be working as online counsellors receiving clients for counselling and in line with UK counselling practice requirements, they will receive group supervision for their client work during the time the Diploma is running. At the same time, they will explore, research and discuss the challenges which face online counsellors who work with a global client base, considering ethical, legal and health issues from a world perspective as well as considering the different ways the internet may be used for online counselling and therapy. During the taught part of the course, there are weekly discussion meetings using Skype or similar meeting platforms which are held on Wednesday mornings 9.0 – 10.30 am.
