Learning Online to Counsel Online. Welcome to our Introductory Course designed for counsellors and other therapists. Much of the work is group-based however students and tutors do not meet face to face during the Course but make relationships online. You will learn how to begin, maintain and end online therapeutic relationships by following a timetable of weekly tasks which introduce you to the “e-counselling room”. The online meetings are at pre-arranged times (see below). Your personal tutor will give you support and feedback throughout. Students present required pieces of work for assessment by the tutors as an online portfolio. Successful students are awarded the General Certificate in Online Counselling Skills. It is anticipated that you will spend 8-10 hours a week on this Course. During weeks 2, 6 and 10, there are whole group meetings held usually on Skype, Zoom or similar. These take place on a Sunday usually in the late afternoon or early evening depending on time zones. Attendance at these meetings is mandatory. We hold two Private Study weeks during the Course, to allow students to catch up with reading. This is a 10-week course of 65 guided learning hours, 80 hours CPD.

Not all training organisations work the same way, whilst we offer a range of distance learning options, we prefer the tutor-led approach. Here is a little more about what to expect when going our General certificate or Diploma courses.

If you are used to working in a particular way it can be hard to imagine if it will adapt to online. We feel confident it can at OLT.
