“… having the opportunity to all meet online as a learning group. It felt very natural and undoubtedly the wealth of experience and knowledge created a fantastic learning experience. I appreciated the opportunity to use both video and audio on the workshop.”
” I wanted a mixture of practical reflection on things that would support me in developing further its delivery, plus some reflection on client work issues and theory, research and current debate, I felt I got all that.”
“… sharing enthusiasm for this subject with other, like -minded individuals. The expertise and experiences shared generously by Sally and Jan.”

Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is suited to professionals who have experience of counselling children and young people face to face and who are beginning to counsel this age group online or are planning to do so in the near future.
Prior knowledge or training in the field of online counselling would be beneficial. This workshop will also provide a chance to build a supportive network of professionals with similar interest. It is our experience that members of a group often chose to stay in contact after the workshop has finished.
N.B. This workshop, taken alone, does not provide a qualification to work as an online counsellor with children and young people. The tutors will be offering further courses on issues that require more detailed study than can be covered in this workshop (e.g. safeguarding, mental health issues, contracting, and ethical issues) all relating specifically to counselling CYP online.
- £200 or £175 if paid 4 weeks before the start date.
