I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist Registered with UKCP. I formerly worked in the NHS but now have an online and face-to-face practice. I guess I'm here as proof that old dogs can learn new tricks!
A few years ago, being short of CPD, I signed up for a Diploma in online therapy - and got hooked! I became fascinated by how online work is transforming psychotherapy.
It seems to me that, in order to appreciate the differences (negatives and positives), we would do well to treat it as a different expression of therapy
(just as group or couples work are different expressions).
Now, I'm the "International Director" for ACTO and the lead for online therapy for the European Association for Psychotherapy.
