The trend in online therapy is picking up in the field of mental health and wellbeing, with increasing online counselling services available.
Despite the growth of online counselling, it is not necessarily the case that theorists have had the opportunity to frame a cohesive understanding of what it means to perform therapy online. This is largely due to limitations of the existing body of research on the topic.
Nevertheless, with more practitioners attempting to offer psychological support via the internet, and more demand for Online Therapy, either due to global circumstances or clients’ personal choice, it is imperative that we understand how the therapeutic relationship develops and is maintained in an online environment.
This workshop will focus on a framework for evaluation, development of the therapeutic alliance and online therapy in practice.
Presenter, Shilpa Sreenath is a Counselling Psychologist in private practice, who works within the foundations of humanistic psychology and person centred practice. The principles of empathy, unconditional positive regard and the pursuit of congruence anchors her as a Therapist. Based on the client's specific needs, she draws from modalities such as ACT and Mindfulness Based Therapy. She enjoys integrating her knowledge of various modalities but always aims at keeping the therapeutic process simple, uncluttered and client-centred.
The workshop will be delivered online via zoom.
