Certified CPD x 7 Hours – Professional Training in Online Counselling & Psychotherapy

Online Therapy has become an increasingly popular choice for therapists and clients, following the introduction to this therapeutic delivery approach during Covid 19. Including Online Therapy as part of your practice, even if you are choosing to return to face to face work in centres, ensures that you have a practice that is versatile to support client needs, now and into the future. The demand for Online Therapy is likely to continue to increase with 90% of Irish people using the internet daily. Although it may not be suited to all therapists or clients, there is considerable evidence supporting the use of online counselling and psychotherapeutic engagement.
