A free course on online counselling, produced by The Open University in partnership with BACP, is now available through the OpenLearn platform.

The course, How to do counselling online: A coronavirus primer, was written by OU academics Naomi Moller and Andreas Vossler, together with BACP, in response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. 

It aims to provide a primer on working online as a counsellor or psychotherapist at a time when face-to-face therapy is neither possible nor safe. The course provides advice and guidance on how to offer technology-based counselling safely and effectively.

We hope you find it really useful.
