Recent endorsements from OCST students
" I work within a charity that involves seeing men and women face-to-face regarding pregnancy crisis and pregnancy loss. Because of the nature of crisis and loss, it can be difficult for people to seek a face-to-face encounter particularly when intense emotions are often the presenting problem. I valued this training course in all of its aspects; the programme itself which enabled me, step by step, to be able to train as an e- counsellor as well as the variety of appropriate material and the practice with other students in roleplay. I believe this is a well- designed course that enables someone such as myself with little tech. knowledge to be able to feel confident and competent to now use this training within the scope of what I do."
"Nearing the end of my Counselling Psychology training I realised there was a hole in my knowledge regarding working via the internet and an expectation to consider it. The OCST training expertly filled the gap and through experiential learning techniques helped me understand what was involved’ ethically, legally and practice wise, to adapt the skills I had and giving me confidence to practice new ones. I would highly recommend the course for anyone considering becoming an online therapist and cannot imagine how anyone could practice safely or competently without taking a course of this type."
