The Online Therapy Institute is pleased to introduce you to our newest faculty member Kate Dunn, a well-known name in the field and graduate of Kate’s original training company before launching OTI.
Kate is a psychotherapeutic counsellor, supervisor and consultant currently working in private practice, both online and face-to-face. She first trained in online therapy with Kate Anthony at OnlineCounsellors.co.uk in 2008, whilst working as a counsellor in a university wellbeing service. She went on to establish an online provision for the students and subsequently carried out research into the online therapeutic relationship, supported by funding from BACP. She has shared ideas resulting from this research in published journal articles (including Therapy Today, Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Journal and TILT magazine) and in the book: “Psychotherapy 2.0: Where Psychotherapy and Technology Meet”, Edited by P Weitz, Karnac Books 2014. In 2019, she co-authored a paper which explored online group experiences, published in the Journal of Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapies.
She enjoys the challenge of keeping up to date with technological advances and exploring the impact these have on human interaction and throughout society generally, as well as developing their potential within specific therapeutic settings. She is particularly interested in the therapeutic value of writing and has recently been working with online writing groups.
She practices from her home in West Sussex, UK and has worked with clients throughout the world, using a variety of online approaches.
The Online Therapy Institute is pleased again to expand our tutor team during busy times in line with current interest in and necessity of introducing distance methods of practice during the COVID19 pandemic. If you have yet to upskill to meet BACP competencies for working online, please take a moment to look at how we can help you at https://kateanthony.net/online-training/. As the pandemic continues it is likely that distance counselling and psychotherapy will feature in your future, so it is worth getting the learning under your belt now.
