Blog Post Showcase: Email Counselling Series. By Chloe Foster.


Hello everyone, and welcome to this ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.


Today I’d like to share a series that Chloe Foster has written about email counselling.

As you can probably tell, email counselling requires a different set of skills, as we are not live with the client in a session.

It is usually asynchronous, and is sent at any point via the client, and the response comes when the therapist has agreed to take time and write back to the client.

The boundaries are different and there are things that happen, such as the disinhibition effect, as well as misunderstandings due to the written nature of the messages, without body language or tone of voice.

In spite of these, email counselling is an important offering that more and more therapists are embracing, with great benefits to their clients.

There are also other platforms like betterhelp and instahelp (I work with them and it’s been great so far!) that provide asyncrhronous and synchronous messaging, as well as audio and video sessions.

Here are the links to Chloe’s series, and here’s also one of mine, where I discuss the variety of online counselling.

Part 1 – What is Email Counselling?

Part 2 – What is the disinhibition effect?

Part 3 – Boundaries in email counselling

Part 4 – Misunderstandings in Email counselling

Blog Post Showcase: Is online counselling second best? . By Chloe Foster.


Hello everyone, and welcome to this ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.


In today’s post, Chloe talks to us about how valuable online counselling can be.

Like Chloe, I believe that online counselling is just as effective as face-to-face counselling, and that it has lots of benefits, which I’ve talked about in my series on online counselling (You can find all of those blogs here).

I’ll let Chloe tell us her experience when working online, and the doors it opens for her practice and her potential and current clients.

Blog Post Showcase: Is Online CPD the future? . By Chloe Foster.


Hello everyone, and welcome to this ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.


Today I’d like to share a series that Chloe Foster has written about online CPD.

We have both been working online with the onlinevents team, providing training on the topics that we’re both passionate about.

It has been a great experience and amazing especially during these difficult times where going to face-to-face conference has been difficult if not impossible.

In her post, Chloe reflects on her experience as a participant of my online workshop on blogging (there’s a new date coming up in October, so if you’d like to join, click here!) there’s also a part 2 for this course, which will help you promote your blogs even further through using images and video on social media. Click here to read more on that one day workshop).

Have a read about her experience, particularly with my workshop, but also her experience of running workshops both privately and with onlinevents.

At the end of the post, Chloe mentions the workshops she runs and how you can join them.

I am so pleased to read this post and Chloe’s experience with writing since completing my workshop, and hope to be posting more of Chloe’s blogs in the near future!

Blog Post Showcase: Tiger! By Kalpna Hirani.


Hello everyone, and welcome to this ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.


In this post, Kalpna discusses the things we might be doing during a crisis or turbo-anxious times as she calls them.

Kalpna gently guides us to what happens when we experience fear or an imminent and present danger.

She talks about how in past times, human reaction to the tiger in front of us had to be quick, in order to survive via fight or flight, or other means.

Now we don’t need that but as we’re the same humans, we are still responding in a similar way, even though the tiger is no longer in front of us about to eat us.

Read Kalpna’s post for tips on what to do when the virtual tiger is in front of you.

Enjoy!
