Online therapy sessions provided by Adrian

My name is Adrian Yates I am trained as a therapist and work as a full time self-employed as a professional counsellor/psychotherapist and hypnotherapist. After I passed my diplomas in Hypnotherapy, Counselling & Psychotherapy, I started providing services aimed at supporting people from my online therapy website and off line, with traditional face to face therapy. As my internet service became more popular I stopped providing traditional face to face therapy. I was also at the time providing support and consultations for a local charity for four years, I have also been a consultant to another therapy website. One of the first online therapists Starting with an idea in 2005 and looking into the technology involved I progressed to using volunteers, after completing my first diploma in 2006 I set-up an experimental, free online hypnotherapy service using volunteers, after passing my counselling and psychotherapy study, I started to test online counselling via video to online volunteers for free, until 2007 when I finally started charging for online therapy sessions in 2011, after I was confident it was both ethical and confidential.

Working as an online therapist

I work mainly as a Psycho-dynamic therapist but I use elements of gestalt therapy and CBT, so I have no strict discipline, as such I will use whatever works best for the client. I have now been a full-time therapist in private practice for several years, starting my online therapy business in May 2011, in that time, I have grown into a therapist in my own right, challenging some of the concepts I was taught, such as always charging for a missed session or no shows, over time I tried to develop a way of working that help promote equality and autonomy for the client. I succeeded in establishing a new way of working, I call it the cognizance therapeutic principle, this a is set of values that underpins the way I work as a therapist.   My values and ethics One of the values I follow, states that all therapists must provide a free full consultation to allow any prospective client the time to make a choice based on actual experience, not just a best guess due to what the advert or online website promises. I also believe there is nothing wrong with clients asking questions, or challenging the therapist, that is to be encouraged as it promotes autonomy, it also helps build confidence in a client’s own self-worth. Cognizance Therapy Principle. I believe in creating an equal partnership between therapist and client and follow my cognizance therapeutic principle.  The cognizance therapeutic principle requires that the therapist follows some important requirements, some examples are shown below. more info There is no charge for the first session, sometimes called the initial consultation. No automatic charges for late cancellation or missed appointments. No payments taken in advance and no block bookings required.

I was one of the first therapists to provide an online therapy service.

 I also used the knowledge gained with the help of the volunteers, to find a way of working that seemed to be a good balance between being user friendly and still keeping it as confidential and secure as possible. This testing phase also helped me understand some of the ethical issues around providing an online therapy service, not forgetting the social media implications. Now online therapy is being provided by many therapists online, it is nice to see that the hostility from therapists has subsided. I faced a barrage of hostility from many therapists who disagreed passionately and communicated it aggressively, I am actually thankful for the distressing experience as it taught me an important lesson about the world of therapy and therapists. I am an independent therapist. I live and work in the UK and as such there are no regulations that can stop anyone calling themselves a counsellor or therapist or psychotherapist, as a result a number of organisations formed up that try to set them selves up as an unregulated regulatory body, this in it’s self creates a problem with various organisations that have no legal rights, pursuing empire building and self-interest, even trying to intimated and bully therapists into joining while making as much money as possible. When I started my online therapy service I was personally and professionally attacked by so called therapists from some organisations, who seemed to be all about stopping progress, and yet now they seem to think it is OK to promote it as long as your under their control and pay the required fees. I have no objection to people forming clubs or organisations, some do seem to be very good as organisations go, I would join one if I could find one that interests me, especially if they promote group supervision. In my opinion some therapist organisations seem to constantly try to validate their own existence by insisting on more and more worthless criteria, that makes training as a therapist more and more expensive and time consuming. I will not be apart of this money making fiasco. Hopefully in the future real regulations will be introduced that can curtail this scrabble for power and influence.   Thank you for reading and maybe we will talk sometime in the future.
