Reviews and Endorsements

Volume One

‘This book explores the implications of the digital world for talking therapies. It covers both the theoretical and the practical, from the way the internet might challenge and change current practice, to thinking about the legalities and training required to set up as an online practitioner.
The book also covers the exciting new ways in which digital technology is extending our concept of therapy to include new communities, new ways of working, and delivering support. It’s written with a broad audience in mind, so whether you’re just starting to learn about digital technologies, or are a fully immersed “digital native”, this book will have something for you.’
— Jen Hyatt, CEO, Big White Wall Ltd

‘We might expect that psychotherapists and counsellors would be naturally keen on exploring therapeutic encounters in the digital age. After all, are we not explorers, used to walking alongside our clients, intrigued by the topography, flora, and fauna of their idiosyncratic lives? And are we not those who can hear that which cannot (dare not) be spoken – and risking speaking the unspeakable? And are we not at ease with fantasy and phantasy, the reality behind the “real”? Yet the digital world has caught us out – left us behind. Topography has changed; the language is new; fantasy, phantasy, and reality are not what they were. Can it be that the therapists are the ones lost and confused?
New possibilities exist for psychotherapy and counselling to provide therapy, training, and supervision, at the unfolding edge of human consciousness. This book will stimulate many, terrify some – and open the minds of all therapists to the opportunities – and dangers – of therapy in the globalised, digitalised world. Love it or loathe it – we are all affected by it already. So let’s join the dance.’
— Adrian M. Rhodes, Vice-President, European Association for Psychotherapy
