Phone therapy is as relevant as it was 50 years ago. The increased use of this medium during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the revision of professional therapy body guidance, has endorsed the validity and effectiveness of phone therapy.

The book updates, revises and reinvigorates the medium for individual therapists, counselling services and training organisations in a post-lockdown world, where blended therapy is the norm. It includes practical considerations, phone-related theory, personal experience and self-reflection exercises. Contributing counsellor vignettes cover topics such as adapting theoretical modalities and EDI considerations without visual cues. From assessments, contracting and core skills to assumptions, disinhibition and privacy issues, it supports therapists and counselling organisations to embrace the accessibility, flexibility and creativity that therapy by phone provides.

Relevant for experienced and trainee therapists alike, this book provides practitioners with the support and knowledge to confidently use phone therapy in their practice.

Reviews and Endorsements

"This is an excellent resource, providing counselling and psychotherapy practitioners with a comprehensive guide to working safely, ethically, effectively and creatively with clients over the phone. I can’t recommend this resource highly enough to existing phone therapists, and to those who are considering working in this way" _ Caroline Jesper, BACP Head of Professional Standards.

"Sarah’s book is an accessible and detailed read, suitable for both experienced therapists and trainees. I particularly like the way she interviewed therapists from different theoretical orientations. As hybrid ways of working are now a part of many therapists working life, this book feels like an essential read for all." - Rachel Golding, MBACP Snr. Accred. Programme Tutor at The Counselling Foundation.
