Training in online therapy and digital mental health

Previously the lead for digital mental health and CBT at the University of Surrey, and currently Secretary for the DCP Subcommittee for Digital Mental Health, I have co-authored competencies for digital health skills. We are currently translating these into an e-learning package that will be hosted by the British Psychological Society and provided free for all psychological practitioners. Previously a teacher, and now as a psychologist, CBT therapist and trainer, I am skilled at delivering complex ideas and skills in an accessible and engaging way for learners.

"I also wanted to say thank-you for the course and that I really appreciated your teaching style, your in-depth expertise in the subject areas of CBT and Online Work - I have alot to learn.  I also appreciated your flexibility and thoughtfulness."

Latest training I've co-delivered:

British Psychological Society. Developing your digital practice skills: current practice and beyond. Two years after COVID-19 impacted on psychological practice, this webinar explores what digital skills psychologists and psychological practitioners need to work safely and ethically with clients now and in the future

Clinical psychology doctoral courses

I provide workshops on digital mental health to trainee clinical psychologists at the Universities of London (Royal Holoway), UCL and Surrey. This year they have all been delivered remotely online. Please see here for a recent news report. Feedback has been very positive.

"Really interesting teaching and learnt a lot, loved the use of break out rooms" (trainee at UCL)

Training

I offer training to organisations in the following areas:

  • Introduction to CBT: Basic skills
  • CBT for Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Training can be in person or remote. Remote training can be delivered in two formats:

All remote trainings can be recorded for viewing by participants unable to attend live on the day.

Webinar Series: ‘Delivering therapy by video call: Top Tips with Dr Alesia Moulton-Perkins + Guest Panellists

During the start of lockdown during the Covid-19 crisis presented a series of free webinars giving tips on how to deliver psychological therapy safely and effectively by video call. I was joined in each episode by a different panellist who shared their experiences of working psychologically by video call.

Testimonial

"Many thanks for sharing all of this. I found the webinar really useful and enjoyed all of the practical tips that you gave for setting up video calls, thinking about the environment and managing issues that might crop up. I have taken part in a few webinars on video and teletherapy over the last few months and found yours particularly useful. I will be recommending the you tube link to the department" (Helen, participant in webinar 'Delivering Therapy by Video Call: Top Tips').

"I would like to thank you for the training opportunity offered on line yesterday.  It was very well structured and informative. Pace was excellent. As I am an interpreter, with experience of working in a mental health setting on-line, I was especially interested in the Qs and As and discussion afterwards" (Nathalie, participant in webinar on delivering therapy by video call and working with interpreters )

"I’ve watched the webinars 1 + 2 and wanted to say they are superb. You’ve done a fantastic job!!  There is so much in them for practitioners. Many sound delivery processes now available that weren’t around when I started. It’s a goldmine of information for any practitioner. To be able to chat to you and the very approachable panel who are all professionals working in the field is an absolute gift for therapists. I do wish you well, you made the webinar look so effortless when we know there’s a great deal of work involved." (Liz, Scotland, retired forensic psychologist specialising in Tourette's)
