ACTO CYP Therapists

ACTO CYP Therapists

As with Face to Face therapy there are many specialties within online therapy. You will find them on the ACTO directory. However, because therapy with Children and Young People(CYP) is so specialised and has specific reauirements, we have developed particlar competences and qualifications for working with them. Our therapists have to indicate on the directory if they have been specially trained to work with CYP.

As many school counsellors moved online during 2020 it became clear that some special training was essential.

The reason for extra training
  • Safeguarding online
  • What are the potential risks of working with CYP online
  • Knowing how to adapt creative approaches you use in your F2F work online

ACTO has a director for CYP whom you can email if you have any questions about working with CYP online.
