CPD Video - Carefully Managing your Online Presence - Kate Anthony

Kate Anthony 

On Friday 26th October 2012 The Psychologists Protection Society Trust invited Dr Kate Anthony to speak on the topic "Carefully Managing Your Online Presense".  The session was part of the Psychologists Protection Society's 2012 AGM held in Edinburgh.

Dr Kate Anthony is a leading expert on the use of technology in therapy.  She is co-editor and co-author of three textbooks on the subject, as well as numerous articles, chapters and journals. Her doctoral thesis was Developing Counselling and Psychotherapy in the Age of Technology and the Internet. She is co-founder of the Online Therapy Institute. 

This session will look at a range of online resources available to practitioners and how to ensure they are used in a way that doesn't compromise a therapeutic relationship. 

The event proved very popular, with over 250 therapists watching the event live online and in person at the Edinburgh Training & Conference Centre. The video has now been edited and is available to watch online for those who could manage to attend the event online or in person.

Welcome to The Professional Practitioner Portal

PPS Logo"The Professional Practitioner" portal is an online resource dedicated to promoting high standards of professional practice by practitioners in the talking and listening therapy services.  The portal has been created by the Psychologists Protection Society Trust, a defence organisation, run for the benefit of members who are counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists.  The main purpose of The Psychologists Protection Society is to provide members with assistance when complaints are received from clients and other professional protection matters. The Trust however also has a further objective: to help members avoid problems where possible, by providing education and advice to members and to promote high standards of professional practice.  

This portal contains a variety of content, including articles, events, CPD activities, documents from the PPS archives, etc which are available to all members.  We will add new content from time to time so it is worth "bookmarking" this page.  

It is hoped members will find the content thought-provoking and members will be encouraged to think more about areas of their professional practice where problems can arise and whether or not these problems can be avoided.  If you are not a member of The Psychologists Protection Society and would like to join us, please visit to find out more.
