"I'm a professional counselor and the founder of Therapion counseling website. I would like to invite you to our special training course in online counseling methods. Watch my greeting
Our course is not like the few other courses out there. Our course is special. First of all, it summarizes pretty much everything that we've learned about online therapy since we launched our service ten years ago, and then, it looks into the future of e-therapy. Second, it is a practical workshop that teaches you how to conduct real counseling sessions over the internet. It is also a great introduction to the international best practices in this exciting field.
I recommend this course to anybody who would like to update his/her knowledge about online counseling. I also recommend this course to all counselors and therapists who would like to join Therapion.
I look forward to working with you!"
