What Happens If … Creativity and Safety for Online Couples Counselling

Nancy St JohnMarch 26, 2021

9:00am – 12:30pm EST

Virtual Workshop



In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic changed the therapeutic world at the speed of lightning and many people are now seeking online therapy, which is opening new and exciting opportunities for therapists who wish to establish an online practice.

This is especially true for couples therapists. Dr. Ellyn Bader, the founder of the Couples Institute, recently said, “While many couples are in need of support it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find well-trained couples therapists.” 

Join Nancy St John as she discusses the benefits of being an online couples therapist and provides a solid introduction to working with couples online.

This workshop will enhance participants skills so they can begin, or further develop, an online therapy practice. While the topics covered are aimed at working with couples, the information is relevant and directly transferable to working with individuals or families.


Nancy has been a therapist since 2008 and for over 5 years her practice has been working exclusively with couples online. In 2013 Nancy was chosen by Dr. Ellyn Bader to be part of a select team teaching the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy to members of her training course and has been part of The Couples Institute Master Mentor Program.

Nancy is trained in the following models of couples therapy:

– The Bader-Pearson Developmental Model of Couples Therapy
– The Gottman Method
– Imago Relationship Therapy
– Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
– Relational Life Therapy
– Discernment Counselling
