Online Counselling

Convenient & Comfortable

Online therapy offers numerous benefits that make it an appealing option for those seeking counselling services. With online therapy, you can receive professional support from the comfort of your own home or wherever you feel most at ease. This eliminates the need for travel and allows you to fit therapy into your schedule more easily.

Flexible & Inclusive

Another advantage of online therapy is that it offers greater flexibility in terms of communication methods. You can choose to communicate with me through video conferencing, phone calls, or even email, depending on your preference and comfort level. This can make therapy more accessible and comfortable for those who may have mobility or transportation issues, or who live in remote areas.

Private & Safe

Online therapy also offers greater privacy and anonymity, which can be particularly important for those who may feel uncomfortable sharing personal information in a face-to-face setting. With online therapy, you can receive support in a safe and confidential environment, knowing that your information is secure.

Zoom Sessions

If this is your first time using Zoom, then you will need to download the Zoom installer found here: https://zoom.us/support/download Once downloaded you can familiarise yourself, but don’t worry you don’t actually need to learn anything for our online therapy sessions. You will simply follow a link I send you by email

Check your device has enough charge (or can be plugged in) for the entire 1-hour session

Check the location before the session to see if you have good internet or mobile coverage

Close as many tabs as possible to improve your connection

Consider silencing notifications to reduce distractions during our online therapy sessions

Click on the link I send you (by email) a few minutes before our online therapy session begins. This allows you to enter the “Waiting room” and check your connections, including audio and video

If our connection breaks or is poor, we should try reconnecting. If this fails we can switch to using phones and I will call you (if you agree to this)

Zoom has a lot of support on their website, you may like to check some out, like this one https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362033-Getting-Started-on-Windows-and-Mac

Email Therapy

One big advantage of this method of counselling is you can email at a pace, place and time that suits you. Your emails can be as long or as short as you like.

There is increased anonymity and some people enjoy the experience of expressing themselves this way.

I reply within 2 working days and you are charged for the time I take to consider and respond to your emails. Typically, there is an exchange of 2 email replies per hour. We can discuss in advance your preference for in-depth or shorter replies.

I offer email therapy using ProtonMail. It is free to set up a ProtonMail email address and this will enhance the security of our email exchanges.

If you’re considering online therapy, I offer professional online counselling services using secure video conferencing, phone and email therapy. Contact me to schedule a free consultation and take the first step towards healing and growth.
