Why have online counselling?

I have been a counsellor since 2014 and I started working solely online in 2017 because I believe online counselling is an effective, accessible, progressive, and convenient mode of counselling.

 

The advantages of online counselling include:

 

  • You can do it from the comfort of your own home or wherever you happen to be

  • There is no travel time 

  • There are no travel or parking costs

  • It is useful if you live in a rural location and/or if you have disability access requirements

  • It may suit you if you would feel more comfortable communicating online rather than face to face

  • You have the option of communicating via the written or spoken word

  • It is handy if you travel or move a lot

I provide online counselling via Zoom - either video call or instant messaging; it's also possible to do via secure e-mail. 

 

If you are interested in giving online counselling a go please just e-mail me and I'll send you some further information.  

NB There are now a lot of counsellors offering online counselling but please be aware that if they offer counselling via SKYPE this is not a secure platform to use.  Counsellors that offer online counselling should also have done specialist training - I have completed an Online Counselling Skills course with OCST - Online Counselling Services & Training - an approved ACTO [Association for Counselling and Therapy Online] training provider.  I am also a Professional Member of ACTO.
