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.
