I can offer counselling, EMDR and supervision online via video call. This has become an increasingly popular option for a lot of people who are not able to attend in person.
Online counselling offers a range of benefits, flexibility, accessibility and convenience being some of them. It allows you to attend a session from your own home or from anywhere in the world. This can be beneficial if you are travelling, working abroad, are housebound, have restricted availability or if you can’t find a counsellor near you. It can also offer a higher level of privacy and anonymity.
I have been offering online counselling for many years. In recent years, the use of smartphones, tablets and developments in technology, make video calls increasingly popular and remote counselling sessions possible.
Recently with the Coronavirus outbreak, the need to self-isolate and guidelines on social distant, there’s been a growing movement towards online counselling.
It is important that you have access to a quiet, private space where you will not be disturbed or overheard for the duration of our session, this is to protect your confidentiality.
After your session allow some space to do something relaxing before you go back to your day-to-day activities.
You will need a camera and a microphone on a computer, tablet or mobile phone and a reliable wi-fi connection. I also recommend the use of headphones with an integrated microphone for better audio connection and privacy.
Zoom is my preferred platform, it's reliable, free to access, to download and easy to use https://zoom.us .
Free introductory session
I can offer a free half hour introductory session to help you decide if online counselling is for you. We can also check that all the technology is working correctly and ensure that you are happy working in this way.
Payment For online sessions I need to receive payment by bank transfer in advance of each session.
