With the ongoing current health risks regarding the spread of the Covid19 virus I have stopped ‘face to face’ sessions with all clients for the time being, however, my online counselling will continue as normal.
For those who know little about Online counselling please do read on…
I am pleased to be able to provide you with both telephone and ONLINE sessions for the duration of the pandemic and beyond.
I have been working successfully in an ‘online’ capacity since 2013 when I qualified in ‘online therapy’ and which continues to run alongside my ‘face-to-face’ more traditional therapy.
No doubt it can feel strange to change the way you participate in therapy – but I am happy to give you your first ‘online session’ FREE, in order for you to have a better idea of whether you would like to continue.
I use Hangouts, Duo and Skype and these can be downloaded to all pc’s, laptops, smartphones and apple-phones.
It is necessary to establish some ground rules for online work, in order for your sessions not just to work, but to work well…
You will need a quiet place to talk, free from distractions. You will need to have your time dedicated to you session and still want confidentiality Connecting in a public space, a library for instance is not going to work. Wearing of headphones will improve both confidentiality and the sound quality is better.
It is important to have a good internet connection. Many people are used to using Skype or Hangouts for video chatting and will do so from unsecured connections, but to keep you secure in your online counselling session it is better if you make use of your home hub.
In case of technical difficulties arising during the session, it is important to have an alternative plan. Having a fixed alternative , whether that would be telephone or messaging, ensures your session continues and you are not left stranded.
