You can access counselling online using your home computer, laptop, or mobile phone.
Online counselling therapy works using Hangouts or skype, with or without video, some people prefer to use the chat element of skype and for some the more traditional email.
Using hangouts or skype talk or chat you would access your therapy in real time, very much like traditional counselling but from a place that feels comfortable and safe for you. With email however there is some ‘time’ between emails, and people who access counselling via email, are good at managing their time and responses.
Many people who found online counselling beneficial
had access to technology
felt at ease using online communication
were able to express themselves through text
