What is Instant Message Counselling?


An exchange of therapeutic messages in a scheduled session time, without having to show your face or voice.  


We will 'talk' through typing for a scheduled 50minutes once a week.

Is Instant Message Counselling Safe?

I have studied an advanced specialist course in online counselling which equips me to offer this method of working in a very safe way. To read more about my online experience and training click here.
