Counselling from the comfort of your own home.

Most similar to in person counselling as we can see and hear each other via the screen.

Video Call

A scheduled live session where we communicate by typing. Great if you don't want to show your face or voice.

Instant Message

An exchange of weekly therapeutic emails.

Gives you more time to think as we are not meeting in 'real time'.

My Training and Experience

 

Studying a specialist online training course with the Academy for Online Counselling and Psychotherapy has equipped me with the knowledge and experience to work as a counsellor online.

 

Through my experience I notice that people often share their feelings and issues more freely as they feel more comfortable and safe online. This can make our work very powerful and effective. There is also the advantage of not having to travel and being able to have sessions from the comfort of your own home.

I also work freelance for Dr Julian an online counselling service for mental health and wellbeing. If you live outside the UK you can book an appointment with me through their portal by clicking here

What you need:

  • Somewhere private where you will not be disturbed for the duration of the session

  • A computer/laptop/tablet/smartphone

  • Good stable internet connection (if possible use an Ethernet cable)

  • Your device needs have a video camera with sound for the video counselling

  • Your device needs to be easy to type on for instant message counselling

I use a programme called Zoom for my online counselling work. This looks similar to Skype but is much more suitable for confidential therapeutic work as it secure, encrypted and complies with the 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws. Zoom is free to download and use.
