TALK FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME

What is Phone Counselling?
Ideal if you can't travel or there are not many counsellors in your area to choose from. This option allows you still have counselling remotely but from the comfort of your own home. Unlike online counselling you do not need to have a computer or internet to access remote counselling.
Sessions are held at a scheduled weekly time when we agree I will phone you on your mobile/landline.
Is Phone Counselling Confidential?
As we will not be meeting in a therapy room it is important that we both take responsibility to ensuring we are in a private space where we will not be overheard or disturbed for the during of each phone session.
I use a separate work phone for my counselling work so your number will be secure in a password protected phone which I do not carry with me outside my office.
Is Phone Counselling Safe?
I studied an advanced specialist course in online counselling which included working with audio calls. This knowledge and experience of working without seeing each others facial expressions and body language equips me to offer this method of working in a very safe way.

Things to Consider
