Online counselling therapy is a way for you to engage in counselling using internet technology such as telephone or webcam video, I use Zoom. You direct your counselling by selecting the method of communication you feel most comfortable with. You choose the time, the place and the pace of your counselling to suit your needs.
I will make every effort to offer a safe and secure environment for your online therapy to protect your conﬁdentiality and secure.
Zoom is a way for you to see me face-to-face from your computer whilst engaging in counselling. I can guide you through setting up your own Zoom account and I would send you logon details for a time that we have previously arranged. Sessions are 50 minutes in length. Being able to see me gives you more of the beneﬁts you get from face-to-face counselling, but with the convenience of online therapy.
An advantage of telephone counselling is that non-verbal communication can be carried in you tone of voice or the pace of speech which can be picked up by your counsellor. A disadvantage of telephone counselling is that you need a private room where you will not be overheard.
