Online Counselling & Psychotherapy
Online counselling and psychotherapy work in much the same way that traditional face-to-face therapy works. The obvious difference is that sessions take place using your computer, tablet or perhaps, your smart phone. I also offer a telephone therapy service for those who don’t have good internet coverage.
Your First Session
During your first session, we will explore the main challenges that you are facing in life. Initially, I’ll be asking you several questions to get an in-depth understanding of where you are at. I’ll ask you a little about your life and we will work together to create a series of goals for our sessions. In future sessions, I’ll speak less and listen more while looking out for how we can help you realise your goals. If you decide to attend for EMDR or Couples Therapy, I’ll employ a more focused approach to our work together.
How Does it Work?
We will use a secure and user-friendly video-conferencing software called Zoom. I can also use Skype if necessary. On booking your appointment, you’ll receive e-mail instructions on how to access the software. I suggest that couples use two separate computers or tablets etc. while ideally being in the same room together.
Video call requirements:
- Comfortable and private space
- Working camera and microphone
- Minimum Internet Speed of 3G network (0.9 Mbps)
- I recommend the use of earphones or headphones to ensure good audio quality
