Counselling via Video, Email and Messaging
For clients who prefer to see and hear their counsellor, yet have the freedom to choose where they have their session, I offer video counselling using Bluejeans secure video conferencing. Clients can opt to have their session at home, at work, or even in a quiet outdoor space that they find comfortable. It is important that you are able to find the time and space to talk about your problems without worrying about being interrupted or overheard.
Email counselling is provided through Hushmail, which is guaranteed to be secure enough for the sharing of personal information. Email counselling is ideal for people who are happier working through their issues using the written word. Clients have the option of a 50-minute session of email exchange, or an agreed wordcount for one or more emails that is read and replied to by the counsellor as agreed at the outset. It is ideal for those who like to take time to think about their feelings and relationships, and write about them in their own time without feeling pressurised by a 1:1 situation.
Counselling via Chat and Messaging
For clients who prefer a live conversation using chat or messaging. Chat takes place over a 50-minute session, as it would in face-to-face therapy. If you are interested in using this option, please ask more information. I will be happy to explain more about the platform I use, and how chat and message-based counselling works.
