Face to Face via Zoom
As we are living in very unpresented times online counselling is a way forward for many clients.
Online therapy has gained popularity over the past few years and can be beneficial in many ways: It has been proven to be effective within mental health and substance misuse. Research consistently shows that online therapy is as effective as in person therapy.
- Unrestricted by location
- Having fewer visual distractions often encourages focus and concentration
- You may find that you are more comfortable online or that it is easier to talk
- I can provide continuous support even when one of us is travelling
- I can be more flexible with scheduling than I can for my practice in person
The process involves the client writing their problems and concerns in an email, and the counsellor replying with a considered therapeutic response.
Writing down our problems can be an extremely effective way of processing negative emotions. Putting pen to paper or in this case, hand to keyboard, is an ideal way for individuals who do not feel comfortable speaking about their problems out loud.
Because emails can be written at any time and the client is in control of the timing on their side of the contract - they have the freedom to document what is on their mind as it occurs, rather than waiting for several days for a face to face session.
Just knowing there is someone there to receive, acknowledge and respond to your problems without judgement can provide an enormous sense of comfort and support to anyone attempting to overcome a difficult period in their life.
