Why Online Therapy?

“It takes courage...to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.” (Marianne Williamson)

So, because it takes courage, it is important that the therapy feels safe. Online therapy can offer this feeling of safety in a number of ways:

  • Online Therapy offers a gentle exploration so you can see whether it is a form of therapy that can be helpful for you.
  • You can “test the waters” with a session or two to find out if that is enough? If You want more? Or if you want face-to-face therapy?
  • Whatever your circumstance or lifestyle online therapy can offer a format that fits both your circumstances and your personality.

    Advantages of Online Therapy

    While face-to-face therapy is often perceived as the only way that therapy can be effective, there is now growing evidence that online therapy can be equally effective.

    With clear benefits for you in mind, the following elements of online therapy are offered:

  • A free initial 30-minute consultation
  • Secure and Encrypted forms of Communication - These are different for each kind of online therapy and will be explained during your free consultation
  • Access to transcripts or emails as a permanent record of what has been said (for email and webchat forms of therapy)

    Forms of Online Therapy Available

    The term online therapy refers to any kind of therapy which happens over the internet. This allows the format of the therapy to be quite varied.

    I offer three kinds:

    Email Therapy: If you feel more comfortable writing about your difficulties, with time to process your thoughts and feelings, need someone to receive acknowledge and respond to your difficulties, and like time to reflect on any responses from your therapist then this may be a good choice for you.

    Online Chat Therapy: may be suitable for you if you prefer a “real-time” conversation. You may be familiar with Chat from Facebook or Skype. In this form of therapy, you have the advantage of being able to receive instant responses from me. This might be more comforting for you than email therapy if you enjoy instant interaction rather than a reflective space.

    Video Therapy: The benefits of this form of therapy is that we can see each other, but you can still attend a session with the flexibility and comfort that you might need or prefer.
