Online Therapy: Accessible and Convenient
Email, Chat and Video Therapy: A choice of platforms, and a choice of formats to suit your preference and lifestyle
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:
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.
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. I use Proton Mail to provide a secure email therapy service.
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. I use VSee for this service.
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. For this service VSee is also used
I'll provide full information about how to download and work with Proton Mail or download and install VSee during the 'Getting Started' process if we decide together that online therapy is a good fit for you and you begin your online therapy sessions with me.
How Much Does It Cost?
I charge £42 per session (or per email exchange). This includes the first session. Each session lasts for 50 minutes.
