Online Therapy: Accessible and Convenient
WebChat/Messenger and Video Therapy: A choice of formats to suit your preference and lifestyle
Why Online Therapy?
Online therapy is a relatively recent development in counselling and psychotherapy.
It may be appropriate for you for a number of reasons. Depending on your circumstances:
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 two kinds:
Online Chat Therapy (Messenger 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 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 offer a free 30-minute introductory session which is an opportunity to check if you feel comfortable with me, for me to check that I am able to offer you the help that you need, and also an opportunity in which you can explore any queries or questions you might have about online therapy.
After the introductory session I charge £46 per session and each session lasts for 50 minutes.
