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:

  • Online Therapy may offer a gentle exploration so you can see whether it is a form of therapy that can be helpful for you.
  • Online Therapy may allow you to “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?
  • Online Therapy offers a variety of formats, so whatever your circumstances or lifestyle there will be a format that fits into your life and suits 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:

  • Secure and Encrypted forms of Communication - These are different for each kind of online therapy and will be explained as part of the 'Getting Started' process for Online Therapy.
  • Access to transcripts as a permanent record of what has been said (for webchat/Messenger therapy)

  • Online Therapy . Purple Flowers with Sunlight

    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.
