In response to coronavirus I’m now offering online counselling (similar to Skype but we will use Zoom) and also telephone counselling.
Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the necessity of lockdown is important for everyone’s safety and well-being – however as you continue to live in isolation, perhaps separate from family and friends this may feel increasingly challenging for you. It may also amplify worries and concerns you already have, and you may be thinking about counselling, and how to access this in light of the lockdown.
Online counselling and/or telephone counselling can be a really good alternative to face to face sessions.
You may also simply prefer online and/or telephone counselling as there are some clear advantages:
- You can have your counselling within the comfort of your own home
- If you have a disability or find it difficult to leave your home for any reason, counselling is still available for you
- If you move away from Nottingham, you can continue your therapy without interruption
- It saves time and travel to attend your sessions if you have a busy schedule
If you are new to online counselling – it may feel a little daunting at first! If so, please be assured that as an online counsellor I will be here to support you each step of the way with setting up, and ‘attending’ your sessions. I will send you clear information by email to help you with this, and I’m available to answer any questions you may have.
I use Zoom for online video (similar to Skype). For details of how zoom works visit zoom.us
Once you’re all set up, attending your counselling sessions is as easy as clicking a link in an email!
I do offer both online video and telephone counselling and you might like to take some time to think about which one feels most suitable for you. To help you to decide – you’re very welcome to contact me to arrange a free 30 minutes and we can explore this together.
