Online Counselling

Online counselling and telephone counselling is a little different to face to face, and so to ensure I am offering you my best practice I have undertaken 80 hours of training and hold a Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling. This qualification meets the BACP and ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online) competence framework requirements.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The restrictions and/or periodic lockdowns are important for everyone’s safety and well-being – however, this different way of living – perhaps separated from friends or family – may feel increasingly challenging for you. It may amplify worries and concerns you already have, and you may be thinking about counselling, and how to access this.

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.
