It's good to talk about your concerns with others, or if you don’t have anyone to talk to about the more sensitive issues you could get some online counselling from a professional counsellor or psychotherapist. All my colleagues have had to make the transition from face to face sessions to working online now available more than ever before. It works well. So many clients were doubtful about online work and worried that it would not be the same as face to face work but trying it for the first time found themselves surprised at how much they got out of it.
For those who already suffer with anxiety, depression or other mental health issues these are indeed tough times. Getting support albeit online support will help alleviate the emotional burden these times have forced upon us.
Online therapy overcomes barriers that may otherwise prevent some people from seeking therapy. It is easily accessible either through Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime or Zoom.
Online counselling via webcam/video-calling provides an opportunity to explore any personal difficulty in a confidential and supportive environment. This may include expressing feelings that are painful, which many of us experience at certain times in our live.
When this happens, it can be difficult to stay positive and cope with everyday life. Online counselling gives you the opportunity to access counselling support at a time and in a place, which is convenient to you. Online counselling can provide support for a broad range of personal difficulties, but there are occasions where it would not be considered suitable, for example if you are at serious risk or in crisis. If this applies to you either when initially accessing support, or during ongoing sessions I will offer information on alternative sources of support for you to contact.
What sort of issues can I contact you about?
Online counselling may be able to help with a very wide range of issues however not all types of issues can be resolved through online video-calling counselling and I will advise you if face to face counselling, or some other form of support might be more suitable. Where I consider that online counselling would not be the most suitable means of support, I will make every effort to assist you in a referral to a suitable alternative.
