How does online counselling work?
Online counselling, also known as remote therapy, video therapy or digital therapy, essentially refers to counselling that is provided over the internet, via your mobile phone, lap top or tablet. The process of delivering the therapeutic treatment remains the same, except that you don’t need to go anywhere to attend a physical location in person.
Is online counselling effective?
Based on client feedback and my professional assessment of working this way over several years, I believe online therapy has the same positive outcomes as in-person therapy. However while online counselling offers many benefits, it may not be suitable for everyone, and it might not be the best platform to deliver certain types of therapy techniques.
What’s the difference between online counselling and in-person therapy?
The main difference is that we meet via Zoom, Skype or telephone rather than in person. Otherwise, sessions are carried out with the same commitment and care as an in-person session.
What is integrative counselling?
An integrative counsellor believes there isn't just one therapeutic approach that can help a client in all situations. Instead, they take into account all of who you are and your individual circumstances, and draw on different approaches to help you explore and cope with your problems.
Integrative counselling can help with a range of short and long-term issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, sexuality, identity, bereavement and low self-esteem.
What therapeutic principles do you base your counselling approach on?
The core approach to my work is based on Humanistic Person Centred and Psychodynamic principles and on elements from Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - CBT, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Sensorimotor and the principles of Life Coaching.
