Telephone or Video Counselling

I currently offer my clients the opportunity to work with me on-line via Zoom video conferencing or on the telephone.

Remote therapy is not always appropriate for everyone and we will see how well it will meet your needs during the assessment and through out treatment, if your needs change.

If we both agree to proceed remotely, then there are some pointers that will help you get the best from your sessions:-

  • Always ensure you are somewhere that you feel provides a quite, confidential space, free from interruptions.
  • To maximise privacy, I suggest that clients wear earphones for the duration of the call.
  • Approach the session as you would a normal ‘in person’ meeting. For example, you would be dressed and sitting up, not eating or with the TV on.
  • Try and position the camera before the session to check as much of your body is in the frame as possible. This will help me notice your body language as well as what you are telling me with your words.
  • Let me know how the sessions are going and any concerns or problems you are having conducting the therapy with me in this way, so we can address anything early on.
