The coronavirus pandemic has meant that we must now get used to a new normal. We are being asked to socially distance from each other and to self-isolate and it is not clear how long this will last for. As a result, you may be feeling anxious, worried, scared, frustrated or just lonely and very sad. But there is still help available even though it is not the face to face counselling you may be more familiar with. We offer online and telephone counselling and there are lots of advantages to having therapy using these options. You can still get the help and support you need from a counsellor, wherever you are.
what we offer...
Telephone counselling works in the same way as face to face counselling, but sessions are carried out over the phone.
Video chat counselling enables you to video chat with your counsellor in real-time with over the Internet. We use the Zoom programme and app to do this.
Email counselling is a form of online counselling that allows you to work with a counsellor by exchanging emails. You write your problems and concerns in an email, and the counsellor replies with a considered therapeutic response. This may help you if you do not feel comfortable talking about your problems.
