Online counselling is available where we can’t meet face-to-face. Instead, we use a scheduled encrypted video counselling session to conduct sessions. Online counselling can be part of face-to-face individual or couples counselling, or it can be a standard way of conducting counselling.
Who online counselling helps
Online counselling is most useful when there are geographic limitations such as with my clients in other states and other countries. However, it can also help those who find it difficult to initially talk about more personal problems face-to-face.
Why it works
This type of counselling connects people who otherwise don't have access to counselling due to geography, disability or other factors. It also allows people to connect to specialist counsellors trained in the area that you're seeking help for. Online counselling is a little different to face-to-face counselling. It can be more palatable because it allows additional distance, and that’s important for some. This extra distance can give you greater freedom to talk about some of the issues and can preserve your anonymity.
What to expect
When you start online counselling, you can expect that we will talk through some of the difficulties that you are having with your life. You can also expect to get a greater understanding of this situations have occurred, why they keep occurring, and what you can do about them.
If this is of interest, my initial consultation is at no cost and there is no further obligation. Come in, have a chat and work out what you can do from here. I see clients in Richmond and Sunbury.
