Telephone & Online Counselling Coronavirus
This is a troubling and difficult time for all, which has meant a great deal of change to our lifestyles.
I am following the most up to date official government guidance, which is to engage in social distancing and work from home where possible.
Therefore, at this time I am unable to offer face to face counselling and instead I am offering telephone counselling and video sessions via Zoom or Skype.
I have a great deal of experiencing in working these ways with clients.
I work with clients, UK wide, every week via the telephone or video session.
Some clients have been apprehensive and worried about moving to online counselling, especially those that are not confident using technology.
However, I have helped many people use online video services – even those that did not think they would be able to. When you contact me, we can speak about your preferences.
I am a Counsellor & Registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy).
I offer emotional & mental health support in the form of telephone & video counselling sessions (no face to face at present). My service is UK wide and I work with men, women and couples.
I am also part of a school wellbeing service, offering telephone counselling sessions to staff, in all roles, within the school environment.
There can be many reasons for seeking counselling, such as loss/bereavement, loneliness, feeling anxious, low self-esteem or you may have symptoms of depression. You may have feelings of panic, PTSD, have problems within your marriage/relationship, be suffering domestic abuse, or self-harming.
Your self-image or confidence may be low, you may feel anger, or feel you are being bullied.
Work issues can be difficult, as too can family life. If you have a terminal illness a recent diagnosis/chronic illness then you may have a medley of feelings and need a space to talk.
I can provide you with a space that is professional, safe and free from judgement.
While you take your time to 'unravel' some of the things you are struggling with, I will be alongside you. Together we can explore some of the underlying issues behind these difficulties.
Caring for yourself is a necessity, not a luxury and counselling offers YOU the time each week to look at the things in your life that are preventing you from moving forward.
