What to Expect
Online Therapy is very easy and very similar to traditional face to face therapy except it is achieved through laptop, mobile phone or other device. We can have sessions via video so we can both see and hear each other, or audio only using telephone if you would prefer. Evidence shows that online therapy is just as effective as traditional face to face therapy.
Once I receive your enquiry we can discuss through email what you would like to work on and decide a date and time for our first session. This can be done through various software including Skype and WhatsApp. Payment needs to be made 24 hours prior to the session. When the time comes for the session I will send a message to check you are ready and video call you at the agreed time. It may feel a little strange talking to someone on a screen at first but clients report they soon get used to it. Many clients have reported that it has helped them be more open and honest than they could be if in the same room as a therapist, especially if there is shame involved.
It is a good idea to chose a time when you are unlikely to be disturbed so that we don't have any interruptions. Sessions usually last for one hour and often I suggest tasks to try out between session to further the learning from the session.
