Is online therapy for me?

 

Benefits of online counselling

  • Online counselling therapy can be from your own home at a time that suits you.
     

  • There's no chance you may be seen entering the counsellor’s practice.
     

  • At a place and time that suits you. People have busy lives and travelling to and from a therapist’s place of work can take time and maybe you can't make therapy during the day so it is useful to be able to have that real flexibility.
     

  • If you travel a lot for work or socially, online counselling can provide support regularly no matter where you are. As long as the place you are calling from is confidential, sessions can continue to take place even if you are not at home.

Possible challenges with online/telephone counselling​

  • If you use a hearing aid, you may find telephone therapy challenging. This issue could also occur during video call therapy should the video freeze at any point.

  • If you rely on non-verbal clues 

  • If you don't have a safe, confidential space with which to attend your sessions
