If you’re thinking of seeing a counsellor for the first time, you may feel worried about sitting opposite a stranger.
Counselling can be daunting, especially when you’re feeling vulnerable.
When getting out of the house is a struggle or meeting new people makes you anxious, face-to-face meetings can feel impossible.
Perhaps, you live far away from the city and don’t have access to a counsellor.
Or maybe you’re unable to get someone to take care of your kids.
Whatever is preventing you from reaching out, online counselling is a flexible alternative.
IS ONLINE COUNSELLING FOR YOU?
You don’t feel comfortable talking face-to-face

HOW DOES ONLINE COUNSELLING WORK?
Much like traditional counselling, Online Counselling is a therapeutic conversation with a professional counsellor.
It’s a space where you can bring up aspects of your life you find troubling.
Through Online Counselling, you can begin to work through thoughts and feelings
that may be getting in the way of you living a happy and productive life.
An online counsellor will listen to you without judgement.
My Online Counselling is a video conference session. We chat using the camera and microphone on our devices, you will need to download the Zoom app. We organise a time that works for you, please be aware that I'm working on AWST time,
Using Zoom is as easy as clicking a link (I send you instructions shortly before the session).
In order to gain the most from the online session, you should find somewhere suitable for doing your sessions from.
This would be preferably a comfortable place, where you can be alone and your need for privacy is respected.
Online counselling can help you with:
Grief and loss
