It is not always possible to attend face-to-face sessions with a therapist. Many people prefer to have a phone or online appointment. Perhaps their commitments at home, their geographical situation, mobility issues or anxiety mean that it is difficult to attend an appointment at the therapist’s office. Most clients of phone or online counselling are surprised how easy it is to talk in that context, and how comfortable it can feel. It is a big part of my job to make the session as accessible as possible for you, and to ask the sorts of questions that help you keep exploring the issue.
In practical terms, we would book the appointment time as usual, and then you would contact me at the arranged time by phone or via Skype.
As confidentiality is so important, it would be up to you to ensure that you would not be overheard during the session. Arrange to be in a quiet place, where you will not be interrupted or disturbed for the whole 50 minutes.
If you are not sure whether phone or Skype therapy would be appropriate for you, do contact me and I can help you come to the decision that is best for you.
