Online Psychotherapy & Counselling
Whether you are an expat looking for English speaking psychotherapy as you work abroad, or whether you find it hard to travel to a regular therapy appointment, online therapy could be the answer.
How it works
Online psychotherapy via Skype is different to face-to-face. When we are not sitting in the same room it can be more difficult to pick up on non-verbal cues or to feel connected to your therapist. Working online requires a special skill set to ensure your therapy is effective and professional. I am a Certified Cyber Therapist, a qualification from the Online Therapy Institute. This ensures I am able to work competently, safely, and effectively with you using Skype video or audio and on the telephone.
I am a member of ACTO the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online. ACTO promotes, maintains, improves and advances online counselling and ·psychotherapy as a recognised method of therapeutic delivery. I adhere by their professional conduct and code of ethics in all my online therapy work.
Hardware and software
You will need access to a computer with a webcam, a good consistent internet connection, and most importantly, a space where you can be sure you will not be disturbed for the duration of your session. Instead of Skype, you will need to be able to download zoom.us to allow us to have a fully secure meeting space.
