For online counselling sessions, I use a secure, encrypted videoconferencing program called thera-LINK, which was designed specifically for online counselling. Prior to our first session you will receive an email from thera-LINK to register.
In the case of technical difficulties, the phone can be used as a back-up method for a session.
For online sessions, please ensure that you have a good internet connection and that you have adequate privacy.
Online counselling has been proven to be as effective as face-to-face counselling, and offers the convenience of being in one ’s own space and saves time and cost of travel expenses.
Web-based therapy is a brilliant way of making services available to people who may have difficulties in accessing therapy otherwise, because they work full time for example, or because they would feel anxious about coming to a clinic for face-to-face appointments
