Online counselling takes place within a secure, encrypted environment to offer you confidentiality and safety. There are a variety of reasons that clients choose to have online counselling sessions. Some of the advantages are:
: Convenience - There is no need to travel, you can carry out the session where you feel comfortable.
: Flexibility - If work patterns are unpredictable, you can still commit to weekly sessions via this platform.
: Anonymity - If you feel uncomfortable to meet face-to-face, having online or telephone sessions may be more comfortable for you
Things to remember:
: You will need a stable internet connection for online sessions
: You need to ensure you can be online or able to be on your telephone at the agreed time
: It's important you find a quiet, confidential space where you can talk freely and will not be overheard or interrupted
: It may be useful to wear earphones
: There is always a chance that there will be a failure in technology or poor signal, however, we will agree beforehand what we will do if there is a glitch
