I am qualified to work remotely in a way that suits you, whether this be via phone, video call or instant messaging. Remote counselling offers the benefits of counselling with the ability to remain within a location that feels for you, whatever the reason.
Remote working is usually via video call, for which I use Zoom. I send you a secure link prior to your appointment so that you can join me online at the agreed time. Meeting links are password protected and have waiting room facility meaning your appointment remains safe and confidential. We can work with or without the camera element, depending on what feels comfortable for you.
I also work via telephone which hasthe benefit of not relying on internet connection and can be even more flexible than video calling.
We can discuss what feels best for you in an initial call, which I offer to all new clients free of charge.
Working remotely: practical matters
Working remotely can offer positives including flexibility of location, no travel time, ease of connection and, with its current prevalence, reduced risk of virus transmission.
It is important to consider the location from which you connect; does it feel safe and secure, can you be overheard and are you likely to be interrupted?
It is also useful to consider how you may feel after an appointment; are you able to prioritise time to process how you are feeling follopwing your appointment?
We can discuss these points and talk about how best to support you at this time.
