Online Counselling

Online Counselling is an important lifeline to those who cannot access face-to face professional therapy.

Research shows that Online Counselling is effective and, at best, deeply transformative.

"In the latest study... the results of the trial of 200 patients in Bristol, London and Warwickshire are comparable to the results seen with face-to-face therapy" Dr David Kessler, The Lancet

I am a professionally trained therapist and I will not take on clients if I feel Online Counselling is not in your best interest. All work follows the Guidelines for Good Practice from the British Association of Counselling and Psychothrapy (BACP).

What is online counselling?

Online Counselling means access via Email, Telephone or Skype. Many counsellors offer Emails but I do not. I do offer Telephone and my preference is for counselling via a Skype video connection. I feel that video leads to a more effective connection between us.
