If you or someone you know is dealing with a challenging situation and could benefit from additional support, considering getting started with online counselling services could be a good option. I offer counselling sessions through video chat platforms (Zoom, FaceTime or Skype) or by telephone, and I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to be heard and supported.
Online counselling means you can receive help and support for personal struggles or mental health issues via video or telephone. Online counselling is growing in popularity, because it is convenient, private and can practically be initiated at any time.
Once we've confirmed your session via email, I will send you a secure video link (Zoom) to our meeting. If you booked the initial session through my website, you will receive an automatic email confirmation which includes a Zoom link for our meeting. Simply by clicking the video meeting link, you automatically get access to a safe and comfortable online space for therapy.
This works similar to face-to-face meeting in a counselling room, except that we are in our own space meeting through a screen of our own device.
Many of my clients tell me they chose online counselling/therapy because the distance makes them feel less anxious and more relaxed.
You can engage in counselling/therapy from privacy, comfort, and convenience of your home or wherever you are if you have internet access or a phone. You can engage in counselling/therapy with me even if your job or lifestyle requires you to travel/move around a lot.
Some of my online clients told me that the virtual world makes them open up and share their personal feelings and experiences a little easier, and there are a lot of benefits to the effect of counselling.
Online counselling/therapy can be extremely beneficial to clients who deal with anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem and confidence issues, loss and family relationship problems, such as grieving or divorce. For people who struggle with anxiety especially social anxiety, online counselling/therapy can be an excellent option. If you are dealing with manageable mental health issues, online counselling is an appropriate fit.
In many cases, online therapy provides the same quality of care. Several studies have found that online counselling sessions can be as effective as in-person sessions for many mental health issues. A study published in the Journal of Psychological Disorders found that online counselling/therapy was equally as effective as face-to-face counselling/therapy for major depression, panic disorder, social anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder.
Online therapy can be useful for a variety of situations, but might not be appropriate for people with serious psychiatric illnesses that require close and direct treatment.
Online therapy is also unsuitable for crisis managment. If you are experiencing a severe mental health crisis (such as, suicidal intent, personal tragedy, serious dysregulation from post-traumatic stress, or active self-harm), I would recommend you to see a therapist in-person as it can be difficult for me to intervene or provide direct assistance in the event of a crisis.
Yes, I use end-to-end encrypted platforms when communicating with clients online to ensure your confidentiality protected. I treat your confidentiality seriously, and it is also important that you create a safe and private space where you won’t be overheard. Headphones are often recommended for protecting your privacy.
