Before I get ahead of myself, let’s look at what online therapy with me is all about?
What is online therapy all about?
Online therapy is similar to conventional therapy but instead of the therapist and the client sitting together in an office, it takes place, well. you guessed it, online. We will use the webcam on your phone or computer to see one another as we talk. So we will still see and hear each other and we can have a proper conversation.
This is very similar to a skype conversation, but instead of using Skype, I use Zoom as it’s more confidential.
So why do I work online, you ask?
I was tired of having people say to me, “I want to go to therapy, but I just don’t have the time”.
Doing therapy ONLINE, makes it suuuper convenient for you in this fast paced world. You can be absolutely anywhere and still get the therapy you need (as long as you have privacy).
Having online therapy is great if you travel a lot or have a crazy busy schedule. You save time by eliminating the time spent getting to a therapist’s office, waiting in the waiting room and driving home in traffic.
Also, and this is quite a big one, you don’t have to worry about bumping into anybody in the waiting room. This ensures a higher level of confidentiality than in-person therapy.
Many of my clients have told me that they feel more relaxed and open, when they are talking to me online fro their own couch.
Let’s face it, the thought of having a therapy session from your own couch with a big old cup of homemade tea, just feels less daunting than going to a therapist’s office.
Another big pro is that couples who live far away from one another are still able to work through relationship difficulties by meeting online with the therapist. We can all meet together online and have a session even if one person lives in a different time-zone.
Yes, finally some support for couples in long-distance relationships!
Now, it must also be mentioned that online therapy isn’t for everyone. It also requires a stable internet connection.
If you are still reading this, then perhaps you’re interested in online therapy? If so, you can go ahead and book a session with me and see if it’s right for you.
I look forward to meeting you
