For a variety of reasons you may prefer to opt for telephone counselling instead of face to face therapy. You may have difficulty travelling or need to stay at home. You might work long or inconvenient hours or simply prefer to choose a counsellor who suits your needs rather than lives close by.
By its very nature telephone counselling can offer a more flexible way of working and because of the anonymity people often feel more comfortable expressing difficult issues or emotions. Some clients like to start with telephone counselling and then - if viable - see me for face to face sessions instead. Others like to continue working on the phone.
I have significant experience in telephone counselling, having spoken with many thousands of clients via this medium throughout the years I have been working as a therapist. I co-deliver regular training seminars to other qualified therapists in effective telephone counselling skills and practice.
Telephone sessions are normally for 50 minutes. However, should you like longer or shorter sessions this can be negotiated.
