A free 15 minute initial telephone consultation is useful as it provides an opportunity to find out whether your needs, interests and goals fit with my skillset. This stage also provides the initial clarification about the limits of confidentiality, therapeutic approach, and other terms of professional services.
Face to Face Counselling
Face to face support offers a stronger understanding of your situation as it will develop a deeper therapeutic relationship.
Face to face contact with others can reduce the levels of cortisol (commonly known as the “stress hormone”) in an individual’s nervous system. Human presence and contact contributes to healthy levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine in an individual’s system which can contribute to increased motivation and energy levels.
By attending in person and to a familiar room, clients know they are coming to a safe and familiar place.
Telephone counselling is where you speak with your counsellor and receive your session over the telephone rather than face-to-face in the therapy room. As with face-to-face counselling, your counsellor will offer you space to talk through how you’ve been feeling and support you to identify and make changes should you wish to do so.
A vital part of telephone counselling is that you feel heard and understood by your counsellor and that you understand the process. Some clients feel more comfortable opening up and discussion sensitive issues through the anonymity buffer provided by a phone.
Online Video counselling offers many of the benefits of face-to-face counselling with the added convenience of online therapy. Zoom video chat sessions use a secure platform. Combining visual and audio feedback, conversations can flow more organically through video chat sessions. For clients who are particularly nervous or anxious during face-to-face counselling sessions, online therapy can offer an alternative means of support.
