Sessions During the Covid Pandemic
Global Online Sessions from the Comfort of Your Home
I’m now offering counselling and psychotherapy sessions in my online therapy room. Sessions are 50 minutes and are £45.
Safety, openness, and trust are the backbone of the therapeutic relationship and during the pandemic I don't want to take any risks with the wellbeing of my clients.
I want to avoid putting you in an unpredictable situation when visiting in person, so I made the decision to move fully online and I will be reviewing this in Autumn 2021.
I have been an online therapist since 2011. Although I work with embodied therapies such as sand play, I am also aware of the power of online work. Of course, there are always pros and cons, such as the occasional technological glitch, or not getting the chance to leave your environment, yet the positives often out weight these.
We may view the screen as a barrier at first, yet sometimes we respond in a relaxed way in our sessions because we have a protective screen and can be free and easy in our environment, the therapeutic connection can go quite deep because of this.
During your session I am still able to share analytical work with you, by using the share screen, and sending information sheets online. I am also continuing to offer guided visualisations. It may help for you to wear headphones to deeply relax during these.
This of course may not be the same for everyone, and the pandemic can bring up issues around privacy. Therefore it's beneficial to consider this ahead of time. Maybe you want to take you session in a car, in a private space outside of your home, or on a telephone, which are all options.
When you arrive at the online therapy room, you can knock to enter at your session time. It's easy to connect because it's simply located by entering my private webpage. You have the option to join on any device, such as a smart phone, tablet or computer. It's an encrypted site, and of course your session remains 100% confidential.
