28 Aug Online Therapy and Counselling
As a psychotherapist, I have had an increasing demand for psychotherapy online. For one reason or another, many people are finding that online therapy is the therapy of choice or need.
Online therapy is especially valuable for people who:
- are housebound, whether through illness,
- have carer responsibilities,
- or are busy home makers are juggling the increased demands of modern life – work, family life, travel
- are living in rural areas with limited public transport or who would have a long commute to get to my practice
- are travellers for work or pleasure
Online therapy is also the therapy of choice for many, including Generation Y-ers, the internet “natives” who are born into a world that is connected online. So why not get therapy online?
There are many benefits to getting your therapy online.
Convenience – You can log in for your session wherever you can find a quiet space, be that at work, in your hotel room or at home. This is key for people who live in rural areas or in places where transport is limited, where simply logging on from home for a session can be a lifeline.
Continuity – If you travel a lot for work or pleasure, online therapy allows you to maintain the continuity of your weekly therapy sessions without the disruption of lots of breaks.
Time Saved – Time is a precious commodity. By removing the need to travel to your session, you get to “bank” the time and use it for the things that you need to while still having your session.
Choose your therapist – with online therapy you are no longer limited to working with a therapist just because they are close by. So if you are based in rural India you can work with me in my London based practice because you want to. The added advantage is that if you have to relocate for business or personal reasons, you still get to maintain your relationship and work with me.
Getting started with online therapy
To get started with online therapy, you can simply call, text, or email me. Once we agree a session time and day, I will invite you to call me at the time using VSEE, an app that is easily downloaded onto your smartphone, tablet or computer. (VSEE is a more reliable and secure video chat platform than others I have used.) Its a simple as that.
If you have any questions about online therapy, please do call or email me. I will be happy to speak to you.
To get started, you can call me on 020 7300 7243, or click here to email me to schedule an appointment in a safe and confidential setting.
