Whilst talking to friends and family can be really helpful, it can also be a relief to talk to someone who is 'outside' of your life, who can support you objectively with whatever you have going on at the time. The relationship between therapist and client is crucial and needs to be one of trust.
It's vital that you find a counsellor that feels like a good fit to you.
I offer individuals Face-to-Face Counselling sessions during the evenings and during the day on week days in my comfortable counselling room in SE6 South East London.
My counselling room is centrally located between Catford, Forest Hill & Sydenham - and is easily accessed from other locations in South East London such as Beckenham, Hither Green, Honor Oak & Penge. My location is well served by public transport and there is ample free car parking space.
Maybe accessing Counselling from the comfort of your own home or even as you travel works better for you? If this is the case for you maybe Online Counselling is a good option for you?
Online Counselling has been proven to be as effective as Face-to-Face counselling* and support is provided on your terms to fit around your life. Whilst you will need basic computer skills to enter into Online Counselling you don’t need to be a technical whizz to make it work for you. I’ve completed specialist online training in order to provide you with Online Counselling. Some feel that Online Counselling provides an even more private space to explore areas that they might find difficult opening up about in person.
Email Counselling: The ability to share what’s on your mind at times that fit around your life. Being able to consider what you write, and my responses, in your own time. You find the act of writing therapeutic. If any or all of these resonate with you Email Counselling could be for you.
Online Chat Counselling: The flexibility of counselling from your home or office or when travelling. Counselling that happens at the same day and time each week so you can plan your week. Counselling in ‘real-time’ helps you feel more connected. If any or all of these appeal to you Online Chat Counselling could be your best option.
I utilise the latest technology for our Online Counselling communication to ensure that our private exchanges remain just that…private.
