    What is counselling? 

    Counselling (sometimes called ‘therapy’ or ‘psychotherapy’) is a unique, one-to-one relationship between two people who agree to meet privately and regularly (in this case via video call) for a period of time with the aim of restoring emotional well-being to the client. There are many different reasons why a person might seek help through counselling. For some, it comes from a desire to develop a deeper understanding of their ‘interior world’. Others seek help as a result of a more specific experience, such as:

    • International relocation or culture shock
    • Chronic illness or disability
    • Anxiety / stress
    • Relationship difficulties
    • Lack of self awareness
    • Issues of sex and sexuality
    • Lack of life balance
    • Low self esteem
    • Coming to terms with childhood abuse
    • Loneliness
    • Lack of confidence
    • Issues of faith and spirituality

    As a qualified counsellor, I provide a secure, confidential space to explore difficult experiences, feelings and emotions, without being judged. I provide this space exclusively online, via video call, a method which research shows to be equally comparable in client experience and satisfaction as that of face-to-face therapy. (Dr Tim Kendall and Dr David Kessler, The Lancet Study).

    Far from being simply an exercise in seeking and giving advice, good counselling is a much deeper and richer experience. I believe that my clients have the capacity to grow towards their true potential, and that they are the experts on their own lives. I will therefore not give you advice or offer solutions, but will work with you to help you to understand yourself more fully and to find your own inner resources. I am an integrative counsellor. This means that I do not subscribe to a “one size fits all” style of counselling but rather use a holistic approach that best suits the individual needs of each client.

    Life isn’t always plain sailing. In fact, it is often challenging. Recognising that you could benefit from professional counselling/therapy, is not a sign of weakness but of strength, indicating a desire to process, rather than bury, difficulties in order to move towards a healthier and more meaningful life. Counselling via video call is a great way to work and I would love the opportunity to journey with you in this way.

    Counselling by video call

    Life is often full and sometimes complicated. It can be a struggle to get out to attend regular, face-to-face appointments. Or perhaps the anonymity of online counselling appeals to you. Whatever the reason, there are many benefits to counselling via video call. Here are a few:

    • More realistic option for parents with young children struggling to balance life, work, appointments and babysitters
    • Access for people with disabilities or chronic illness, and their carers
    • Access for those who live in remote areas
    • Time saving, comfort and convenience
    • Ideal for those who relocate or travel for work
    • No travel costs to and from sessions
    • Can fit around your life, rather than juggling life to fit around counselling
    • Therapy from anywhere in the world
    • Can provide more of a sense of anonymity for those who would struggle with face-to-face counselling
    • Beneficial for those suffering from social anxiety or agoraphobia
    • Personal preference for this style of counselling
