Online counselling, which is sometimes called telehealth or e-therapy, is just like face to face counselling only its offered through video conferencing platforms such as Skype or Zoom. E-therapy is an easy and convenient way to access professional psychological support from the privacy of your own home. Just like face to face counselling, e-therapy allows for in-depth therapy in real time via video connection through your computer or device.
Online counselling is particularly well suited to clients whom:
- live in regional and remote communities
- work FIFO or live in multiple communities
- have limited access to transport
- have limited mobility
- maintain a particularly busy schedule
- have exceptional privacy needs
How to get started:
Getting started with an online counselling appointment is easy as it is scheduled in exactly the same way you would book a face to face counselling appointment. Just get in contact to have your questions answered or to schedule an appointment.
System requirements for online counselling:
Currently, I provide online counselling via Zoom or Skype. If you’re not sure which to use, just ask me to explain the differences as they apply to online counselling so you can select the best option for your circumstances. You will need a reliable high-speed internet connection, an email address or Skype account, and a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone with a webcam.
