ONLINE CONSULTATIONS

 

Whether you are seeking help for stress, anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement, depression, phobias or lack of self-esteem, online consultations let you access all the same coping mechanisms as you would in an in-person session.

Consultations and therapy can be carried out successfully over the internet, using the Zoom platform, which will work on a laptop, notepad, tablet, iPhone, or Android smartphone, provided that you can arrange to be in a suitable environment where you know that you are not overheard, or disturbed.

The initial online consultation gives the opportunity to trial the process, before committing to future sessions of therapy.

IS ONLINE THERAPY EFFECTIVE?

While online therapy is a much newer form of therapy, current evidence suggests that for many people it can be just as effective as in-person therapy.

Talking from the security of your own home may even make it easier for you to open about your problems. Online therapy also enables you to communicate from anywhere in the world, while avoiding the expense, travel time, and inconvenience of having to meet in-person.

Several studies from around the world, including ones from the US’s North-western University and Germany’s Leipzig University (both in 2014) suggest that online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face work for clients, especially longer-term.

More recent research, published in the Journal of Affective Disorders in March 2020, focused on the differences in quality of interactions between face to face and telephone psychotherapy. It found there was little difference in terms of how effective the therapeutic relationship was, how much clients disclosed or levels of empathy, attentiveness, and participation.

How do online therapy work?

We will discuss the information in your intake form, explore your needs and expectations and define your goals.

I will ask you to make yourself comfortable on a chair or bed, where you will be able to relax.

Distant Healing Sessions

Distant or absent healing is a way of sending Reiki/healing who is not physically present.

Online Hypnotherapy Consultations

I will guide you through different meditations, visualisations and provide you with positive affirmations. Your microphone and video do not need to be on. You can simply relax with your eyes closed.

At the end of the session, you will receive a professional audio recording that will be able to listen to reinforce the positive affirmations received during the session.
