Why I’m Switching To Online Therapy
Obviously, the Covid-19 situation is affecting all of us and the advice around it is updating all the time.
My professional governing bodies have suggested that all therapy appointments should be conducted online for the foreseeable future and this is something I’m happy to do. While I enjoy being able to welcome clients into my treatment room and meet with them in person, health is paramount.
I have conducted online therapy sessions for clients who haven’t been able to attend physical appointments in the past, so I am used to working in this way and will be able to guide you through it.
How is therapy conducted online?
I provide therapy via a video call, so uou can use your computer, laptop or even your phone or other device. I use either Zoom or VSee, which both have free versions, are easy to install and are secure and easy to use.
You might be wondering why I don’t offer Skype for therapy and that’s because my professional governing body (The UK Council for Psychotherapy) doesn’t consider it secure enough. As with any other form of therapy, your confidentiality is taken extremely seriously.
What kinds of therapy can be done online?
Both hypnotherapy and psychotherapy can be done online. The only form of therapy from my services which I don’t find practical to perform online is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming therapy).
