Why Online Counselling

A valid and effective option to face to face sessions, moreover …

  • Save time and money -> you don’t have to leave your house
  • Date and time flexibility -> you can have your counselling sessions when it suits you (according to the timing chosen)
  • Disability is not a hurdle -> If you are hard of hearing, have speech or mobility problems
  • Anonymity and confidentiality -> if you find hard to talk about certain things face to face
  • How It Works

    It begins with an initial email in which you express your current discomfort. I will reply to it indicating:

    • my empathic understanding of the situation you are going through
    • my training and the way I work online in regard to data protection and confidentiality
    • a short questionnaire to fill in or a free Skype meeting in order to verify how best I can be of help
    After we have established the possibility of working together, I will send you two documents, the informed consent and a draft of agreement containing:
    • session formats
    • frequency and timing
    • backup plan
    • boundaries
    • cost
    Once I receive both documents signed, we will start our sessions according to the format and the timing chosen.
