I can offer a theraputic online counselling service for Adults and Young People via the internet through email, text, voice call, video call and instant messaging. Email me for online support request. Must be over the age of 16
Email counselling session are a series of email exchanges between us. We will agree a set time frame in which emails are sent and responded to. I suggest a guideline of up to 50 minutes writing each email and that the email is no longer than 750-900 words. This way we can ensure that our email exchanges mimic the process of face to face counselling as much as possible. I will in turn spend up to 50 minutes reading your email and composing my reply to you. I ask that you send your messages via a fully encrypted secure web-mail services such as hushmail. Alternatively, we can send password protected word documents.

Skype is free to download and is a secure application that uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Data is stored on Microsoft servers for a short period however (even if deleted off users’ machines) and this could potentially cause a small risk.
There is no guarantee that online counselling is 100% safe, but provided care and consideration is used, the risk that a third party can hack in to the communication is minimal.
I ask that clients ensure they secure their computer and emails against unauthorised viewing by third parties. This may include adopting the use of password protection for all personal email accounts and documents etc. I also recommend that a client does not engage in online counselling using a public computer, or use a computer in a public place, where the content of exchanges could be viewed by others in the close proximity.
During the course of online counselling, it may become clear that a different type of counselling approach or support would be more suitable for you. In this case it would be appropriate to refer you to alternative services or other healthcare professionals. This will be discussed with you at the time.
I will provide, to the best of my ability, online counselling opportunities that endeavor to create a supportive, non-judgmental response in which you will be given time and space to reflect.
This process can foster growth and lead to positive changes.
