You can now receive empathic counselling without going to a counsellor or having a counsellor enter your home.
With improvements in technology I can now offer counselling over Skype. This enables you to have one to one counselling, either with video link so we are able to see one another whilst talking, or audio only.
Online counselling can have advantages over traditional counselling. You don’t have to go anywhere as you can do it from home. You may well feel less intimidated because you can simply turn your computer off at anytime you like. From experience counselling can be just as effective online, it can also allow you to feel more private and even anonymous.
Many emotional problems can be helped with empathic counselling including anxiety, stress, phobia, depression, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, jealousy and in many unresolved issues throughout life.
All you need a computer, microphone and webcam. Most modern laptops have a microphone and webcam included, therefore you have all you need. However, you may wish to invest in a headset including headphones and microphone for more privacy and better quality. Or you may prefer a separate microphone and a separate webcam. You then need only download Skype which is very easy to then set up.
