Counselling is very normal, over 45% of Australians suffer from a mental health problem within their lifetime which has then been resolved through the use of counselling.
How long will I need counselling?
For as long as you see fit, a lot of people benefit from one or two phone/video sessions along with the email tool, however, some people decide they need counselling in their lives for a lot longer, you are in control.
What approach do you use?
I have been trained in cognitive-behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy and person-centred, however, I like to take an adaptive approach to therapy as I feel it is beneficial to my clients to swap and change between the different therapies to suit their needs.
Is counselling online safe?
Counselling online is safe and has been used as an effective way to counsel people for many years. As our lives demand more of our time online counselling has only become increasingly popular. All notes, emails, personal information are all confidential just like with traditional counselling and our video/phone chats are encrypted on both ends.
Do you offer face to face?
No, not currently I really like to keep costs to a minimum for you guys, offering traditional counselling only results in extra overheads which then leads to more expense for you.
How long should my email be?
Generally, speaking 500-1500 is best. Try to think of as much detail as possible, I need context, however, if you remember things, later on, you can send another email within the chain.
How long will it take for an email reply?
24-48hours. The first email will be more than likely consist of extra questions to allow you to look at the situation differently. Following that, you may get worksheets along with other resources of help. Depends on your treatment plan.
How do I ask a question not listed?
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, you’ll have a response within 48hours
