What is Online Video Counselling?
When you work online with a counsellor you work from your computer using the internet. Some therapists will offer online counselling where you don’t meet the therapist face to face at all, while others may add it to their face to face practice for the purposes of administration (e.g. scheduling or re-scheduling sessions) or for extra support between sessions. Online Video counselling is convenient
Online counselling takes place wherever the person and their computer, increasingly I am in contact with clients who are sending from their mobile phones and I can see this becoming a bigger development area the more sophisticated mobile phone technology becomes. Geographical location is also important for different reasons. Some people travel about a lot and find it difficult to get to a fixed location for an appointment regularly, Cutting out the journey time to and from a counselling appointment can make a difference for people who have to make complex care arrangements. In addition, video online counselling adapts to individual lifestyles and can be fitted more conveniently around family and work life. You can do it when best suits you and from the comfort of your own home.
So the reasons why some clients choose online counselling are its convenience, flexibility, also it can be safer for those clients with underlay health issues, especially in these times of Covid 19.
