From the comfort of your own home
Online Counselling, also known as Remote Counselling or teletherapy, is a form of counselling that is conducted over the internet using encrypted video conferencing.
Even though you’re not in the same room, the counsellor or psychotherapist can still help you to explore how you’re feeling, understand what you are going through and support you to make changes in your life if you need to.
Online counselling allows individuals to receive therapy from the comfort of their own home. Sometimes people choose this method because it’s easier for them to access or fits with their lifestyle or working hours better. It also means they’re not restricted to finding a counsellor who is based near them. It opens the opportunity for seeking support nationwide.
Why choose online counselling?
All our counsellors have undertaken sufficient training or qualifications that are specific to working online.
Ensuring effective communication
Our counsellors undertake online sessions using encrypted specialist mediums such as Zoom, Vsee and WhatsApp to ensure communication is just as effective and confidential as in-person sessions.
What does Encryption actually mean? It’s the process of converting information or data into a code, especially to prevent unauthorised access: “HT Counselling Services use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online”.
Clients will need a stable internet connection, a device with a camera and microphone (like a laptop, tablet, or smartphone), and a quiet space to talk in confidence and is free from interruptions.
If you have any questions about how remote counselling works or if it’s the right fit for you, feel free to contact us.
