I offer therapy both over the Phone and over Video connections; however, I do not offer type-written ‘instant messaging’ style counselling.
Typical video connections include Phone-based and PC-based apps including, for example, WhatsApp Video, FaceTime and Zoom.
When working with couples and families usually one phone/camera at the client’s end with clients slightly apart makes for a more representative way of working which is closer to way we would normally work face-to-face in my therapy room.
When working with remote clients I feel occasional face-to-face sessions can be beneficial; however, Covid-19 measures have made this difficult.
Electronic fee payments are typically made by clients in advance by electronic transfer to my business account prior to sessions. Blocks of sessions can be paid for in advance. Amounts are in payable in sterling and no VAT is applied.
