I offer counselling online using Zoom and you will be able to see me using your computer, mobile phone or other device. Please have a look at the Zoom website if you are not familiar with this platform https://zoom.us/

I will email you a link each time we meet and I am happy to guide you if you are unfamiliar with this technology.

Being able to see your therapist gives you more of the benefits that you get when seeing someone face to face in their practice location.

Online therapy offers certain benefits but there are also some limitations that are worth considering.

Benefits

Counselling from your own home.

A higher level of confidentiality – you will not be seen entering the counsellor’s practice.

No travel expenses or travel time.

Things to Consider

Are you comfortable using internet technology?

Do you feel your situation is too complex to discuss via the internet?

Is there a device you can use in private without interruption?

Confidentiality

I am able to offer you confidentiality and it is important that you will be able to provide that for yourself too. This is so we will both feel free enough to be able to talk about the things you are wanting to address without feeling overheard or restricted.

Please Call or Email

If you want to find out more about my practice and how I work please email me karenraymondcounselling@gmail.com or call my work mobile 07765 554045.

If You Are In Crisis

Arranging online therapy may not be sufficient if you are in an immediate crisis. Signs of crisis may be feelings or thoughts about suicide or harm to yourself or another. In this case please consider speaking to a friend or family member. You can call 111 or 999.

You could also call The Samaritans on 116 123 this is free or email using this address jo@samaritans.org You could also send a text SHOUT to 85258 to receive support.
