Online therapy/counselling

Due to the increased professional, family and practical pressures working with a therapist online using a trusted (secure) platform is a more accessible way for many to try therapy. Particularly during and since the covid pandemic, working online for periods has been a necessity for most of our therapists. They may ask you questions about privacy (eg: that you won’t be disturbed), or your plans before and after your session to ensure the same ethical, confidential and autonomous practice can be achieved so you get the most out of sessions safely.

How It Works?

The landscape of therapy has evolved to meet the needs of individuals facing an array of professional, family, and practical pressures. Online therapy, conducted through a trusted and secure platform, has emerged as a highly accessible mode of therapeutic engagement. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath, online therapy has shifted from an option to a necessity for many individuals. Therapists now offer the option of online sessions, ensuring that individuals can access therapy safely and conveniently.

Online therapy sessions, like their in-person counterparts, prioritize the same ethical standards and principles. Therapists may inquire about specific factors to guarantee the session’s confidentiality and autonomy, promoting a secure and productive therapeutic journey. These considerations may encompass ensuring that individuals won’t be disturbed during the session and inquiring about their plans both before and after the session. This commitment to ethical and confidential practice is aimed at ensuring that individuals can derive the maximum benefit from their online sessions while maintaining a sense of safety and privacy.

Who Requires It

Online therapy via a secure platform serves as an accessible option for individuals dealing with a diverse range of challenges and circumstances, including:

  • Managing stress and anxiety
  • Coping with depression and mood disorders
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Grief and loss
  • Work-related stress and career development
  • Coping with trauma and post-traumatic stress
  • Emotional regulation and self-care
  • Managing life transitions and changes
  • Coping with family dynamics and conflicts
  • Mental health and well-being

The flexibility of online therapy caters to the unique needs and circumstances of individuals from all walks of life. It provides a secure and convenient space for individuals to access the support they require, ensuring that therapy remains an accessible resource regardless of external pressures and demands. Online therapists uphold the highest ethical standards, supporting individuals in their journey toward emotional well-being and personal growth.
