I can offer you several options:
Online counselling by either email or Secure live Sessions using encrypted instant messenging facilities, and also face to face counselling appointments.
You write and send me a first email. I will compile my reply and send it to you. My reply will involve a thorough exploration of your email and I will endeavour to reflect on any themes or patterns that you may wish to work on with me. Over the course of our email exchanges, one aspect of my role will be to create a positive, non-judgemental working relationship which enables you to feel supported and trusting in the counselling process.
Synchronous,or Live online counselling sessions
For clients who select this option we would have exchanged an initial email or two (without charge), whilst in the process of deciding if online counselling is the most suitable form of support for the issues you wish to discuss. We would then go ahead and arrange an appointment time that is convenient to you,using a secure instant chat facility
If you choose Online counselling we can work by email exchange or by Instant messenging live meetings, or both if you wish. Both methods can be beneficial for therapy exchanges and we would negotiate this depending on what feels best for you

A summary of my Professional Studies and Qualifications:
About Counselling and Online CounsellingTaking time to read this page may provide information which could be useful to help you make a decision on the best choice for you before you engage in counselling. In all cases giving careful attention to both the medium of counselling being offered and the qualifications and experience of your chosen counsellor is an important factor in this.
Counselling can be beneficial where a person is experiencing either personal or relationship difficulties. It provides an opportunity to explore those difficulties with a counsellor in a confidential, Ethical, and supportive manner which may not be available to you in any other context. Clients often say that talking to a professional who has no personal pre- conceived ideas or view regarding what is best for the individual can provide a positive environment for them to find both a way forward with a problem and also a way of not feeling influenced by others views. This can be difficult when talking with a friend or family member as they will often have an opinion which may conflict with what you would choose as the best option for yourself.
