Online Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring
Accessible and Time Saving
Now that we live in a high-speed digital world we can connect with people in ways that were unheard of only a few years ago. Distance has become a thing of the past, and it makes no difference if you live next door or across the world. Technologies have now opened the way for a revolution in online training, counselling and coaching, making it not only easily accessible and time saving but very appealing.
What kinds of therapies work online?
In general coaching and mentoring work very well online because the people are usually highly motivated for change and willing to do the necessary work. Online counselling is also a good alternative to face-to-face counselling for individuals who are housebound, those with tight schedules, for people who travel extensively, and people living in rural or isolated areas far from a therapist office as it can be accessed from anywhere you happen to be. Likewise, online counselling has also shown to be effective in encouraging teenagers to receive therapy as they seem to be more comfortable with using the internet.
More about online coaching, mentoring and counselling
Online therapy of any kind is similar to its face to face counterpart; however, instead of having to make a visit to your therapist or coaches’ office, you can receive the same professional care online. And, the best thing is that you get to choose your therapist or coach from anywhere in the world.
Are there limitations of working online?
For some people being physically present with their therapist or coach feels like an essential part of the experience, especially if they are not tech-savvy, so for those reasons they usually dismiss the idea of working online.
Also, the scope of therapy tends to be limited, especially when it comes to more severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar and severe post-traumatic stress that require a greater degree of physical presence and direct treatment. But for most situations, we have found online counselling, coaching and mentoring to be highly effective.
Sometimes online coaching and counselling is the only option
We use Skype video conferencing which enables us to reach across borders to our clients. In fact, many people meet us online because they wouldn’t be able to otherwise. We meet with people from all over the world, but even stay-at-home parents who meet with us during nap time or in the evening, which is perfect for them because otherwise, they’d have to get a babysitter in order to come to our clinic. Enjoy the benefits of being coached, mentored or counselled in the comfort of your own home or office with privacy, no travel time, and flexible scheduling that caters for your busy life.
How much does it cost?
The cost of our online therapy is similar to face to face because there is the same amount of work involved. However, we do offer a range of packages that attract benefits when paid up front. For coaching and mentoring it is necessary to formalise an agreement. We handle payments through PayPal or direct debit prior the commencement of any program or session.
How do I get started?
All you need is a computer and internet connection, and then we can connect with you via Skype and other messaging services. Just send us an e-mail preferably through the contact page explaining your circumstances. We will then reply as soon as possible, answer your questions and let you know if we think working online is the right option for you and the cost involved. Then if you want to get started, we will conduct an initial interview with you, and we will then formulate your personal program.
We are here to provide support for you to change and grow.
