If you think you would benefit from seeing a counsellor, psychotherapist or therapist, but know that you would struggle to fit a series of face-to-face sessions into your busy schedule, online counselling via Skype might be the best choice for you.
Thanks to today’s technology, help can come right into your office or home at a time that is convenient for you. You can talk about your issues with your counsellor, psychotherapist or therapist online, using a medium such as Skype.
Skype counseling has grown in popularity as it offers more affordable and convenient therapy for people who would otherwise have difficulty travelling to a therapist. Also, it offers more flexible counselling hours and is not geographically bound. Instead of going to a therapist's offices, Skype counseling enables you to connect with your therapist from your home, or wherever you are.
This means that, even if you're travelling for business, you can meet with your therapist without missing an appointment.
Skype counselling works well for many types of psychological interventions, including relationship issues, stress and anxiety, depression, phobias, family counseling and more.
UK Therapy Guide have several Skype therapists, Skype counsellors and Skype psychotherapist that can help you to talk through and explore issues you may be facing.
All of UK Therapy Guide’s therapists are experienced and properly accredited.
The therapists will belong to a accrediting body for counsellors and psychotherapists such as the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) or the lead accrediting body for cognitive behaviour therapists which is the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). Counsellors working via Skype are bound by the codes of ethics of their professional accrediting organisation, the same as in face-to-face work. Many have specific training in online counselling.
Skype is very easy to use. All you need is a Skype account, a computer, tablet or phone with a webcam and microphone facility and a fast and reliable internet connection.
