Online Therapy

A Convenient and Safe Alternative to Face to Face Counselling and Hypnotherapy

I use Zoom’s video-conferencing service to provide a safe and convenient way to offer online counselling and hypnotherapy. Conversations via Zoom are encrypted so your privacy is protected (see Zoom’s privacy policy for more information).

Preparing for your first online therapy session

I will send you an email invite which contains a link to your scheduled online therapy session. Simply click on the link in this invite and you will be guided through the set up process. As part of the process, you will need to download the free Zoom app onto your mobile phone, tablet or computer.  It’s best to allow some time to do this in advance of your first session commencing. See Zoom’s video guide for more information.

Creating a safe space for your online therapy session

Choose a quiet, private location at home or elsewhere where you are safe and free from disruptions or distractions. If you have them, headphones with a microphone can offer added privacy. 

Remember to put your mobile phone onto Silent Mode so you will not be disturbed. Turn off any virtual assistant, such as Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana or Google Assistant on your mobile phone and computer. Switch off Amazon Alexa or equivalent if it is in the space you are using.

Accessing online therapy in the UK from overseas

Please note that as I am based in the UK, I am governed by UK jurisdiction. If you are seeking online counselling or hypnotherapy from overseas, you will need to confirm your agreement to this.

Kind regards
