Telephone counselling : The advantages
We live busier lives today. Finding space between home and work can be very challenging particularly when you have to travel both ways to see a therapist.
Telephone counselling is extremely efficient in saving time and offering the kind of support you want with particular issues that have come up in your life.
You will of course, still maintain total privacy because you choose your time and space for the call.
Engaging in telephone counselling does not exclude the possibility of face to face sessions which you may at some stage choose to do.
A further advantage is you are often more able to relax in your own home and not have any hassle due to travelling. Many people find opening up more difficult in a stranger's room. In such cases telephone work is far more effective.
Using the phone instead of face-to-face will involve the initial assessment of your needs.
In cases where you are not able to travel easily, for any physical reason, online sessions are invaluable because this is no longer an issue. Many clients who are restricted with mobility issues find such sessions just as effective as face-to-face.
If your issue is one of domestic abuse you will be able to talk to me on your mobile at a time that is safe for you.
Often in my experience, clients have been been unable to leave home and come to see me due to their partner's controlling behaviour. For sessions to be effective, safety is most important and you will be supported in the very strictest of confidence.
For clients who feel trapped, telephone provides a supportive environment where you can offload all your problems you are currently facing. In this type of situation you will be able to take a look at your predicament and develop the power and strength to take the next step in making your life better.
Telephone counselling works through providing a genuine and real understanding in a non-judgemental way. Being empathetic and really listening to the client means one can see how it is from the clients point of view. As I am a member of BACP, I abide by their rules and regulations of their ethical guidelines.
