Steps for Therapy To get started
It can be a daunting process to take the first step to reach out once you have decided to start with an online counsellor. I hope that this page guides you through helpfully, and if you still have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
Decide what method / platform you think would be best for you to me as your online counsellor. I would recommend connecting through Doxy. The link below takes you to a page giving you more information on Doxy and other suggested platforms that I am set up to provide therapy through.
Bringing a virtual counsellor into your environment can be convenient but keeping a confidential space is then less within a therapist’s control. The link below gives takes you to page with pointers to help you keep your information private. The page also provides lots of hints and advice to get the most out of your online counselling.
Find a slot from my booking calendar that suits you best and book your session online. You will immediately be sent a confirmation email. Within a day, I will also email you the registration form and client agreement for you to complete securely online. The registration form will ask you to confirm what platform you would like to use. The paperwork does need to be completed before your session starts so that I can be sure that we are set up. We will need to go through any unanswered sections in the form together when you dial in for your initial assessment session.
Book your session
I will be waiting for you to dial in on your preferred platform at your session time. Please dial into me when you are ready. If I do not hear from you a few minutes into your session, I will make an attempt to contact you through the platform or the phone or email you provided at the time of booking / in your registration form.
Thank You for making the step
