Do I do telephone counselling?

Most communication is non-verbal. I therefore much prefer to see a client in the flesh. However, I do understand that it may sometimes be difficult to meet because of other commitments. I therefore do offer a telephone service for clients but with strict rules:

  • I never do an initial consultation via telephone.
  • I will have had at least 3 face-to-face sessions (including the initial session) with a client before a telephone appointment.
  • I will have received payment in advance.

1st April 2020 - Covid-19 special arrangements

The above usual requirements for the initial session and a further 2 sessions to have been conducted face-to-face before commencing telephone sessions have been suspended for the period while Covid-19 advice on social distancing remains in force. Therefore it will be possible for new clients to commence therapy using the number on the Contact page although whenever possible online counselling with video is preferable (see next FAQ).

This suspension of the normal way of working will be kept under review as the situation evolves.
