Online Therapy

If you are not in a position to see a therapist face-to-face, you don’t have to feel isolated with your problems. You may find online therapy useful. 

The Couple Consultancy isn’t new to online counselling. We offer it as a regular part of our service and many people have already benefitted from it when they may have otherwise not been able to access therapy.

How is online counselling different from face-to-face?

Online counselling offers you the same expertise as our face-to-face service, except instead of meeting in person for our sessions, they will be conducted via webcam.

Online sessions tend to suit couples or individuals who, for whatever reason, are unable to make it to our office.

This could be because someone works away often and can only maintain regular appointments by joining online, it may be difficult to arrange regular childcare, you and your partner may live apart, or you could be living too far away from our central London office to make face-to-face meetings – such as in a different country or city. 

Is online counselling effective? 

Many people find online therapy extremely beneficial. This may be for various reasons; you may find it easier to open up in a surrounding that is more familiar to you, such as your own home.

There is also something called the disinhibition effect, where people feel more comfortable opening up and discussing problems when they’re online. It may also make it easier for you to commit to regular sessions which wouldn’t otherwise be possible. 

How does online counselling work?

We provide an open-minded, confidential and safe space for you and your partner to be able to say what’s on your mind. 
If we see you falling into old, destructive ways of relating, we’ll work with you to recognise what’s going on and explore a better way of communicating that works for you both. 

We won’t take sides. But we will create a forum for you to be able to explore your difficulties together, how you can communicate better about what’s troubling you, and we’ll work with you to create the kind of relationship you want in your life. 

Learning a new way to have old conversations, often on the matters you’ve been avoiding, can lead to a development in your relationship that you never thought possible.
