Why offer online couples counselling?

We find it’s becoming increasingly common for couples to want help with their relationship, but they struggle to find the time for face to face sessions. This is often due to location, long working hours/work travel or difficulties around childcare. To meet this demand, we have introduced couples online counselling via Zoom, Skype or Facetime.

Online couples counselling can prove as effective as its face-to-face alternative for some couples because it is in line with how we live our lives today. For those who choose the more traditional therapy route,  it is usually because they haven’t yet experienced the freedom that online therapy offers.

What is online couples counselling?

Online counselling is a new way of delivering couple counselling via the Internet. It’s just like face-to-face therapy except you and your partner communicate with your relationship therapist via your computer.

Thanks to today’s technology, help can come right into your office or home at a time that is convenient for you. This means that, even if you’re travelling for business, you can meet with your relationship therapist without missing an appointment.

The benefits of online couples counselling

As mentioned above, making time to see a therapist can be a logistical challenge.  Studies show, that this can be a really good option for lots of couples.

  • You can see and hear your counsellor and they can see and hear you. So the experience is very close to that of face to face counselling.
  • You don’t have to live nearby. So, you can choose which of our couple counsellors you would like to see because they offer a particular approach
  • You can have counselling from the convenience and privacy of your own home or office, which saves time and money.
  • You get to have a similar experience to face to face counselling but without the exposure – which can be daunting for some.
  • Both Zoom and Skype offer the option of group video calls so couples don’t even have to be in the same location as each other.

Our therapists belong to an accredited body for counsellors and psychotherapists. When online counselling, they are still bound by the same professional code of ethics as face-to-face therapy.
