Telephone Counselling offers similar advantages to online counselling. By using a land line or mobile phone you can access therapy even when you have no access to a computer or the internet.
The safety of your own home can be beneficial if you feel intimidated by face to face therapy. The lack of visual during phone counselling can increase the sense of safety even further.
A recent study has found that nearly 60% of clients who experienced both face to face and telephone therapy preferred phone counselling.
Telephone Counselling is a specialist area of therapy. I have completed an intensive training course, which complies with the BACP telephone counselling guidelines. The course was delivered entirely over a teleconference system to help mirror the experience of working with clients without the visual. I have also trained with and worked for a helpline where I supported people in crisis.
Whilst being a convenient option, online and telephone counselling are not a poorer alternative to face to face therapy. Research has shown that it can be just as effective as seeing a therapist in person. Therefore the work we do together will be just as empowering.
