Skype and telephone counselling
The psychologists at Little Window provide Skype and telephone counselling to individuals who do not live in the area or are unable to travel to sessions.
Research tells us that positive therapy outcomes are similar to those of face-to-face counselling.
There are many advantages to using Skype and telephone as modalities for therapy:
- Counselling can be accessible to everyone, including those who live in rural or remote areas, who are caring for young children, who have physical health concerns which limit their ability to leave the house, or who prefer to seek support from a professional outside of their location.
- People can access counselling support from the comfort of their own home, without having to factor in travel time and cost. This can be convenient for people who have a busy schedule and need more flexibility with appointments.
- People can still have their counselling session if they travel away from home (for example, if they travel interstate for work).
- Individuals have also reported an increased sense of control and safety by engaging in counselling in their own environment, leading to effective rapport and trust-building.
It is important to note that Skype and telephone counselling is not suitable for individuals who are feeling suicidal.
