Skype or Facetime. You can use video, voice only, or chat only, whichever you prefer. If you do not have Skype, it is a free program that you can download to your computer, tablet or smartphone. Get Skype.
You can now work with me online to help you with your problems.
Exactly the same as seeing me in person. We can use Skype so you can see and chat with me as normal.
One of the benefits is that you are not restricted to having to travel to see me, and there are more appointments available at times that suit you, such as after working hours.
You are also not restricted to what therapists are available near where you live or work.
The internet allows you to choose the best person available as opposed to the nearest person available.
Please do not feel rushed into making an appointment with me, as I said, the internet allows you choice.
So please if you are thinking about online therapy, look around first, and decide who you would like to work with.
What is it suitable for
I am sure everyone works differently, but I will only provide online psychological therapy in situations that I think it is okay.
Which means there are some people that I will not work with, as I would not, in my opinion, be offering a good service. If you have thoughts of harming yourself in any way, I do not recommend online therapy.
If you have anxiety, panic or stress related difficulties, yes it is an excellent option.
Things you need to know first
I am based in Ireland, so you might want to be aware if there are any time differences that you need to take into account.
All therapy that I offer is in English only.
I offer different therapy lengths. You can choose between 30 minutes and 50 minutes. I decided to offer this, as you may be unsure of online therapy and only want to try 30 minutes.
Or you may already be working with me, and want a quick session, so I didn’t want you having to pay for time that you don’t really need. Which brings me to pricing.
How much does it cost?
To convert to the price in your own currency,
30 minutes online psychological therapy: €65.00
50 minutes online psychological therapy: €135.oo
Please note that prices are in Euros, but we can accept most currencies.
How do I make an appointment?
I have an online diary where you can schedule your own appointments. This is another good bonus of online work, you can book your own appointments online. If you need to change them, you can do that too.
