Online Counselling Therapy
WHAT I CAN OFFER
Online counselling refers to therapy sessions conducted remotely through video calls, such as Zoom. This form of counselling provides a convenient and accessible way to receive support from the comfort and privacy of your own space.

The virtual environment offers a secure and confidential space for us to work together on addressing your specific concerns, developing coping strategies, and achieving your therapeutic goals.
