Counselling In Somerset

Online Counselling

Online Counselling

At Echoes Counselling I offer telephone, online and face-to-face counselling. Online counselling provides the opportunity for those unable to get to a counsellor in person to access counselling. 

Our session will work in the same way as face-to-face sessions do. 

We will meet together in a private online meeting and the flow of the session will be much the same. 

To find out more information please do get in touch 

I also wrote a blog looking at what online counselling is, so please feel free to take a look! 

Online Counselling FAQ

How does it work?

As per our face-to-face sessions – but online! We can meet at the same time & frequency and with online counselling we get to see each-other. This for me is a real benefit as it helps us to feel connected during our sessions. 

How do I join a meeting?

I will send you a link to a private meeting. There is an online waiting room which you can log into. I then add you to the meeting and that’s it! If this sounds confusing please do not hesitate to get in touch and I can happily explain it to you if you are not familiar with how it works. 

How long do the sessions last for?

Sessions last for the normal amount of time, with space to feel connected to your surroundings once more.

Will it be private?

Yes! Although with the use of a 3rd party (the web-hosts for the app we use) there is a slightly different privacy policy to reflect this. In terms of privacy with me – yes! I work from home when working online, but I work in a private space and take the necessary steps to help maintain confidentiality. This will all be discussed during our first session together.

If I start with online counselling can I change to face-to-face or telephone if I would prefer?

Yes absolutely. You are very welcome to change how we meet each-other. If you are choosing to change to face-to-face sessions, times may be slightly different depending on availability. Please just get in touch and we can have a chat about things. You are also welcome to move from face-to-face to online / telephone counselling. Things change in our lives – hours at work may change for example. I am very happy to be flexible and discuss these things with you.
