When might you consider using online counselling?

 You might consider online counselling if you have limited mobility, have difficulty accessing transport, feel safer talking to someone from your own home or you simply find it hard to fit a one-to-one meeting into a busy schedule. If you would like to access my online counselling service, please call on07592 593 734and I will be happy to discuss whether it might be right for you. It is preferable for us to meet on a one-to-one basis at my Bristol counselling practice for our first session, but this is not essential.

When might online counselling not be the best option?

Online counselling isn't suitable for everybody. One of my key aims in counselling is to provide a safe space for you to share your experience so it's essential that you still feel safe if we are talking via video rather than meeting face-to-face in the same room. For that reason, I may not be able to offer online counselling if:
  • You are having frequent and intrusive thoughts of suicide
  • You are at risk of harming yourself
  • You are at risk of harm from someone else

If you are not sure whether this applies to you or whether online counselling services are right for you, please call me on      07592 593734 and I will be happy to talk with you about your options.

How will we connect?

I use the VSee video platform for online counselling.  VSee allows you to make free video calls via the internet and has been designed to meet the confidentiality requirements necessary for counselling and other medical disciplines that some other systems like Skype, do not. All you need is a computer with a webcam and a decent broadband connection. If you don't already have a VSee account, the software is free and it's very easy to set an account up on the VSee website.
If you are looking for online counselling support, please contact Susanne Hart Counselling Services on 07592 593 734 in Knowle, South Bristol to talk through your options.
