People come and ‘see’ me from all over the world, so distance is no obstacle to having a helpful conversation. Many of us are already familiar Skype or similar services for talking to friends, family or colleagues, wherever they might be, so it is a natural step to hold therapy or coaching sessions in a virtual space in the same way.

Rather than being seen as ‘second best’ to the traditional consulting room, surveys with clients show that some people are actually more comfortable using Skype.  It can engage people who would never actually take steps to locate or visit a therapist. Convenience is important for busy people, and since we can buy just about anything on-line, why not therapy and coaching too?

Skype therapy doesn’t just appeal to internet-savvy youngsters or busy working people. Doctors are offering Skype counselling services to their patients, universities are doing the same for staff and students. And housebound parents and carers can get help and support without leaving those they care for.

Coaching or Therapy via Skype is growing because it is easy to access, simple to schedule and it means you can ’try before you buy’ with a free session to assess the therapist or coach you’d be working with. See my Session Terms to find out more about how it works.

Why choose to meet via Skype?

  • It is often more convenient to ‘meet’ your therapist in the comfort of your home or office
  • It saves time and money because there is no travel with associated costs
  • You can choose you therapist, rather than being limited to one that practices near where you live
  • Easier access to the coach or therapist with shorter waiting times
  • Email backup between sessions should you feel the need
  • A free initial consultation to assess the therapist  or coach before committing
  • Greater choice; when you remove the limitation of travel many more possibilities become available.

There are many advantages to consulting a coach or therapist via Skype, and for some people it is actually their preferred route to getting guidance and support. Making an appointment takes just a few clicks, so contact me now. I’ll email you back to set up an initial free chat.

Depression’s a Bugger!

I don’t know why I’m bothering. Misinformation and misunderstanding have such an effective grip on attitudes towards depression that there’s little point.

Anyone who says the sort of things I do meets with quizzical stares and the sort of tolerant dismissal reserved for the stupidest kid in class who says they are going to make something of themselves. Or doubt, or even scorn. It’s enough to make me depressed!

Every case of depression is a personal tragedy. We all need to care enough to start thinking for ourselves.

We’ve been Talking About It Ever Since the Garden of Eden

Tend your garden

Our language is littered with gardening metaphors. I suppose that’s because we have been in contact with the earth throughout human history and that connection has shaped many of our expressions.

It has also given us an innate understanding of how to help things grow and flourish in all areas of our lives, and the things that need weeding out if our relationships are to continue to provide nourishment and beauty year after year.

Find a Sacred Place – 2

In an earlier post I wrote about finding a ‘sacred place’. There have been some questions about what I meant by ‘sacred place’.

Maybe this will clarify things a bit. Dictionary definitions seem to equate sacred with religious, and so does St. Google. I mean something different.
