Due to COVID-19, my practice had to change dramatically in 2020, and face-to-face became difficult. While I was first hesitant to use online counselling I wanted to continue counselling clients, so I opted to use Zoom. I have since found Zoom to be an excellent delivery mechanism for therapy, and body language and tone have not been impacted. Furthermore, some clients are less nervous about counselling now, feeling comfortable seeing me in their own home. Some clients haven’t needed to worry about organising babysitters or having to travel. An added bonus is that you can have a session from anywhere in the country. Also, a couple do not have to be in the same house to have therapy together, so I’ve been working with people far and wide in different or complex circumstances.
June 2021 Update: Greater Sydney is now in lockdown for the next two weeks – as of 6pm June 26th 2021. Therapy will still be available. However. Zoom or Facetime will be the only method of therapy available by my practice. For the safety of my family and my clients, and working with NSW Department of Heath guidelines, face-to-face is on hold until there is stability regarding COVID-19 within the wider community. I can be contacted on 0416 665 165 Mon-Fri for your enquiries.
