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.
September 2021 Update: Greater Sydney is still in lockdown but therapy is available via Zoom or Facetime for the time being. In January 2022 I will be opening up limited face-to-face again for certain clients. For the rest of 2021 I will continue to see my clients remotely. Considering I currently have multi COVID-19 clients, and a number who are close contacts and therefore quarantining, safety while allowing access to therapy for all is so important, and I’m working within NSW Department of Heath guidelines.
