Phone Counselling for a brighter future

Telephone Therapy is therapy which helps children, adolescents or adults receive therapy from a therapist via traditional telephone or Skype and FaceTime. Often, telephone therapy is supplemented with other online therapy, such as text based services or email.

More and more people are coming round to the idea of telephone therapy, and recent research shows that telephone therapy has just as much therapeutic value as face to face therapy, and in some instances, even more so.

There are advantages and disadvantages to telephone therapy, but these are all subjective, and objectively speaking, telephone therapy is a viable way for someone to get help.

Telephone therapy is also a priceless way of helping people who do not have the means or opportunity to attend face-to-face sessions, to receive the help that they want to receive.

What is Phone therapy or phone counselling?

Phone therapy, also known as phone counselling, telephone therapy or telephone counselling, is the process of talking to a therapist via telephone or Skype to resolve mental health issues, beliefs, feelings and life problems. 

Phone counselling is becoming more and more popular due to the huge growth in mobile telecommuncations and much wider access to the web. 

Telephone therapy is a great way of connecting to a professional therapist at a time that fits with your schedule and from a location that you prefer. 

Counselling by phone – how does it work?

Counselling by phone is similar to traditional face-to-face counselling.

 

It provides a private window in which you can talk one-to-one with a therapist about issues affecting your life. Like other forms of therapy, you arrange for an initial consultation where your chosen counsellor assesses your situation. Assessment by phone often speeds up the process as there is greater flexibility with appointment times and so it is easier to ‘connect’. The phone therapist is qualified in just the same way as a face-to-face therapist and will listen to you and talk to you about an appropriate programme of therapy treatment.

Phone therapy sessions

Phone therapy sessions normally last from 30 minutes to an hour, but there is flexibility and so you can have shorter or longer phone counselling sessions to fit with your specific needs.

Phone counselling offers you more freedom than traditional methods of counselling. This makes counselling more accessible to those who need therapy. Committing to a phone therapy session is a far easier than committing to seeing a therapist in a treatment room, which generally involves travel and so much more time. This is particularly relevant for those who find it difficult to travel. In addition, phone therapy offers far greater anonymity, and people often find it easier to open up about problems without being face to face with a therapist. Phone therapy can help with depression, bereavement, anxiety and any other issue that face to face counselling can also help with.

The many advantages of phone counselling

  • Phone counselling can save you time

    Phone therapy lets you connect at a time that suits you. You are not as restricted as phoning your therapist from your preferred location is far quicker than travelling. It means you can schedule telephone therapy sessions to fit in with your lunch break at work or when your baby is having a nap. Alternatively, you may prefer a session as soon as you reach home after work or even at the weekend. Those extra hours you save in the day soon add up, which means  and more time to focus on improving your life.

  • Phone therapy is easy when far away

    Trips away for work, study and holidays can disrupt a course of psychotherapy counselling, often at times when such support is needed most. But with phone therapy, there is no such barrier. It is easy to factor in time slots when away. This also applies to those who live in a remote location or abroad. Phone therapy allows you to work with your therapist and improve your mental wellbeing, wherever you are in the world. Phone therapy for expats is something that the UK Therapy Guide can help you with, as many people find it easier to connect with someone and discuss issues with a person of a similar culture and background.

  • Telephone therapy is helpful for those with mobility issues

    If you have problems with mobility, then phone counselling makes life far easier. There is no need to book expensive transport, get the assistance of a carer or have to go through the struggle of accessing facilities that may not be easily accessible.

  • Phone therapy is important for Agoraphobia treatment

    If you suffer from agoraphobia or feel uncomfortable about leaving the safety of your own home, then starting a course of phone therapy can offer a lifeline. Phone counselling for agoraphobia provides direct access to specialist professional counsellors who understand your situation and who can put you on course to a happier future.

  • Phone counselling saves you money

    The cost of travel will nearly always far-exceed the cost of a phone call. With Skype, inclusive mobile packages and landline phone deals, the cost of making a call has never been cheaper. In addition, because counsellors providing therapy over the phone do not need to use relevant in-house facilities, they can often provide treatment at lower prices than face to face.

  • Phone therapy offers more privacy

    Privacy with counselling is paramount. There is sometimes a stigma attached to mental wellbeing issues and many prefer to keep their treatment completely private. Phone counselling offers extra privacy. Making a phone call and talking enables you to retain complete anonymity. It means you never need to worry about bumping into someone you would prefer not to see when you have a session. This extra privacy can also make it easier for some to open up freely to their therapist and share their innermost concerns, helping to accelerate the treatment.

  • Phone counselling gives you a wider choice of therapists

    With any type of therapy, it is vital to find a therapist who is correctly qualified and experienced to treat your particular condition. With phone therapy, you are offered a wider choice of specialists, far more than you will generally find in your own area, as there are no limitations which may restrict you. Finding the right therapist to suit you is what The UK Therapy Guide is here to do.
