Seeking therapy is one of the hardest, yet most important decisions someone struggling with anxiety or any form of mental trauma can make. But sometimes, patients lack time to attend face-to-face sessions.
Our goal at UK Therapy Guide is to do our best in helping patients that seek our advice and, luckily, technology is aiding us in this journey. Now, we can provide help wherever you need it, via Skype counselling. Whether you are at home or in your office, our counsellors, therapists or psychotherapists can provide guidance online, just as they would in a traditional office.
Over the past few years, Skype counselling has become increasingly popular, as it provides a convenient, flexible and affordable form of therapy for people who would otherwise not have the means to see a therapist in their office.
Through Skype counselling, you are not bounded by your geographical location and can get access to professional help even if you live in a remote area. Instead of travelling for miles to go to a therapist’s office, you can get quick access to treatment from the comfort of your own home.
Because it offers more flexible counselling hours, Skype therapy is also suited for people with hectic schedules or those who need to travel a lot and can’t visit a traditional office.
Skype counselling is suited for the majority of psychological therapies, including family counselling, relationship advice, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression therapy, and addiction treatment.
We know all these issues can be hard to talk about, but we are doing our uttermost best to help patients find a convenient way to open up and pursue therapy. Being able to do so from a more private environment, such as their own home, will help patients feel more secure. With their privacy protected and away from strangers’ eyes, patients find it easier to speak about their issues and therapy becomes more comfortable to pursue.
Our team of professional Skype counsellors, therapists and psychotherapists are trained to make online therapy just as effective as face-to-face sessions.
At UK Therapy Guide, our therapists are appropriately certified by accrediting bodies for counsellors and psychotherapists, such as the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), or by the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), which is the lead accrediting body for cognitive behaviour therapists.
All of our Skype counsellors are bound by the code of ethics of their accrediting bodies. This means patients can benefit from the same levels of confidentiality they would in a face-to-face therapy session.
Skype counselling is very accessible to anyone. All you need is a computer, tablet or phone that supports the Skype app and has a microphone and webcam, a Skype account, and a reliable internet connection.
