What is online coaching?
Online coaching provides an opportunity to engage in a goal focused relationship, exploring personal issues in the privacy of your home or safe space. As with any type of coaching or therapeutic work, this can be done face to face, by telephone or online. Online coaching enables you to work through your sessions and activities within the same protected space, at a mutually agreed time. There is a lot more flexibility to connect in between sessions, by phone, text or email if there is anything that needs to be discussed or queried.
By using encrypted platforms such as Zoom or VSee, we can meet via video chat, Instant Message or email. This means that if you are unable to make face to face appointments because of time, work or family commitments, you can still have a meaningful session online and work through a process of change at a time that is convenient for you. Please contact me if you have any queries regarding this or any other issue that you feel you need to discuss in more detail.
Benefits of Working Online:
- Easy access to your Coach through live video chat
- Connect with your Coach from anywhere in the world
- Convenience – takes place in your home or wherever you are 24 hours a day 7 days a week
- Flexibility – you can get quick answers or guidance to problems or you can schedule regular sessions
- Anonymity and security
How online counselling works:
Where possible, I am always happy to meet face-to-face and this is something we can talk about during our initial consultation session.
However, due to the flexibility of my work and the joys of the internet, we can also utilise other formats. There are a couple options available to you, both of which are explained below. You can choose between coaching via secure video conferencing or telephone. Instant messaging, texting and emailing are also additional resources we can use in between session if you need to get hold of me for any reason.
Coaching via secure video conference:
This option is probably most like face to face coaching. If you choose this option we will also agree a fixed 60 minute appointment slot, during which we meet via a secure video conference service (VSee). VSee is a securely encrypted service that is available free of charge here its download and set up are easy. Once you are ready to begin, contact me in the boxes below to send me an initial message. You can give as much or as little information as you would like in that first message, but I would suggest that you keep your initial enquiry message somewhere between 100 and 300 words. I will then email you our counselling agreement, which you will need to complete and sign before we book in our first appointment.
If you are UK based, you may choose to use telephone counselling if you prefer to hear a voice during your session. You will need to provide me with a telephone number where I can call you at our fixed appointment time. In order to book a telephone coaching appointment, contact me in the boxes below to send me an initial message. You can give as much or as little information as you would like in that first message, but I would suggest that you keep your initial enquiry message somewhere between 100 and 300 words. I will then email you our coaching agreement, which you will need to complete and sign before we book in our first appointment.

I have undertaken a Diploma in Online Counselling Services and Training in order to be able to offer online counselling, in addition to face-to-face, because I feel it is important to work with my clients in the way that makes them most comfortable. The important thing is that I can support you on your journey.
