The utmost priority for the counsellors working as part of the Chiltern Counsellors Network is the health and safety of our clients.
In the current unprecedented, uncertain circumstances caused by the coronavirus pandemic, our counsellors are able to offer the continuity and reassurance of "remote" counselling sessions for clients who are self-isolating at home, or who are anxious about attending face-to-face sessions in person.
"Remote" counselling sessions can take place via telephone calls, or using online video conferencing software such as Skype or Zoom, which can be used on a PC, laptop or tablet. Some counsellors can also offer sessions via tablet and smartphone apps such as FaceTime and WhatsApp.
Online counselling sessions share the same features as face-to-face sessions: they run for 50 minutes, and take place at a mutually agreed time and date.
To ensure you get the best experience of an online session, as a client, it is important that during the session you are in a quiet and secure location, where you are unlikely to be disturbed or overheard by anyone.
If you have any further questions about receiving "remote" online counselling, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
