Counselling via Skype

Accessing psychological and emotional support through online counselling via Skype, Zoom or Watsapp Video, has become increasingly popular during these uncertain times.

Historically face to face counselling was considered preferable, in more recent times online technologies such as Skype has made counselling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy accessible to everyone.

At Greenwich Wellness we provide therapy online to clients living in the UK and worldwide.

Skype Counselling allows therapeutic support that would not have otherwise been possible during this time of isolation and social distancing.

Therapy via Skype can be invaluable to people during this current pandemic as well as those clients who are disabled or housebound, allowing access to Counselling Via Skype and psychotherapy without the need for travel and the safety of your own home.

With Skype Counselling UK your choice of therapist is not limited by location this also allows you to choose an individual who most resonates with your needs.

 

What kind of issues can be addressed with Skype Counselling?

Almost any kind of personal issue can be addressed through online therapy. Over the years our online counselling services have helped clients with stress and anxiety issues, depression, bereavement and work-related problems, coping with difficult transitions, loneliness, sexual and self-confidence issues plus many others.

Our Counselling options can be either long or short term in English and Italian to our clients around the world. Counselling via Skype provides a valuable alternative to face to face therapy for English-speaking people living abroad.

The physical distance of therapy via Skype can be very helpful for those who are shy and also the thought of therapy too ‘exposing’, suffer social anxiety or that they clam up in new situations.

In addition, our hypnotherapist has found this particularly useful as she can then record the session for the client to use at there own leisure and for top-ups where they feel necessary.

Research studies of online and Skype therapy showed

A 2009 study led by the University of Bristol looking at the effects of online cognitive behavioural therapy for those who suffered depression found a 43% rate of recovery in participants and one Canadian study.

But what about studies looking at the effect of video therapy in particular? A 2013 Canadian study with a focus exclusively on video counselling vs. in-person counselling reported that “video counselling and in-person counselling had similar outcomes in regards to… rate of session helpfulness, pre and post counselling self-assessment, and rate of goal completion.”
