Online Counselling

The main service offered by HEART AND SOUL counselling is online counselling. This service takes place as sessions via Skype or as e-mail counselling.

It has been found in these times that the need and opportunity for online counselling far surpasses the traditional set-up in which the client or counsellor travel in order to meet face-to-face. Counselling by Skype or e-mail might at first bring up a certain reservation, since it appears to be less personal. You will be surprised however, how quickly you will find ease and relaxation in being attended to in your own home.

This method will be of particular significance if certain limitations, such as handicap, old age or chronic illness cause you to be fairly housebound. The online method provides a quality of attention, commitment, confidentiality and empathy that is on a par with the quality of face-to-face sessions

There are numerous situations where long-distance counselling is the better or the only option:

  • When your considerable personal and professional obligations make it impossible for you to afford the time to travel and visit your counsellor during weekday hours.

  • When, as the result of a handicap or chronic condition, you are house-bound.

  • For the same reason of chronic illness, it can be that your well-being and energy levels are unpredictable, and having to travel or keeping to set appointments would add to your stress.

  • Perhaps you feel more at ease and comfortable working from the privacy of your own home.

  • Maybe the scope of HEART AND SOUL would particularly meet your circumstances and needs, but you live in another place or even another time zone altogether.

  • It can be that you wish to bypass the costly and time-consuming travel that face-to-face sessions bring with them.

  • Working from your own home and not having to travel to appointments brings with it a great freedom, as does not having to commit to appointments at all, in the case of e-mail counselling.

Aside from counselling by e-mail or through Skype, as a matter of long-distance counselling HEART AND SOUL also offers:

  • Telephonic counselling

  • A combination of any of the above

HEART AND SOUL counselling is available to you, no matter your circumstances, your (dis)abilities, where you live or your daily commitments.
