Working with us online, by email or telephone
We offer online, email and telephone therapy and coaching to clients who prefer or need to work in this way. These services are available through our First Psychology Online service. People often seek these types of therapies for a whole range of reasons including irregular working patterns, living in areas far from our centres, moving away, working away from home, or mobility issues.
Online therapy is similar to a standard therapy session in that you can see and hear your practitioner (and them you). Many of our practitioners have experience working with clients using online technologies and this type of therapy option has proven particularly popular for many clients.
Our email service can work in two ways, either:
- a real-time exchange of emails where you and your practitioner agree a time to meet and sit down at our computers during this period (50 minutes) and swap emails or,
- a delayed-time correspondence where you both 'meet' for a session over a given period, say a week, and your practitioner spends 50 minutes during this period reading and replying to your emails.
Our telephone therapy and coaching service operates in the same way as a regular session in that we agree a day and a time to meet, but do so by telephone. This can be a very effective way of working, and increasing numbers of clients are opting to work in this way. We would generally ask you to send in or email copies of any tasks we have agreed you would undertake (e.g. an anxiety diary) before the telephone session, so we can see where we are if we are not meeting face to face.
