At Relationship Counselling Kent we find it’s becoming increasingly common for couples to want help with their relationship, but they struggle to find the time for face to face sessions. This is often due to location, long working hours/work travel or difficulties around childcare. To meet this demand, we have introduced couples online counselling via Skype.
Online couples counselling is a new way of delivering couple counselling via the Internet. It’s just like face-to-face therapy except you and your partner communicate with your relationship therapist via your computer. Online couples counselling can prove as effective as its face-to-face alternative for some couples.
Thanks to today’s technology, help can come right into your office or home at a time that is convenient for you. This means that, even if you’re travelling for business, you can meet with your relationship therapist without missing an appointment.
It’s unlikely that traditional face to face relationship therapy will be replaced by online couple counselling. However, studies show, that it can be a good option for lots of couples.
You can see and hear your counsellor and they can see and hear you, so the experience is very close to that of face to face counselling.
You don’t have to live nearby. So, you can choose which of our couple counsellors you would like to see because they offer a particular approach
You can have counselling from the convenience and privacy of your own home or office, which saves time and money.
You get to have a similar experience to face to face counselling but without the exposure which can be daunting for some.
Skype offers the option of group video calls so couples don’t even have to be in the same location as each other.
However, online counselling is not for every couple or every situation. Some people are much more comfortable with the immediacy of face to face counselling and there are some issues that are much better dealt with face to face.
Our therapists belong to an accredited body for counsellors and psychotherapists. When online counselling, they are still bound by the same professional code of ethics as face-to-face therapy.
Skype is free to download and easy to use (see link below). All you need is a Skype or account, a computer or a tablet with a webcam and microphone. Alongside a reliable internet connection. For couple counselling we don’t recommend using a phone because it is important that the therapist is able to see both of your faces clearly.
