Since Covid-19 restrictions I have had a lot of experience of online and phone psychotherapy in the NHS. I have been surprised by how much families and young people have engaged and found it useful for weekly psychotherapy.
Following this experience, I am very happy to offer online or phone psychotherapy for short or long term work. Such work can be taken up whilst we are unable to meet in the clinic, or because it might be preferred. In my experience young children can make good use of such an approach but usually only if we have already been working face-to-face and a familiar relationship has developed. For older children, teenagers, and families, I have found online and phone psychotherapy can work well from the outset.
If you are interested in an initial session to explore the possibility of using phone or video services, please get in contact. As usual I offer a sliding scale for low income families and those taking up longer term psychotherapy.
