“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Online counselling?

Do the words ‘Click here for counselling?’ Sound kinda weird? If you’re thinking of trying online counselling, here’s what you need to know.

What is online counselling?

Basically, it’s counselling or therapy you access through your computer. You chat to your counselor through online messaging, similar to Skype.

Why is it useful? Well, if you live miles away from any counselors, struggle going outside, or like the idea of getting help in your own home, then it’s a flexible alternative. Some people find it’s a good first step towards face-to-face counseling too.

Talking to a counselor online

If you want support from an actual person, you can use services that offer counselling through online chat, email or Skype. Most of them are self-referral, so you don’t have to go through your GP.
