Michele is now also able to provide online therapy for adults and teenagers. Online therapy is a great alternative for people who choose /prefer (for many reasons) not to have their therapy sessions in a physical therapy.
Reasons for choosing online therapy
People may choose this way of working as they are living in an area in the UK where it may difficult to find a therapist, or they may be living in another country, other reasons maybe it is too challenging to leave the home due to mobility issues or available time is very restricted. Online therapy can also be a great stepping stone for people wanting therapy but who are feeling too overwhelmed / depressed or anxious to make the journey to the physical therapy space. As well as the reasons cited above teenagers in particular may also prefer online therapy as they are generally more experienced and comfortable in using this mode of communication.
Online parent/carer consultation sessions
Michele will also be using online video connection for parents/carers wanting to book a consultation session to discuss any concerns or worries they may have about their child or teenager. This has always been a part of her work as a child psychotherapist, as parents often just need a confidential space to talk about any concerns they may have about their children. This may be connected to life changes such as separation/divorce, bereavement or there may just be a general concern and worry about their child’s behaviour and want a supportive space to explore ideas and approaches to support their child and themselves.
