A recent research study indicates that, "...similar clinical outcomes can be achieved via the telephone as are obtained in face-to-face [therapy]".
Furthermore, the alliance between therapist and client, as well as levels of empathy, attentiveness, participation and openess, are equivalent as in face-to-face therapy.

To maximise your safety and wellbeing at this time, I can provide telephone counselling, where appropriate.
I have completed specialist telephone counselling training in order to offer this option.
