ZOOM Counselling

What is it?

An alternative to face to face sessions is ZOOM call counselling. Zoom provides simple online meetings through video conferencing. You do not need a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting, only the host is required to have an account to enable the scheduling of meeting.

This can be a great way to still have benefits of counselling support when you might not otherwise be able to access our practice location. ZOOM calling is especially great as we are able to see each other as well as listen to each other in real time. I offer ZOOM counselling for anyone around the world (provided you can speak and understand fluent english).

Online Counselling is ideal for you if you-

  • live too far away from Menai

  • are an Australian student living overseas of a young adult working overseas

  • are unable to travel due to physical restrictions

  • have a busy work schedule

  • or you simply just prefer to get counselling from the comfort of your home

How does it work?

All you need is a quiet, uninterrupted space where you can participate in the counselling session. Sessions are pre-booked and pre-paid and run for 50 minutes. Of course, you will need to install ZOOM, you do not require a ZOOM account, this is optional. You can do this by clicking the green button below.

You will receive the same high quality, professional service we offer in our consulting rooms. Your session is completely confidential and we are bound by professional codes of conduct.

Conditions not suited for ZOOM Counselling-

Unfortunately our ZOOM Counselling is not for every situation. Our service is likely not suited for you if you are:

  • experiencing severe depression

  • are at risk of suicide

  • are experiencing domestic violence

  • are heavily dependent on drugs or alcohol

  • have severe eating disorders

If you feel at risk of suicide you should call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or go to https://www.lifeline.org.au/get-help/online-services/crisis-chat
