Online Counselling - Video Counselling
Advances in encryption software, together with the availability of increasing bandwidth makes online therapy at South Yarra Counselling, available for most clients. Whether you wish to use it as a stand alone service or as an adjunct to traditional therapy, the choice is yours and can be discussed during your appointments.
It doesn’t matter where you live, online video therapy does away with the time and inconvenience of travelling to appointments. If your internet connection is fast enough for streaming movies, then you have enough bandwidth for online video counselling.
All sessions are conducted through the leading video conferencing platforms Zoom or Skype, which are both encrypted and are available for mobile devices or desktop computers.
To make an appointment, click the booking link, select the online counselling option and select a date and time which suits you.
