Frequently Asked Questions

For many people online counselling and life coaching is an ideal way of seeking confidential, professional, counselling help and support. You won’t have to travel to work with a professional counsellor, you can respond in your own time and you don’t need to let others know that you are seeking counselling or therapy. No one will ever see you entering a counselling room, so there is a higher level of confidentiality.

It may seem strange at first not to talk to a counsellor face to face, however that can be one of online counselling’s greatest attractions too. You can be as anonymous as you want to be and access an online counsellor or life coach from the convenience of your own home or workplace, in fact anywhere you have an internet connection, many people are now accessing online counselling via public libraries and even from their smartphones.

The other important consideration of online counselling is that Counsellors Online now offers the most affordable counselling online available anywhere.

These are all very good reasons to choose online counselling.

Sometimes online counselling and life coaching clients can be helped to see a way forward quite quickly, most people will see or feel a difference after the first session, often they describe being filled with hope. The experienced counsellor will want to help you in as shorter time as possible, whilst allowing you time and space to go at the pace that seems appropriate for you.
