Telephone Therapy

What is telephone therapy?

Therapy is not just about face-to-face sessions. Many therapists offer appointments through the phone or online platforms. Telephone therapy, also known as over the phone counselling or over the phone therapy, is the same as face-to-face or video-call therapy with a qualified and registered therapist but delivered over a phone call. Telephone counselling and online therapy have become popular as society has moved to a more remote model of communication. With the current technologies, people don’t need to commute to attend therapy, benefiting from the flexibility to work on one’s mental health from home.

Telephone therapy

Can telephone therapy be as effective as face-to-face?

Yes. The platform used for therapy is not as important as the relationship built between the client and therapist. An important element of therapy is that you feel heard and understood.

Our therapists are fully qualified and can adapt to different platforms, whether you prefer telephone therapy, online therapy, or face-to-face therapy, we can help you.

Regardless of the platform, we will create a safe environment for you to share and work on your problems. We are empathetic and skilled therapists and can help you progress either over the phone or face-to-face.

What can telephone counselling help with?

Telephone therapy can help with many of the same issues as face-to-face counselling. Some examples include:

Social anxiety
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Eating Disorders
Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia
Bereavement and grief
Body dysmorphia
Body image issues
And more

Why do people use over the phone therapy?

Dislike technology

Not a tech person? We get it, using computers, the internet and Wi-Fi can become a hassle sometimes. Telephone therapy is easy, just take the phone and take the incoming call. That’s it.

It can be easier to share over the phone

For some of us, sharing our deepest thoughts and emotions with a therapist can be difficult. Some people find it easier to share if nobody is looking at them.

Nobody is looking at you

Meeting someone new, including a therapist, can be a draining experience for people with social anxiety, shyness, or introversion. Over the phone counselling can make the first step easier.

Physical hurdles

Some clients might have mobility difficulties that make it difficult to commute to a therapy practice.

It can feel more confidential

Saves time and money

You don’t have to commute, which saves your time and commute money. It allows for more flexibility when organising your day.
