Whether you are in Taunton Massachusetts or Taunton Somerset you can now access the same counselling service thanks to local provider New Leaf Counselling.
Rural areas in Somerset can benefit from a new service, counselling via the internet. Traditionally rural communities have been forced to travel large distances to receive adequate, cost-effective counselling. Online counselling in Somerset will help reach remote populations across the world and any area can now be served easily and cost effectively as well as clients who prefer a hi-tech solution.
Online counselling has been called by many names. Online therapy, internet therapy, internet counselling, e-therapy, e-counselling, ecounselling have all been used, but all the names describe exactly the same process.
Just because you are a physical distance from the counsellor does not mean the counselling feels distant. In may ways using a web camera can allow you to speak with the counsellor from the comfort of your own home. You can also make contact via msn messenger and via email. Becky the Lead Therapist at New Leaf says, " This is a great way of using technology to help people who may find it difficult to access services like counselling. Some people may also find meeting face to face too intimidating and like the idea of using the internet to break down those initial fears."
You don't need to be a technological whizz to access this service as the New Leaf Website http:www.newleaf.uk.com guides you through this process.
