David Chandler CPsychol, MBACP (Snr Acc) - Lifecipher Counselling
CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCY: FREE ON-LINE SUPPORT FOR SELF-ISOLATING ELDERLY SINGLE PEOPLE.
In the coming weeks and months many elderly people who live on their own in the UK may find that they need to self-isolate in order to limit the risk of catching the coronavirus. If you are over 65, living on your own and find yourself in this position, but have access to Skype and would find it helpful to discuss your general concerns and worries, then please let me know as I will be providing a limited number of free consultations.
Lifecipher Counselling provides on-line counselling via Skype. For anyone unfamiliar with on-line counselling a free 30 minute introductory session is available.

Hello my name’s David Chandler and I hope I can help you in your search to find out more about counselling, either for yourself or someone else you care about.
I chose the name Lifecipher for my business because I work in a profession which is about trying to help people to figure out the complex problems that beset their lives. Some people find their problems so difficult to work out that it is almost like trying to decipher a code. Quite often the reason for this is that something has happened that falls outside of their normal understanding of how the world works; or at least how they believed the world worked. When significant changes like this occur people can feel very disorientated, vulnerable and confused. It is at times like this that counselling psychologists can be of assistance and through therapy help people reorient themselves.
The information contained below describes the services that I am able to provide. For more detailed information or to just have an informal conversation feel free to contact me.
Having worked in the field of counselling for over thirty years I have now moved my business from office-based to working solely on-line, using Skype. In many respects working on-line has many similarities to seeing people in a consulting room and in fact, some people find it easier as they are in their own home rather than a strange office. Another positive factor is that it removes the need for travelling which can be both costly and time-consuming. Payment for sessions are via bank transfer or PayPal and apart from some initial administration tasks, the whole process is very simple and straight forward. I am obviously more than happy if people want to email or telephone me to discuss matters and ask questions before making up their mind.
