About me

I specialise in counselling by email.

You choose the right moment to work through what's happening in your life, rather than be tied to a set time and date for counselling sessions. I've found that email counselling provides time to reflect on feelings, and put them into words.

It provides some anonymity, which may help if you feel anxious when talking to someone else about your problems.

You will have a record of the email conversations we've had, so that you can refer to them at any time, even after our counselling sessions have ended.

You have the freedom to choose the right time to send me your email, and I reply to you within 48 hours.

Many people send one email per week, but you can decide to email me more, or less frequently.

Each email exchange is priced at £35.00, and the initial consultation is free.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • I’m Jerry Livings. As a client, I found that counselling by email helped me to express my feelings, thoughts and worries in a safe environment. After qualifying as a counsellor, I continued with specialist training and developed a solution focused and person centred approach, using email to communicate with my clients.
  • I’m an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society (MNCS), and a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
  • I completed specialist training in online counselling, using Webcam, Instant Message, Email and Voice Only, with the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online.
  • Previously, I’ve been a Counsellor with MIND, and I’ve worked with the Samaritans. I’ve helped many people with all sorts of problems, some of which I have experienced myself. Some of these problems include Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Anger, Suicidal feelings, Loneliness.
