Simon Bishop.On-Line Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. MSc. MBACP (Accredited)
I offer an on-line therapeutic service via Skype.
I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and an accredited member of the BACP offering an on-line therapeutic service via Skype.
People generally turn to counselling or psychotherapy when they are looking for a way to understand what is going on in their lives. My on-line practice works towards trying to help you gain this understanding by providing you with a safe and confidential place to talk. Here the focus is about what is on your mind both at a conscious and unconscious level. Together we can try to make sense of patterns in your life and some of the thoughts and feelings that trouble you. This form of counselling can be used with a variety of issues such as:
Traumatic life experiences
Long term emotional difficulties.
I offer online therapy via the Microsoft Skype video chat application. When participating in online therapy it is important that you have access to a private space where you will not be over heard or interrupted during your therapy session.
Online therapy offers benefits of convenience at many levels but there are some important issues to bear in mind when using this medium for therapeutic purposes. For instance, online therapy is not appropriate for people with serious psychiatric health issues or if you are in crisis and experiencing suicidal thoughts.
Following your first contact we will arrange an appointment for a brief fifteen minute consultation. This allows us both to get a sense of why you are coming for help and how we might work together.
I offer short (6 weeks) and longer term work. If my Service is appropriate for us to work together we will arrange to meet on a specified day and time every week for a 50 minute session for an agreed duration.
