Online Therapy

Online Psychotherapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy

If you ever want or need Counselling, Psychotherapy, or Hypnotherapy in the comfort and convenience of your own home; perhaps distance is a problem; too busy; or a disability preventing you from obtaining face-to-face counselling, then online therapy may be suitable for you.

Amanda offers services both Face to Face in Clinic, as well as Distance Professional Services (also known as Telehealth, Teletherapy, E-Counselling, E-Therapy, Online Counselling, and Online Therapy, and Online Conferencing).

All you need is a computer /laptop /mobile phone (or other suitable device), strong and reliable internet, webcam, and an agreed method of online interaction such as messenger video, what’s app video, face time, zoom, doxy.me or other.  Just be mindful about which platform you choose in terms of encryption and security.  This should be discussed prior to commencement.

4. Mobile counselling

Our modern world is all about convenience.  In certain circumstances Amanda may be available to provide Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy in the comfort of your own home or a selective location.  Some people prefer Counselling services outdoors whilst walking, or Hypnotherapy in the comfort of their own home.  All that is needed is a quiet place with 2 chairs.  This needs to be discussed with and approved by Amanda.  The main determining factor is location /distance. As a general rule Amanda will only be able to provide a mobile service within a certain range of surrounding suburbs.  If interested you may discuss this with Amanda to see if your location qualifies.
