Things to consider
At-home therapy makes counselling accessible to people who may have found it difficult to travel to sessions. It is convenient and can save you travel time and money.
Those who receive counselling at home report feeling more comfortable and relaxed as a result of staying within their own surroundings, this can make it easier to open up.
There are some important things to consider before committing to counselling at home;
- Do you feel comfortable, safe and relaxed within your home environment?
- You will need a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted or overheard.
- The home environment can be distracting. For the duration of sessions it is
important to limit these distractions as much as possible.
This means putting mobile phones to one side,
not using other electronic devices during session,
switching off televisions and radios and not consuming cigarettes,
food or alcohol during sessions.
Overall, we both need to feel comfortable and at ease during sessions.
Confidentiality needs to be protected.
If you are unsure as to whether this will suit you, please feel free to give me a call and we can talk it over. I also offer a free initial meeting which may give you a better idea as to how you feel about at home counselling before we begin sessions.
