Writing for Therapy
We offer an online counselling service that combines a traditional counselling approach with the use of Expressive Writing (aka journalling/writing exercises). This means that after each counselling session we will give you one or two writing exercises that are specifically designed to help you move forward.
Format: We offer this service via email (see below), Skype/phone and instant messenger.
Approach: We use an integrative approach, with a focus on Person Centred Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Expressive Writing.
Session length: Sessions include one email exchange (if via email); or run for 50 minutes if via Skype, phone or instant messager.
Cost: £40 per session.
To use the counselling service via email, no appointment is necessary (we will respond to your email in three working days). Just follow five simple steps:
2. Login – select your login details, complete the optional intake form, and select the therapist you'd like to email.
3. Begin writing or attach a file with writing. Please write about the problem/issue you would like to focus on. What your thoughts about it are, and what you would like to receive from your therapist.
4. Make a payment via PayPal – The price is £40, and your therapist will spend 50 minutes evaluating and responding to your writing. Please note that you can use any major credit or debit card and do not have to be signed up to Paypal.
5. Await a response from your therapist – within three working days*.
