Your Online Therapist is a convenient way to speak to an experienced, professional therapist, via Skype, WhatsApp or Zoom video calls, so you can fit therapy around your everyday life.
Therapy via video call means you can get all the benefits of an appointment with experienced psychotherapist Peter Banczyk at a location and time that suits you and your lifestyle.
THE BENEFITS OF ONLINE THERAPY
You might be wondering: how can therapy through a screen work? Well, there are plenty of plus points.
- Feel at ease: The great thing about having online therapy via video call is that you can have your therapy session whenever and wherever you want to: you'll be completely comfortable in your own familiar surroundings.
- Confidentiality: In your own surroundings, you can relax safe in the knowledge that nobody's going to see you popping in and out of a therapist's office.
- Feeling of anonymity: It's important to feel like you can open up to your therapist - after all, that's what makes for successful therapy. It's also really important to feel safe with your therapist. For some people, chatting over video call, rather than in an office with me, helps them to open up because it feels safer - more anonymous. For example, some clients who may have suffered from trauma or feel embarrassed about talking bout their problems because they feel a greater level of anonymity via video call.
