Do you know of someone who needs help with depression or loneliness yet is unable to leave home because of small children, elderly parents or incapacity? Does travelling at night, in bad weather or busy traffic fill you with dread? Or are you a businessperson with no time to spare, or someone who lives in a small rural community without easy access to counselling services?
If you answer yes to any of these questions telephone counselling might be of interest to you. Frances Kucharsky M.A. ( Psych.) of LifeCounselling has just expanded her services to include counselling by telephone. " There are more and more people in need of help who are unable to access it in conventional ways due to family commitments, health issues, time constraints or geographical factors. As well, people suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia or agoraphobia often find it difficult to commit to appointments outside the home", says Frances.
In the past, Frances notes, telephone counselling was used primarily by clients with a high public profile who wanted to preserve anonymity or by entertainers and artists with erratic schedules. " LifeCounselling by Phone " offers an innovative way for people from all walks of life to benefit from contact with an experienced therapist from the comfort of their home or hotel room. Common modern day challenges such as depression, loneliness, anxiety, stress, and relationship difficulties can be successfully addressed through telephone counselling.
Frances tells me that this service is especially suited to two main groups of people - those who are housebound for any number of reasons, and business people who are unable to make time in their busy schedules to get the help they need. For the travelling businessperson, especially, LifeCounselling by Phone can transform those often tiresome evening in a hotel room into valuable personal time for recharging or self-betterment.
This service provides privacy, effectiveness, anonymity and most of all - convenience. If you have access to the Internet, video-conferencing psychotherapy is another service offered. Call for details regarding these services or to arrange an appointment or press interview.
