Telephone counselling is carried out via your mobile or landline phone. You’ll need a private space to have the conversation. If using a mobile, ensure a good signal and enough charge on your battery for the length of the session. Headphones are helpful.


Video counselling is carried out via a secure and encrypted web platform (Doxy). You’ll need a private space to have the conversation. Use a laptop, computer, tablet or phone. Make sure that your microphone and camera are working and you have a good signal. Headphones are helpful.
