What is E-counselling?
E-motion provides counselling either by email or live chat with a counsellor so you can choose what kind of messaging will suit you best.
You can write as much, or as little as you like during the week, or at any time that suits you and the counsellor will respond to you on an agreed day.
The advantage of counselling by email is that you can have time to think about what you want to say and you can look back on both your own and your counsellor’s messages. It can be a great way to get things off your chest and vent in private with someone who can help you through the minefield of your emotions and support you to cope with things that are troubling you.
Live chat IM
We also offer live chat sessions where you meet your counsellor online once a week at an agreed time. It’s a live conversation with text instead of f2f with the advantage of having an immediate response from your counsellor instead of waiting a few days for a reply.
You can also just book a one-off live IM chat with your counsellor too. For more information just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
