Sea Psychotherapy is available via Skype. I offer individual psychotherapy to older (usually 16+) young people using Skype as well as consultations, reviews, reflective thinking and supervision with parents, carers & childcare professionals.  

If you would like more information about connecting via Skype please select the Contact Sea Psychotherapy form from the main menu or state that you would like to use Skype when you complete the electronic referral form. 

Sea Psychotherapy & Skype 

Clients might opt to access therapy via Skype for a number of reasons. It might be that they live too far from their chosen therapist to travel there regularly or at all. They may be unable to access therapy in the traditional way due to a physical disability. They or their parent or carer might have other commitments which mean that they want to reduce time spent travelling to and from therapy, perhaps so that they miss less time from school and/or work. They might find traditional face-to-face in the room type therapy too intense or they might not feel ready for this kind of intimacy in the relationship. They might want to access therapy but not want to be seen. Whatever the reason for choosing Skype as a method of connecting, your needs and desires can be discussed and accommodated.
