Sea Psychotherapy

...is available online. I offer individual psychotherapy to children and young people online, as well as consultations, reviews, reflective thinking and supervision with parents, carers and childcare professionals.

Why work online?

Due to social distancing restrictions, all sessions are currently being provided online. People choose to access therapy online 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/carer might have 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 an online medium to access therapy, your needs and desires can be discussed and accommodated.

Online Contract


The terms and conditions of the Sea Psychotherapy Contract apply equally to therapy/consultations conducted online and you should read these carefully. In additional, the following conditions apply to sessions conducted online:

  • On the morning of the session, I will send you/your child a secure link. Simply click on the link to access the private online meeting room
  • You/your child can choose if you/they would prefer video messaging (seen) or voice call or instant chat (not seen)
  • It is your responsibility to arrange a private space where you/your child will not be disturbed, interrupted or overheard to conduct the online session and I will do the same 
  • I will be available online at the agreed time and for the agreed duration of the session, whatever time we connect
  • I will not be available for online contact at any other times
  • If the online connection is lost, it is your/your child's responsibility to reconnect so that you/they maintain control of the connection throughout the session
  • You/your child should agree what you would like to happen if the online connection cannot be maintained (e.g. switch to email, instant messenger or telephone) contact, rather than abandon the session
