Self-Isolating / Shielding.

If, due to local or national lockdown, you’re unable to leave your home or travel too far away from it, you can feel a sense of assurance in the knowledge that your Skype Counsellor is still available to you weekly.

Without needing to leave the safety of your home, without having to travel, your counselling sessions can continue with the counsellor you’ve come to trust.


Know that you have access to your counsellor weekly. Counselling the safety of your home can be a relief. Those who struggle with agoraphobia, have life-limiting conditions, or who have responsibilities within their home find Skype / Zoom Counselling valuable.


Know that you have access to your counsellor weekly from the privacy of your office (or residence if, for example, at university).

Counselling from your office can be a relief knowing you don’t have to travel (during rush-hour) to your counsellor’s office nor location.

Still at university, knowing you can access your counsellor when you get home or from another secure and private location.

Disabled/Wheelchair Users.

Accessing your counsellor from your home can grow to be as effective as meeting face-to-face. Sometimes we find travelling out of the house regularly to be helpful. Sometimes making the choice to put aside the strain of getting into/out of your car is better. Meeting online can be a relief.

Dean is a skilled and experienced counsellor, initiating his online video counselling practice in 2007 (Skype, Zoom etc). He began developing his remote telecommunication skills way back in the early 2000s at IBM (North Harbour). After attaining his first qualifying diploma in counselling, Dean added additional professional development in “Delivering Therapy Online” back in 2007.

Dean’s counselling services are available to Portsmouth, Havant, Waterlooville, areas in Hampshire and across the UK. Although local residents make use of Dean’s therapy skills, his caseload also contains at least 20% of clients from farther afield (several different towns & counties and some different countries).

Video technology counselling online is available only through Dean’s private practice (it’s not available via the NHS nor EAPs).
