Why 'online' relationship advice is a good idea

You may not be able to - or want to - get face-to-face advice on all things connected to your relationship. Embarrassment, financial constraints, time pressures or geographic difficulties can also play a role in keeping you out of the counselling room.

You may even worry...

  • what 'happens' in counselling
  • what questions you might get asked
  • what you're supposed to say
  • that the counsellor can read your mind
  • that he or she thinks you're mad or dramatising
  • etc

That's why I make so much information freely available on my site. I know how many people could benefit from counselling, if only they were to try.

Are you going to give it a try?

Getting confidential relationship or other advice by email, chat or telephone

No-one needs to know about it! You don't even have to give your real name if you don't want to.

So, no worries about shame, blame, unmentionable secrets and other stuff you've possibly kept hidden from other people because you even scare yourself when thinking about it.

And counsellors have heard it all before!

Here is what's most helpful to know when you're looking to get the best advice as soon as possible...

Online (relationship) counsellor

The best time to speak to a professional

During a crisis

During a crisis it's great if you can talk to someone immediately - right when you need it.

The best time is when you've calmed down just enough to be able to explain what's happened. When you're too emotional to get your words out, you may not avail yourself of the best (online) relationship advice.

When you don't seem to get better

When you're hurt, depressed, stressed, traumatised or confused and want to talk in confidence to a professional who is objective and won't judge you.

If you feel like you're just stuck in a rut and don't know how to get back on track, the support of a counsellor or therapist can really help you to start moving forwards with your life again.

When you're having problems with sex

I totally understand you may find it embarrassing to talk about that. But don't worry! Every counsellor is trained and completely comfortable talking about sex with you and helping you find a solution.

3 steps to getting expert relationship counselling

Step 1
The right time to speak to someone

It may be that you've suddenly been confronted with some bad news or you've had a major row, or you're highly emotional for some other reason.

If so, you may want to wait before talking to a counsellor or therapist until you're over the immediate crisis.

The best time to talk to a counsellor is when you're 'together' enough to explain your situation clearly.

Step 2

Reassure yourself - your counsellor is going to help you make the most of the time you spend with her/him.

Here are some further tips:

  • The feedback/ratings on the site will help guide you towards finding the right person for you. Don't worry too much about particular qualifications, we've already done the hard work so that you can be confident you're getting the help you need.
  • Your counsellor won't tell you what you should or shouldn't do. If you have to make a decision on a personal situation, we'll help you look at your options and we'll support you whatever your choices.
  • It's important that you 'click' with your counsellor. If you don't feel that you do, then you're free to simply connect with another counsellor.

Step 3

Write down your main points in a couple of sentences to help you make the most of your free minutes.

Your counsellor will also guide you to make good use of the session - particularly if you find it hard to talk.

Oh yes...

Switch off anything that could disturb you during your call: the doorbell, television, mobile phone and any other gadgets that could interfere.
