Would you like some extra support to help you to deal with challenges which impact your day to day life? Whether you are experiencing a crisis or facing a long term personal challenge online counselling can give you an opportunity to access counselling support at a time and in a way which is convenient for you. If it is difficult for you to find travel to counselling perhaps because of distance or pressures of time or perhaps health issues mean you are housebound or you have young children or you have moved to another country for work, then you can use online counselling to access counselling at flexible times wherever you are.* I have flexible daytime availability for new clients for online counselling. I offer online counselling via email, instant messaging or audio options.
Many issues can be supported through online counselling e.g. stress, depression, loneliness, self-esteem, relationship problems and many more. In my experience online counselling is as effective as face to face counselling and sometimes even more beneficial e.g. in working with shame and anxiety.
My name is Elaine Arthur and my private Counselling and Coaching Practice is called Transforming Together. I am a Registered Counsellor British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and an Accredited Registered Counsellor with the Association of Christian Counsellors UK. I have undertaken specialist training in Online and Telephone Counselling and I am qualified to work on a one to one basis with adults (over 18’s).

If for any reason I believe that your issues cannot be helped via online counselling then I will explain the reasons to you and make every effort to suggest a suitable alternative.
Free initial assessment – The starting point for all counselling is to have a free initial no obligation email or phone assessment lasting up to 30 minutes which will then be followed up by a more detailed assessment/introductory session of 1 hour. The fee for the 1 hour depends on the kind of online counselling you prefer. See below for details.
