Counselling via web-camera and Skype

Counselling via web-camera and Skype, in the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, etc.

with Dr Jim Byrne

Welcome to my online counselling service

honetpieI’m Dr Jim Byrne, and I’ve been counselling individuals over the internet for more than sixteen years.

In that time, I’ve helped hundreds of individuals with problems of depression, anxiety, anger, self-confidence, stress and couple conflict.

Many of those individuals consulted me via Skype; and many others consulted me exclusively by email, or sometimes by a combination of email counselling and telephone counselling.

Would you like me to help you with your current problems?

If you are unable to visit me in Hebden Bridge, then the next best option is to talk over the internet, using a good quality web-camera.

A single 45 minute session costs GBP £50.00p.

To set up a day and time, please email me at: drjwbyrne@gmail.com

Here’s a recent client testimonial about Skype counselling:

♣ “Dear Jim, I just had to write to thank you for your help with my stress problem, about my conflict at work problem.  My boss held a meeting of the team yesterday, and I was able to explain my role in recent difficulties, because I had taken your advice and wrote it all out in a journal, and analysed it until I understood the entire dynamic.  I was also well-exercised, and well-nourished, and I had drunk three glasses of water by the time the meeting began.  I also used the assertive communication phrases you taught me!  It went so well, I could not believe how different it felt.  And you have probably saved my career in the process!  Thanks for a really surprising and delighting outcome!”

K.I.M., Toronto, Canada. (Two sessions of Skype counselling for problems of conflict at work).

WebcamAccording to the International Society for Mental Health Online, the advantages of ‘online counselling’ include:

“1. You may feel freer to be yourself online.

“2. You may feel more comfortable receiving coaching, counselling or therapy in the privacy of your home.

“8. You can contact your coach/counsellor by telephone, thus maximising ease of communication, but you do not have to present yourself in their office, or “look them in the eye”, which can be an advantage with problems that invoke a sense of embarrassment.

“9. There are more coaches/therapists to choose from online. And it is also possible to see them “face-to-face” by using video conferencing if you have a web camera.

“10. You can email your coach/therapist any time of day, and especially when you feel the need for help.

♣ “Thanks Jim.  I’m feeling better – much happier – because … I’ve made some of the dietary changes you recommended, I’m doing some physical exercise, and also I am working on the psychological exercises you recommended…”.

G.S., Prague, Czech Republic. (Two sessions of Skype counselling and one of email counselling, for depression and discouragement).

Woman-on-Skype“12. While you can see your coach/counsellor over a webcam, you do not need to be concerned that you will bump into them on the streets of your hometown tomorrow! So there is greater anonymity.”

Good enough counsellors provide a healing relationship for their counselling clients: How can counselling relationships help the client to grow and have better relationships in the real world?  “In the world according to Bowlby, our lives, from the cradle to the grave, revolve around intimate attachments.  Although our stance toward such attachments is shaped most influentially by our first relationships, we are also malleable.  If our early involvements have been problematic, then subsequent relationships can offer second chances, perhaps affording us the potential to love, feel, and reflect with the freedom that flows from secure attachment.  (Counselling and) psychotherapy, at its best, provides just such a healing relationship”.

Dr David Wallin, Attachment in Psychotherapy, 2007, page 1 (3)

♣ “Dear Jim, You are the best therapist I know. I find your thinking and your models to be better than anyone else’s. And I have great faith in your ability to help me to work through whatever problems come up in my life.  You have guided me out of some very dark times – sometimes as if you just waved a magic wand – and sometimes leading me, step by step, by the hand – and I have told all my friends over the years how much you helped me to overcome my depression and jealous rages.  You are one of the most compassionate and empathic people I know.  And one of the bravest.  You never allow your ego to get in the way. Over the past ten years, I have always felt you in the background of my life, on a daily basis, as a solid pillar of support – even when we went for months or years without any contact”.

L.C., Hong Kong (36 sessions of mixed contact, comprising telephone counselling, email counselling and Skype counselling, over a period of twelve years).
