What is telephone counselling? 

An Introduction to Counselling by John McLeod“A trouble shared is a trouble halved” – and it is my aim to help to greatly reduce your problems.

Telephone counselling is just like regular face-to-face counselling, except that it’s conducted entirely over the telephone system.  According to Dr John McLeod: “…telephone counselling agencies … do much more counselling than any other kind of counselling agency”!  Thus it is clear that there is nothing unusual or out of the ordinary about telephone counselling.

Furthermore, the outcomes achieved via telephone counselling are comparable to those achieved through face-to-face counselling.  Again, according to Dr McLeod: Outcome Telephone-counsellingstudies have found that “…consistently two-thirds or more of (telephone) clients have reported high levels of satisfaction (Stein and Lambert 1984)[1].


Renata’s Telephone Counselling Service

renata-taylor-byrne-lifestyle-coachHello and welcome to this updated page about my telephone counselling service.

My name is Renata Taylor-Byrne, and I have spent more than thirty years helping many individuals with their personal and professional development needs, issues and skills.

I have worked as a coach, teacher, counsellor and mentor for many years and I combine all of those roles in most of my client-cases.

What’s the advantage of telephone counselling? It is very convenient for you because you do not have to travel to see me and we can prearrange a convenient meeting time for the phone conversation.

If you want a coach/counsellor to support you as you try to explore, understand and organise aspects of your life that you want to change, control or accept, then I can help you.  This includes stress and anxiety, including health anxiety; sleep coaching; diet, exercise and relaxation problems; self-confidence; self-esteem; self-assertive communication in your relationships, at home and in work; and so on.


Crossroads-and-counsellingI teach and coach and counsel primarily in the following areas of client-concern:

Assertive communication; Stress and anxiety management; Confidence building and self-esteem; Thinking skills; Planning and goal setting; Lifestyle self-management (including diet and nutrition, and Eastern forms of physical exercise – and how to discipline yourself in the management of diet and exercise); Relaxation techniques, meditation, relationship skills; and many other areas of personal and professional concern.
