About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Working with Claire has been nothing short of amazing! Each session was insightful and felt like having a conversation as we slowly I unpacked everything and talked things through, this was my first time attending therapy so it was great to have someone as compassionate and empathetic as Claire helping me come to terms and guide me through processing my trauma, she gave the space to talk through my experience and reframe my past experiences and see it from a different perspective to understand how I unconsciously dealt with my trauma and how it affected me growing up. Working with Claire these few months helped me reframe my experiences and understand how I was treated wasn't my fault, I'm immensely thankful for her help, guidance and kind presence.

I was very nervous about the whole process before I started but Claire let me choose which method best suited me. Now I could not be more relaxed. Claire and myself have an open, relaxed chat about my issue and I have made progress I never thought possible. Thank you Claire.
