This type of counselling is considered to
be the usual type of counselling which is
on offer. It involves the Counsellor and
client sitting down in close proximity of
each other, at a designated time and location,
and discussing the issues of the client.
Some people prefer this form of counselling,
but others may be restricted by time, money,
or feel embarrassed about talking to someone
In these cases there are other methods of
counselling available: Video Counselling;
Counselling by Phone; by Email; Instant Message;
and even by Text.
Some Cousellors believe that it is important
to see the body language of the client, which
can be so but it would not be helpful for
the client if they were unable to, or not
want to, meet face-to-face. In this case
a home visit would be possible, or any of
the other methods already mentioned.
The other methods could simply be used, at
the start, as just a way for the Counsellor
to earn the trust of the client to then have
face to face meetings later on, or carry
on the same way.
What is the best method for the client, is
what is important.
