What is remote counselling?
Sometimes you may be unable to attend face-to-face counselling sessions, this could be for a number of reasons (e.g. lockdown, you are unwell, temporarily unable to travel). Remote counselling enables you to continue getting support from TIC+ counsellors without having to go into school or public buildings. One of the ways we can do this is with a telephone call. You can talk to your counsellor about anything that is impacting your life.
What will I need for telephone counselling?
Some people find it challenging to talk face-to-face; remote phone calls offer the opportunity for supportive talks with trained counsellors. Phone calls can be made on any mobile, but please consider the reception in your area. Counsellors will always manage the calls; all you need to do is be available to answer the arranged call. This should be in a safe space where you can talk without being overheard or interrupted. If you do not have a mobile it may be possible to arrange to borrow a phone from a trusted person (e.g. a parent/grandparent).
