People often drink as a way of dealing with aspects of their life that they’re not happy with. That can be anything – from feeling stressed and anxious, to being unhappy in a relationship or unfulfilled at work, and so on.
So in order to break the reliance on alcohol, therapy will explore some different ways of dealing with the difficult aspects of your life.
With practice, you’ll feel yourself handling life differently, and approaching alcohol differently, not being dependent on it in order to cope, but coping better just as you are, without the consequences of heavy drinking making things even harder.
Live video is just a different way of delivering therapy.
You make an appointment with your therapist as usual, but of course you don’t need to leave your home, you don’t need to drive to a clinic, find somewhere to park, then get back again.
Sessions are conducted via Skype video, or you can choose an audio call if you prefer more anonymity. Each session lasts for an hour.
An audio recording of the session is available if you wish, allowing you to listen back to everything said by you and your therapist. From this you can clarify anything you’ve forgotten, which is an advantage over other therapy methods.
You can stay in regular contact with your therapist through our journal facility – where you can record your thoughts and feelings related to your drinking, which will help you to make changes.
To help you decide if online therapy is for you, we offer a discounted first session. Of course, if you’re not satisfied with any session, then we offer a full refund. If you’ve got any more queries about it, read our frequently asked questions.
