Online therapy

Why online therapy?

Online psychotherapy has become an increasingly popular option, especially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing and health safety measures. It offers the convenience of having therapy at a time and place that suits you, and is also cost effective. This service is offered to both international and local clients and is offered in English only.

How does online therapy work?

The platforms I use are Skype and Zoom video as I have personally found them to be user-friendly, stable, have good call quality, and are secure, as data is encrypted. All you need is a computer, tablet or mobile phone with these applications installed, and a reliable, fast Internet connection.

How much does it cost?

For local clients, I charge within medical aid rates for a 50 minute session. For international clients, sessions cost $60 (US) or the equivalent in your local currency.

Can I claim back from medical aid / medical insurance?

For local clients, if you are on a medical aid, you are usually able to claim back, but please check with your medical aid first. For international clients, you are usually unable to, but please check this with your medical insurance.

How is payment made?

Payment is due before the session in order to secure the time slot for you. Payment is either by PayPal or EFT.

How do I make an appointment?

Please email me and I will send you a client information sheet to fill in and return. You will be able to specify which days / times suit you. For international clients, please note that I am based in South Africa, which is in time zone GMT +2, so not all appointment times will be available to you, but I will endeavour to accommodate your needs. I will then send you my details and at the agreed upon time, you call in to start your session.
