You may prefer to write things down and find it easier to express yourself this way as opposed to saying things out loud.
E-therapy (email therapy) is ideal for this reason and offers you the time and space to reflect on your thoughts and feelings at a pace that suits you.
E-therapy occurs at different times (asynchronous) so it allows you to think about what you want to say before you say it.
Just knowing that there is someone there to receive, acknowledge and respond to your problems without judgment can provide an enormous sense of comfort and support to anyone attempting to overcome a difficult period in their life.
Once I have received your mail, I can carefully consider what you have shared with me and respond therapeutically offering information and considerations for you to then reflect upon. You may choose to receive a single email exchange or a series of emails. We can discuss this during our initial conversation or at any time during your therapy.
Part of our initial conversation will be to agree on a date when your email can be sent to me and I will respond within 24hours of receiving it. This then gives us a better idea of when we can expect each others email to arrive.
Another benefit of e-therapy is that as you have everything written down you won’t forget or miss things that are said and you can re-read your email exchanges at a later point if you need further reinforcement and/or clarity. You can set up a fully encrypted email account here for free.
