Exclusive Couple Counselling via Webcam

Skype / Zoom Video Counselling

Private Counselling over Zoom and Skype - June 2021: During our national emergency, my contribution was to offer 13 years experience of Zoom & Skype Remote Counselling, suspending face-to-face sessions, and making more appointments available. As we move out of Lockdown I'll continue offering national video counselling, helping us to transition back (Video/Webcam Counselling Details).

As a Specialist Video (Zoom & Skype) Counsellor, centred around Portsmouth to Southampton to Petersfield (Hampshire, UK) and as far east as Chichester (West Sussex), Dean Richardson MNCS(Accred/Reg) set up physical location private practices to cater for the local needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual and mix-sexuality couples in the local region.

To reach a wider audience, Dean has been working with LGBT/QIA+ couples using video conferencing technology for more than 13 years.

When you’ve searched Google for “a couple counsellor near me” or “LGBT counselling near me” and have failed to find one who suits your specific relationship needs, consider Dean’s professional remote/webcam-based services instead. 100s of couples have already done so:-

LGBT Couples Counseling

Celebrating his 22nd year in practice, Dean reaches couples across the United Kingdom using secure, proven video technology.

It may be an option you and your partner have not considered before – expecting to leave home, drive a way, park the car, walk to the consultant’s rooms, wait until the appointment time and then work for 50 minutes.

Whereas with video technology, you sit in front of your computer around 5 minutes before the session, and at the session time your video kicks in and the counsellor is right there.

No travel expenses, no parking costs, no waiting.

And whilst some think that they wouldn’t like to use Zoom or Skype, once the conversation gets going you forget the technology is there:-

A Story of Car Rental 🚗

Over a decade ago, Dean took a holiday over to the USA. When his flight landed in Las Vegas he went to the car rental company to pick up his car. Waiting in a queue people were being directed to various cubicles to talk with the rental agent and as Dean reached the front of the queue he was directed to a machine with a television, a camera and a keyboard. Where was the agent?!


The screen sprung to life and a mature American woman on the screen gave a cheery “Hi there!” and I saw that she was in her home. She explained how the situation would work. She’d ask me questions, I’d scan in some documents some bits of my passport, sometimes I’d type a couple of things on the keyboard. The whole matter was done in a few minutes and my car keys were unlocked from a part of the machine.


Whilst I was nervous (I’d never actually used video technology) the woman was clearly experienced in doing this, and although she was not physically present her personality and experience was very clearly present.


It inspired Dean to wonder if his practice of focussing upon the therapeutic needs of LGBT Couples could be brought to a wider audience using similar video technology. Shortly, he achieved this with his first Skype-based case working with a couple long-distance (three people calling in from three countries). 


Take a chance, trust on Dean’s experience, and see if you and your partner enjoy the benefits of meeting with your couple counsellor online.

The security gate to The Cove Therapy Rooms remains locked at all times (intercom is for residential flats only).
