Skype / Zoom Video Counselling

Private Counselling over Zoom and Skype October 2021: During our national emergency, my contribution was to offer 14 years experience of Zoom & Skype Remote Counselling, suspending face-to-face sessions, and making more online appointments available. As we're moving out of Lockdown I'm continuing to offer video counselling, nationally, across Great Britain (Video/Webcam Counselling Details).

Counselling Appointments available by Next Week. I am available: Mondays, Wednesdays & Thursdays: noon to 8:50pm (last appointment 8pm). Also available Friday afternoon & evening for established (polyamorous) groups. You are welcome to select your preferred appointment day(s) and time(s), keeping in mind that this is a weekly commitment. Once we've agreed on a date and time, this appointment will be reserved for you until the end of our work (or unless we agree a change).

Service Rating

Appointments are weekly: same time, same day, same location, same counsellor.

We work for as long as we all think it's helpful, or for an agreed number of sessions if preferred.

Once you've decided on a date and time, this session is yours for as long as you need it. Your appointment time will not be offered to anyone else.

You pay for sessions weekly (cash, cheque, credit card, debit card).

To end counselling: it is preferable to bring up thoughts about ending rather than attending a session and declaring, "I'm ending today." This is because the desire to end can sometimes be a mask for something else, such as fear, inability to be angry, acting out abandonment, and so on.

When we've agreed on an end date, counselling sessions come to a close as planned.

Your email addresses will only be used to send you newly available appointment information.

    Planned Breaks.

    The following table lists the dates of my planned breaks this year (i.e. when I am not available).

    • Friday 15th October 2021 to Sunday 24th October 2021 (10 days).
    • Friday 10th December 2021 to Sunday 2nd January 2022 (24 days).

    Choose: Unlimited or Set Number of Sessions

     

    NHS facilities and some mental health charities offer you a limited or set number of sessions. The limit may be around 6 or 12 sessions. Sometimes this may mean you will end counselling before your full requirements are addressed.

    The number of sessions available to you via this service has no artificial limit. You can attend for as long, or short, as therapy is helping. Dean effective therapy approach comes from his private practice - not a service managed by a third party - and all he asks is that you commit to regular, weekly attendance.

    After we have established our counselling work, you may wish to discuss the number of sessions to be attended. This can help with budgeting, availability, or new issues that come up in counselling. We can discuss potential changes before they are implemented, allowing everyone to make an informed decision.

    Primarily, because we are working with your specific relationship, the therapeutic needs of the relationship are of the utmost importance. Financial issues are important, and we can address them within the context of what the relationship requires from counselling.

    About Dean Richardson MNCS(Accred/Reg)

    You could choose any counsellor…

    Given that this will be the most intimate and vulnerable you could be with your partner(s), you would want a skilled professional whose expertise you could trust, and whose focus would be upon your distinct relationship. Your couple or group relationship will be in good hands with Dean. He works from Great Britain, is Independent of "box 'em/shift 'em" therapy services and identifies as a gay couple counsellor. He's also easily payable in pounds sterling! Dean already had an impressive 14 years actual video webcam experience way before the first British emergency began (when suddenly counsellors added a Video option to their portfolio, having not practiced so previously! 🤔).

    What makes Dean a Distinct Counsellor

    • Dean is sensitive and effective to your sexuality / gender-identity and intimate ways of relating to each other.
    • You'll discover quickly that Dean is an informed member of your own community.
    • Dean demonstrates adept skills with lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, fluid, mixed sexuality and same-or-mixed gender relationships having over 22 years expertise as a therapist.
    • Dean avoids the role of "all-knowing expert." Experts do not learn and adapt to new situations (such as your distinct relationship). Experts simply instruct using a pre-programmed approach 🤔.
    • Dean speaks plain English (and can swear like a virtuoso if you like, or not at all if you prefer). He works cooperatively with your relationship (no unnecessary silence, or just "hmms...").
    • Dean is an accredited member of The National Counselling Society. Accreditation is a valued recognition of his substantial expertise, originally awarded 12 years ago from another professional organisation. He is a member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Union of Great Britain.
    • Dean is a British Counsellor working from the South of England. Unlike other counselling services operating from abroad 😲 Dean is actually registered, accredited, insured & supervised from within England (not from abroad).

    If any of this resonates with you and your partner(s), you should probably meet with the the Online, Gay Relationship, Video Counsellor Dean Richardson MNCS(Accred/Reg) for yourself.

     

    Dean focuses on LGBT/QIA+ relationships as a specialty in therapy. He works with individuals, couples and small groups. Plus, he's qualified to a postgraduate level (Chichester PG Diploma in Psychodynamic / Systemic Couple Counselling, IGA National Foundation in Group Counselling) as a private practice counsellor*.

    (*Note: not all counsellors, particularly those who are trained by common "Individual" Counselling qualifications, have such specific qualifications for working with couples or groups. Nor do they have experience in working with therapeutic relationships. Such counsellors may try, perhaps out of misplaced goodwill, to employ "individual" techniques but the couple or group find that the approach is ineffective. This is simply because your relationship is not part of the counsellor's primary theoretical framework nor rationale. A couple is not: "individual-counselling-multiplied-by-two." Remember to always ask your potential counsellor: "what qualifies you to work with our relationship?" and trust your instincts based on the responses you hear.
