Portal Counselling Facilities
From December 2019 Paul will be offering portal counselling services using the Facebook Portal facility, using either Whatsapp or Facebook connection protocols.
Initially, our portal counselling facilities will be available for the delivery of both the Thrive Programme or our Changing Limiting Beliefs course. Following this initial launch period we will examine the possibility of extending the service to a wider range of therapies.
Portal offers fully encrypted end-to-end connections between users and so is suitable for the delivery of confidential counselling.
We have recognised the limitatons of being physically located in just one geographical area in the West Midlands and see the portal as a way of being able to extend our range of services to users situated anywhere in the world, the only provisio being that clients have the necessary equipment to meaningfully engage in the therapeutic process and a private space to work within.
Supporting the Therapeutic Alliance
Research clearly demonstrates the singular significance of the ‘therapeutic alliance’ in producing postive therapy outcomes. By using the ‘Portal TV’ version of this system (where a full sized 50″ TV is used for communication) we are able to interact with clients in a meaningful way which positivly supports this crucial factor. The in-built zoom and tracking facilities of the Portal camera allow us to move around the clinic room, make use of our A boards and generally creates a sense of being inside the clinic, all of which help improve the remote therapy experience.
Portal Counselling Fees
Portal counselling fees are the same as our standard prices with all sessions lasting one hour and are by appointment only.
FREE Initial Consultations via Portal
We offer all prospective clients a FREE initial assessment to chat about your problems or your personal development using our Portal facility. During this 50 minute consultation we will discuss the various options that are available to you and make a considered recommendation based on your individual personal circumstances.
At TranceForm we acknowledge that therapy & counselling is a collaboration between therapist and client so it’s very important to be able to ‘meet’ over the portal PRIOR to agreeing any kind of help.
Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking work with us, including both the financial and personal implications.
