Let's work together to support your emotional well-being. Book now for a personalised counselling experience tailored just for you.

My Therapeutic Approach

I believe in the power of a personalised, client-centred approach to therapy. I understand that each individual's journey is unique, and I am committed to providing a tailored experience that respects your autonomy and expertise in your own life.


My therapeutic framework includes a Client-Centred Approach: I believe that you are the expert on your own life and experiences. My client-centred approach empowers you to take control of your healing process by providing guidance, support, and understanding. I blend this with Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  techniques to help you identify and change unhelpful patterns in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that may be contributing to your symptoms.

Understanding Virtual Therapy

When deciding which counselling format is the best fit for your needs and preferences, it's crucial to consider the benefits and drawbacks of each option. Jodie James Counselling Services is committed to offering a variety of counselling options, ensuring you can select the approach that best supports your journey towards emotional well-being and personal growth.

Benefits of Zoom/Video-Call Counselling

Zoom/video-call counselling offers several advantages over other counselling formats:

  1. Accessibility: Video-call counselling enables you to connect with your counsellor from anywhere, eliminating geographical barriers and making therapy more accessible to those with mobility challenges or limited transportation options.

  2. Flexibility: Scheduling video-call sessions can be more convenient than in-person appointments since there is no need to factor in travel time or be in a specific location. This flexibility can be especially helpful for those with busy schedules or varying commitments.

  3. Visual Connection: Zoom/video-call counselling allows for visual interaction, enabling you and your counsellor to observe facial expressions and body language. This added layer of non-verbal communication can enhance the therapeutic process and deepen the connection between you and your counsellor.

Considerations for Zoom/Video-Call Counselling

While Zoom/video-call counselling offers numerous benefits, it is essential to consider how this format compares to other options such as face-to-face, phone, and walking sessions:

  1. Technical Difficulties: Video-call connections can sometimes be unstable, leading to interruptions or poor video quality. In such cases, face-to-face or phone counselling may offer a more stable and uninterrupted therapeutic experience.

  2. Privacy: Ensuring a private and quiet space for your video-call sessions can be more challenging than attending face-to-face counselling in a designated therapy room. It is essential to find a suitable environment where you feel comfortable and secure during your sessions.

  3. Atmosphere: While video-call counselling allows you to connect from your chosen space, it may not provide the same structured environment as face-to-face sessions or the calming, natural setting of walking sessions.


If you are interested in Zoom/video-call counselling or would like to discuss which format may be best suited to your needs, please don't hesitate to contact Jodie James Counselling Services. We are here to offer compassionate, empathetic, and professional guidance, helping you navigate life's challenges and achieve your full potential.
