Recent research outcomes for online therapy acknowledges and concludes that it can be just as effective and have more benefits compared to in-person counselling.

Often you have to wait for months to receive counselling. At Better Life Online Counselling, I aim to make sessions available when you need them without a long waiting list.





I understand the time pressures of work, family and everyday life, which is why I am flexible. You determine when the sessions suit you and I will plan them in at your convenience. 

I have positioned myself to offer competitive rates to make it accessible to people.  Due to it being online you don't incur any travel costs but can stay in the comfort of your own space to receive the support that you need.

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then please contact me so I can help you.
