Cocoon is a professional online counselling and therapy service run
by qualified counsellors.
Online counselling provides an opportunity for regular discussion
and sharing of thoughts, fears and feelings with a qualified
counsellor who can help you to understand and resolve what is
If you feel you might benefit from counselling, please take a look
round our website. There are many reasons why online counselling can
be positive for you:
- Perhaps you are very busy, work long hours, or travel away
frequently, and just can't commit yourself to regular face-to-face
- You may be housebound for some reason — perhaps with a disability,
or care for small children/elderly parents, and have no support
system to enable you to spend time away from home.
- If you are a deaf person,
online counselling saves the need to seek an interpreter, and
may also be useful if you or the counsellor does not use sign
- Or, maybe you are simply worried about seeing a counsellor
face-to-face? Perhaps put off by the thought of ringing for an
appointment, perhaps having to wait longer than you want, and then
feeling committed before you have even started?
As you will read in these pages, online counselling can be
appropriate in all these and other circumstances. So, if you have
reasonable access to a computer and are comfortable with
communicating by email, then you might find this method of
communicating agreeable and effective. We are all trained online
counsellors and offer an initial discussion of your problem without
any obligation. Our experience is that people find it easier than
they expected to put down their thoughts in writing - they can then
reflect on what they have written, and look back over the visible
evidence of their progress and development.
In the end it is YOU who can decide whether this method is useful,
and we are here to help however we can; feel free to ask us more
about this before you begin.
