Hamilton Sargent Counsellor

So, you're interested in having your counselling online?

Well, I'm Hamilton and I help people like you to find ways forwards when a relationship goes less smoothly. Due to specialist training, I'm able to offer one to one confidential counselling online, so you can be sure our sessions together will be safe and supportive.

  • Create a comfortable and private space in your own home from which to attend therapy
  • Attend therapy at a time that suits you with no need to commute to your sessions
  • No reliance on one location - if you move or spend time somewhere else in the UK, therapy can still continue
  • Secure and encrypted platforms offers a safe, confidential space and peace of mind
  • Use the technology that feels right for you with guidance provided to help you set up
  • Some clients feel more comfortable and able to open up within online therapy vs in person therapy
  • Do you have a device to use for sessions with a working camera and microphone?
  • Do you have a stable enough internet connection for video calls?
  • Are you comfortable using technology?
  • Do you have a private and confidential space to hold our sessions (if this is challenging it could be, for example, a car)?
  • How much we can see of each other may be limited - we may see limited body language cues from one another, how do you feel about this?
  • Do you have a preference for counselling in person or to not see me during our sessions? I also offer in person counselling in Chiswick, West London and telephone counselling!

We will hold our counselling sessions for 50 minutes at the same time each week.
If you need more flexibility I also offer 30 and 75 minutes sessions.

I recommend that we use Zoom or Doxy.me for our sessions after carrying out extensive research on currently available platforms.

If you strongly feel that you would like to use another platform please raise it with me and we can discuss this together.
