About Phone Counseling
Not all types of counseling are suitable for phone counseling. Typically, 1st time assessments and groups are done in person. Sometimes phone counseling or regular phone consultation can be done as an adjunct to regular therapy. The usual confidentiality issues are applicable in phone counseling as in in-person counseling.
Contact the individual therapist to find out what that person’s policy is on phone counseling and consulting.
