Hello and welcome to my virtual office. If I could, I’d be stretching out my hand to offer you a warm handshake and I’d give you my most welcoming smile and saying – “Please come on in and have a seat. If you were actually entering my office you would see that I have chairs set up for us. The aim here is to create a sense that we are in the same room together [as much as is possible in this virtual space!]. I invite you to make yourself comfortable and take your time reading my blog post.
This gives you a fairly typical example of how I start my online counselling sessions. I wanted to give you a little taste of what it’s like as we begin an ongoing conversation about online counselling.
