Online Counselling

Online counselling: It is getting easier for students to seek help

The case for using online counselling services as an additional fixture is strong. Considering the fact that Generation Y are digital natives, offering an online counselling service that enables students to get help as and when they want it is an appealing option. Kirsten, a past BA and MA student at The University of Liverpool said that partaking in sessions via online mediums such as email and instant messaging would encourage students to seek help, so long as it was ‘proven to be as private and secure as face-to-face counselling.’
