Hamilton Sargent Counsellor

So, you're interested in having your counselling over the phone?

Well, I'm Hamilton and I help people like you to find ways forwards when a relationship in your life becomes difficult to navigate. Due to specialist training, I'm able to offer one to one confidential counselling on the telephone, so you can be sure our sessions together will be safe and supportive.

Why choose telephone counselling?

  • A good option if you have limited or intermittent internet signal
  • Phone counselling has had a presence within counselling for many years
  • Some people find it easier to express themselves in not seeing their therapist, perhaps due to an increased feeling of anonymity
  • Create a comfortable and private space in your own home from which to attend therapy or even have therapy whilst walking
  • 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

What is there to consider?

  • Do you have a device or landline to use for your sessions?
  • Do you have adequate reception for a phone call?
  • Do you have a private and confidential space to hold our sessions (working on the phone together may give you more flexibility of where this might be - e.g. in a car)?
  • How comfortable do you feel speaking on the phone in general?
  • Would you prefer that we see each other within your sessions? I also offer in person counselling in Chiswick, West London and online counselling!
  • Do you have a preference for counselling in person?

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

Zoom can be used for an audio call (without cameras turned on) as an encrypted alternative to telephone counselling.

  • Secure and end to end encrypted
  • Downloadable app for computer, tablet or phone on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android
  • New meeting link sent each week with extra security measures such as room lock and waiting room used

In experiencing therapy myself, I found it was such a nurturing and life changing experience and I decided I wanted to help others to thrive rather than just survive, and to move towards the life they wish to lead.
