Get Started

Online therapy can provide you with the support you need to make important life changes; your partner in brainstorming and an ‘ear’ to listen to you, whenever you need it.

Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you’d just like to talk a bit (or write) about whether online counselling can help you. Click here for contact info.

There are a few circumstances that can make face-to-face counselling more suitable than online.  *If you’ve checked to make sure your situation is not listed here, and had a look at the Fees information page, you can get started anytime.

Laptop and a cup of coffee To begin online counselling, please click here to sign up for a free Hushmail account and send me a short message (to let me know you’re interested and ask any questions you might have) to lorraine.irlam@hushmail.com. (All messages exchanges from your hushmail account to mine are private and encrypted).

I’ll send you an Informed Consent Agreement. Once you’ve had a chance to look it over and ask any questions, you can send me a message from your Hushmail account.

Tell me about what’s going on in your life, your hopes, your dreams, your struggles. Let me know about what you’d like to get out of counselling and the changes you’d like to see in your life. Anything you like. Let me know a little (or a lot!) about you and your life. (And please don’t ever worry about spelling, grammar or punctuation.) Please remember to let me know if you’d like to request a reduced sliding scale fee.

(Should you have any questions regarding fees, privacy policy or the informed consent agreement, or if you wish to clarify or discuss any concerns or questions before you begin counselling, please do not hesitate to contact me.)

I’ll send you your first counselling reply within 1 to 3 business days. Watch your inbox for my reply from lorraine.irlam@hushmail.com. Please add lorraine.irlam@hushmail.com to your address book to prevent it from being blocked by spam filters.

So, if you’re ready, grab yourself a cup of tea, pull up a chair, and begin the first step towards the changes you want to see in your life!

I look forward to “meeting” you!
