Coronavirus (Covid-19) update for current and future clients




In times of crisis, or any kind of unexpected event can often be traumatic or at the very least create fear, uncertainty and other negative emotions which can have a major impact on one’s emotional and mental well-being.

To help provide additional support and resources to people living or staying in Chiang Mai we are expanding our online counselling and therapy services to 7 days per week for new and existing clients looking for a therapist working online in Chiang Mai.

With many years’ experience providing effective counselling and therapy services online to helping international clients across many different countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and the UK we offer a wide range of online therapy services including help for anxiety, fear, depression, loneliness, marital or relationship problems and many more. Many of these negative emotions and states have been triggered or increased more recently for people following current fears and concerns relating to health, employment, financial insecurity, isolation and social disconnection.

Video call sessions for online counselling use one of the following platforms all of which are free to install and use either from a laptop, home pc, mobile or tablet device.


Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp & Line


We recognise that the transition to new forms of technology may be either a new concept and possibly overwhelming for some people so to provide additional help and support we are offering FREE technical assistance to assist with initial set up of software for those who are interested.


For clients who do not have access to Smart phone, tablet, laptop or who are concerned around their anonymity and would prefer counselling by telephone we can also accommodate this.


If you or anyone you know would like more information regarding current availability for online sessions please contact us directly for FREE 15-minute telephone or online consultation.
