Independent Counsellor and Psychotherapist / Life Coach. MSc (tbc), BSc (Hons), HND applied psy, Dip. psy, Dip. psyth, Dip. couns MOC, MSFTR.

FREE consultation and FREE first session, as standard.

I offer my services online, with video call proven to be most suitable for those who require face-to-face counselling/therapy. By phone is the next best after that. It can sometimes be daunting using this method for the first time, this is why I give a free 45 minutes consultation and then the first 75 minutes session free also as standard. This is so that any person can see if it is suitable for them, without the worry of paying for something which is not for them and with no obligation.

If you have never had counselling/therapy online before you have nothing to lose, especially with its convenience and flexibility...and with the added possibility of otherwise being left with only the limited available resources in your area.

Based Online in London, International coverage.

Review of Sean Kyle - Counselling and Therapy Service by Victoria
5 26/09/2017

Sean has been a great therapist. I honestly can't fault the experience of working with him. Sean has been flexible when i've had to swap days or had no internet and has made the process as easy as possible. He put a big emphasis on ensuring we were right to work with one another which put me at ease from the first meeting. Sean has been patient, insightful and kind when it comes to dealing with my issues. I've made real progress and I appreciate the space he gives me to work on my issues.

Sean Kyle - Counselling and Therapy Service Q&A

Company Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

Advocate for Mental Health Awareness, and working towards ending stigma. I believe in a Counsellor/Client relationship based on mutual respect. I will not promise to cure you, that is within your own power, but I will promise to listen, guide, and act....and you will change for the better. My training and qualifications are ongoing. Learning and meeting new people each day. Listening, and helping others to be themselves.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Well, I was born in 1971 so I am at this time of writing 45. When I left school in 1987, with reasonable O Level and CSE grades, I studied an OND in Construction Management at Cornwall College Camborne. My intention was to go further on to become an Architect, which I had an interest in at the time. However at that age I was still undecided and I felt that I was doing it more for others rather than myself, so I decided to take time out and went to work full time....a career in Retail began. Over the next twenty years I worked for various Companies, including Tesco and Boots the Chemist, living in different locations and holding different positions from Sales Assistant up to Manager. In each job the part I liked, and excelled at, the most was the people part with mentoring peers and helping customers. I still felt like my career was misplaced though, and I felt as though I needed a change. Then, like fate, I had an accident which resulted in a mild back injury. I was off work for some time, and whilst I was I decided to go back to full time higher education once I was better. So, my new path started and I first studied and completed a HND in Applied Psychology at Truro College, Cornwall....followed by Plymouth University, Cornwall College Camborne again, studying online with King's College London, and taking on a PhD towards the end of this year (2017) or next. My first Graduation was in 2011. I have also completed, along the way, other Diplomas and Certifications in Psychology, Counselling, Psychotherapy, and numerous Mental Health issues. The areas of Counselling and Therapy are where I believe I do the most good, and take pride in what I have achieved. I was a student rep at Plymouth University, and took part in two Research Apprenticeship Schemes working with Professors and enabling me to co-author in my first published article.

Why should our clients choose you?

In my spare time I have been a local Town Councillor for the St. Mary's Ward, Bodmin Town Council, Cornwall...where I was a member of committees such as Planning, Youth, and Chairman of Promotions, but also outside committees dealing with residential areas and Victim Support where I was a liaison. Public speaking comes naturally to me, and I have been called upon often to participate in presentations and talks. I have undertaken counselling sessions, under supervision, and volunteered. In the past I have also offered, with others, free counselling through two internet sites I founded....Free Counselling Services, and the Counselling and Psychology Community – Social Network (both no longer available)....dealing with numerous issues, and using appropriate therapy techniques in an online environment for nearly four years. My work with people, both professional and other, has spanned over nearly thirty years. Whilst being an Independent Counsellor, previously, I have helped many people to overcome their issues...even just to talk, and mentoring. Testimonials from previous clients have been positive.

Services provided by Sean Kyle - Counselling and Therapy Service

Services

Video call counselling.

Video call (webcam) counselling is just like face-to-face, instead you talk online over a video link. This means you do not have to visit an office, and if say you are engaged in couples counselling your partner can also be in another location at the same time. What is required is a computer, laptop or device with a webcam, download necessary software, and internet connection.

Email counselling.

Email counselling takes the form of a series of exchanges between Counsellor and Client. You can express your thoughts, feelings, problems and concerns, and then it will be read and responded to. Since you can not express body language and facial expressions, like with face-to-face or video call, email counselling is not really suitable for any complex mental health issues. However, many people feel more confident using this method, as a possible step up to face-to-face in the future. It can be a mixture of real-time, and fixed number of emails over a negotiated time frame. Requirements are a suitable device, appropriate email account, and connection to the internet.

Counselling by text.

Counselling by text (SMS) involves sending text messages concerning the problems and issues you are facing....both in real-time and over a set time period. This is a very easy and convenient method, however it is not one of the best...and if you do not have a network bundle like unlimited texts then it will cost more. Otherwise, all you need is a phone and number.

Instant message counselling.

Instant message counselling is similar to text counselling, but it is quicker in real-time and there are many options to choose from on computer or suitable device. It is also like email since you can compose more in depth messages, easily. Plus, of course, you need connection to the internet.

Telephone counselling.

Telephone counselling is like face-to-face, in real-time, only that you can not see each other. It is convenient, and the only cost is your normal phone and line (network) seeing as you will be called at the beginning of a session...so you do not pay for the call. Most certainly, it can be the step before face-to-face in the future. All you need is your phone, and connection.

Individual counselling.

Individual counselling is a one-to-one discussion between Counsellor and Client. The two form an alliance, relationship or bond that enables trust and personal growth.

Couples counselling.

Couples counselling is a form of therapy that looks to improve communication, and resolve issues within an intimate relationship.

Group therapy.

Group therapy provides treatment in a format where there is a therapist and between six and twelve participants. It is usually recommended if this format is better suited than individual, or that it is a particular element of another therapy being undertaken. People in the group not only improve by the interactions of the therapist, but also from observing the others and receiving their feedback.

Family counselling.

Family counselling helps people with relationship difficulties better manage the personal, or interpersonal, issues to do with children and family, and other problems....during marriage, separation, and divorce.
