Support by Email – One Off or Regular

One off support or regular e-counselling

Support by Email (c) KarinSieger.com

I offer email support or e-counselling on a one off or more frequent basis as agreed with you. Please see below for a detailed description of each service.

What topics do you offer support for?

Both services are offered in English, and only for certain topics (including grief, life-changing and chronic illnesses, personal transitions). It excludes addiction, self harm, suicidal thoughts, severe mental health difficulties or mental health diagnosis. This is because in those cases specialist crisis or face to face support will be of greater benefit.

What else do I need to know?

Based on my training I only work with adults. Therefore, you must be aged 18+ to use this service. Please read the submission guidelines below for other important information.

1. One off support by email

There are times when something bothers us and all we want is another opinion, a supportive word, extra motivation from someone to set us on our way.

We cannot always get that from relatives, friends or colleagues. Sometimes we are alone, or don’t want to bother others, make a fuss. That is why I offer one off support by email.

How does it work?

This is a confidential service, with you emailing me a brief description of what is happening and what you need. I will then let you know whether I feel I can help and the timeline for my response.

How much does it cost?

This one off support by email costs £90 payable via secure PayPal link.

What will I get?

You will receive a personal and bespoke response of 1,000 – 2,000 words via a secure encrypted services. The style of my reply will be in line with writing on KarinSieger.com, esp the #DearKarin advice column. In particular, I will provide you with

  • a reflection on the issue you are facing,
  • a second opinion (where appropriate),
  • self help suggestions,
  • coping strategies
  • and motivation for you.

2. E-Counselling by Email

This support is suitable if you cannot make it to counselling sessions in person, or prefer contact by email. Please be aware that I only support certain topics (see submission guidelines below).

How does it work?

We would have an initial meeting online via Zoom for which I would send you a secure link. All you would need to do is download the App. More details here. During this 1 hour meeting you can tell me what support you need, I can ask you some question and we can agree if and how to work together.

This confidential service would be weekly, whereby you send me a weekly email to which I respond within 48 hours. I use a secure encryption service for my replies.

How much does it cost?

The initial 1 hour online meeting costs £90. Reading and replying to your weekly email costs £80. Both would be payable via a secure PayPal link.

What will I get?

You will receive a personal and bespoke response of up to 1,000 words. In particular, I will provide you with

  • a reflection on the issue you are facing,
  • a second opinion (where appropriate),
  • self help suggestions,
  • coping strategies
  • and motivation for you.

Submission Guidelines for Email Support

This service is only available to readers aged 18+.

Not every topic is suitable for support by email. If your own or the life of another is at risk, if you feel suicidal, self-harm or have severe mental health difficulties, then please seek medical or crisis support via your medical practitioner, the Samaritans (in the UK and ROI) or any other relevant authority or agency. In such circumstances I cannot provide advice via email.

I only select topics for which I feel suitably qualified, which include bereavement, grief, loss, personal transitions, creative blocks, the emotional impact of life changing and chronic illnesses (esp cancer) on those with the diagnosis, family and friends.

This service excludes relationship or family advice or mental health diagnosis

Submit any relevant information using no more than 1,000 words.

Do not submit any sensitive information like medical, financial, or other private records relating to your or any other person.

My responses are not a substitute for medical advice, counselling or therapy.
