Now accepting UK Clients Online

Following the launch of his book ‘Life After a Partner’s Suicide Attempt’ (2021), Dr. Francis McGivern received many queries from around Europe and further afield about providing psychotherapy to individuals in the aftermath of a partner’s suicide attempt.

Dr. McGivern is delighted to announce that he is now in a position to accept online clients from the UK covering many of the typical issues that bring people to psychotherapy, and including the personal impact on partners following an attempted suicide.

Dealing with the aftermath of a partner or significant other’s suicide attempt can be incredibly challenging, indeed, traumatic. During such a difficult time, online therapy can provide essential support and numerous benefits:

1. **Accessibility and Convenience**
Online therapy allows you to receive professional support from the comfort of your own home, eliminating the need to travel or arrange transportation. This is particularly valuable when you’re dealing with emotional distress and the practical challenges that often follow a crisis.

2. **Flexibility in Scheduling**
Online therapy offers flexible scheduling options, making it easier to fit sessions into your life. Dr. Francis will endeavour to accommodate your availability.

3. **Comfort and Privacy**
Participating in therapy sessions from a familiar and private setting can help you feel more at ease. This comfort can encourage openness and honesty, which are crucial for effective therapy.

4. **Access to Specialist Support**
Dr. Francis was one of the first therapists globally to research the personal impact of a suicide attempt specifically on partners, through his Doctorate in Psychotherapy (2014) and subsequently published his book ‘Life After a Partner’s Suicide Attempt’ (2021).

5. **Consistency and Continuity**
Maintaining regular therapy sessions is vital for recovery. Online therapy ensures that you can continue your sessions even if you move, travel, or face other disruptions, providing consistent support during a critical period.

6. **Cost-Effectiveness**
Online therapy can often be more affordable than traditional in-person sessions. It saves costs related to travel and time off work, making it a financially viable option.

7. **Confidentiality and Security**
Online therapy platforms are designed to ensure your privacy and confidentiality. Secure, encrypted communication channels protect your personal information and the details of your sessions.

Take the First Step Towards Healing
