Growth of Online Counselling Bucks Therapy Trend

Kiwis wanting expert relationship advice no longer have to brave the therapists chair or struggle with appointment times thanks to the launch of a convenient online therapy service.

Renowned therapist and relationship expert Leanne French says online counselling is a fast-growing business, as more and more Kiwis find there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get the help they want.

With more than 20 years experience in her industry, French has forged a successful career as a well-respected therapist and relationship expert, consistently called upon as a media commentator and columnist.

French says the immediacy of the new service allows people to conduct sessions in the comfort of their own home without the time pressures of everyday life and help is available outside normal work ours.

Online counselling is not like normal counselling because it attends to clients dilemmas instantaneously, which is such a help for busy people," says French. "I talk online to highly functioning people who need guidance, support and coaching so they can communicate in ways that enhance their business life and enrich their love and life decisions."

Leanne specialises in couples counselling, empowering individuals, stress management, grief, transforming addiction and enhancing creativity. She attributes the continuing success of her online counselling service to the fact that it allows people to get what they need, without having to leave their home, office, or children.

According to Leanne, when people are more aware of what they say, what they do and how they behave, they become more attentive to their own needs and the needs of others.

French’s online counselling is available at a rate of $90 per hour. An introductory email and Leanne’s first response is free of charge. Leanne also offers therapy sessions from her boutique retreat in Martinborough in the Wairarapa, as well as over the phone.

Something for the blokes - or Dad!

Spice system

Add a little spice to your life with a two-in-one regime to revitalise the scalp with a warming sensation.

Saving time without compromising condition, the new Redken for Men Clean Spice 2-in-1 conditioning shampoo is highly convenient for sophisticated men with a fast-paced lifestyle. The fast acting, multi-sensorial formula enriched with fortifying protein and essential wood oils moisturises and disciplines all hair types – even the hardest to manage – and leaves hair clean, soft, with frizz under control.

“Ease and no fuss formulas are the ticket with men and this two-in-one formula ticks all the boxes,” says Redken’s national education manager Katrina Foster. “The difference between this offering and standard two-in-ones is that this is a shampoo that has integrated conditioning components within, rather than trying to amalgamate a shampoo and conditioner into one product which is not technically viable. The formula is perfect for all hair types, including coarse and medium as well as sensitive scalps, containing an optimal concentration of invigorating and soothing ingredients to help maintain the scalps natural balance.”

The first creamy conditioning shampoo from Redken for Men instantly bursts into a warm, rich, foam that releases an aromatic blend of cedar wood, warm spice and sparkling ginger for a resolutely masculine style. Apply to wet hair, massage into lather in a circular motion for one minute, then rinse.

Redken for Men Clean Spice 2-in-1 conditioning shampoo (300ml) has an RRP of $31.00 and is available from August 1.
