Thomas Geffen


I am a registered Counselling Psychologist with a special interest in online therapy. I have a Master's of Arts degree (cum laude) in Counselling Psychology from Wits University and have experience providing online therapy across platforms like Zoom. During the current lockdown, and with concerns around the coronavirus and COVID-19, talking to a psychologist online can provide a safe, effective way to connect. In general, online psychotherapy is useful if a person is unable to travel, stays far away, is home-bound or travels for business. It can be used in conjunction with face-to-face therapy, or as an exclusive alternative. Online counselling is easily conducted after hours or on weekends.

Online Therapy 

Online therapy is a flexible, convenient and safe method of connecting across distance. It functions similarly to face-to-face therapy, but from the comfort of your home - or wherever the wifi is best. Security is key, so I use ensure using platform where there is a high level of privacy (e.g. encryption and passwords). However, online counselling comes with its own concerns, so I have created a list of frequently asked questions to guide your decision or read my blog  post - Online Therapy 101.
