Online Skype Counseling

If for any reason, you are unable to attend counseling sessions in person or prefer to have counseling via the internet, I offer online counseling via Skype.

What is Skype Counseling?

While using the internet as a mode of communication for therapy may seem somewhat unconventional, online video conferencing is an effective, confidential and convenient alternative to face-to-face sessions. I have successfully used this method especially with clients that may be far away, travelling, prefer the 'no commute' element , or are working and can make time only later in the evening or early mornings. I however would not use this for personality disorders, moderate to severe clinical depression and other serious disorders as in my professional opinion they require face-to-face sessions.

How does Skype Counseling Work?

Skype is a computer program which allows video calls over the internet. It is free to download and easy to set up. It allows real-time conversations and allows us to see each other. This enables a deeper level of connection and communication. To get started:

  1. Download the program and install it onto your computer. You can click the following link: Download Skype.
  2. Follow the instructions to install.
  3. Create an account and add me to your contact list. My skype id is - LifeSkillsExperts
  4. You will need a webcam if your computer doesn't have one built in, and possibly a headset [for better voice clarity].
