SKYPE™ THERAPY – WHO IS IT FOR?
Skype Therapy is a valid alternative to face-to-face therapy for most individuals, couples and families. People of all ages can get to grips with the simple Skype interface and my oldest patient is in her 80s! Skype therapy has been particularly beneficial for the following groups of people:
- Those who are busy and often pushed for time.
- Regular travellers.
- Those with concerns about bumping into their therapist socially.
- Shift workers.
- People with physical disabilities.
- People with certain psychological conditions (e.g. agoraphobia, social anxiety, etc.)
- People in the public eye (celebrities, politicians, etc.)
- People on tour (actors, singers, comedians, etc.)
- Pilots, airline/cruise staff, MDs or anyone in a profession that involves regular travel.
- People who find themselves ‘making excuses’ to avoid face-to-face sessions.
- People with chaotic and disorganised lifestyles.
- Those who find using a computer more natural and/or comfortable than talking face-to-face (although Skype is simple for even basic computer users to work with).
Skype Therapy can also help overcome barriers to therapy in the following situations:
- Domestic abuse (where the victim is unable or unwilling to leave their home).
- Where a client wants or needs to take a holiday but doesn’t want to disrupt their therapy work.
- Where clients are living in remote rural locations.
- Where a therapist or client relocates making face-to-face therapy impossible.
- Where the type of therapy desired/needed is not available locally.
INTENSIVE THERAPY & SKYPE COUNSELLING: FULHAM, LONDON; MIAMI, USA; TORBAY & EXETER
Some of my UK patients use Skype therapy but see me face-to-face when convenient. Others prefer to use Skype only. Some prefer the powerful work that happens during intensive therapy.
