Video calling and web therapy have been around for almost as long as video cameras have been available for computers. Many studies have illustrated the effectiveness of therapy delivered through this medium. So, who would benefit from this type of therapy and why would you choose it?
This is especially helpful for those people:
* with hectic schedules
* busy professionals
* working mums
* who work away or abroad much of the time
* with disabilities that may find it difficult to travel
* that simply prefer the comfort of their own homes
* who live too far away
* who have agoraphobia
Telephone therapy is also an option for those people who do not have access to technology or may find it inconvenient to video at times but are still able to fully engage with a telephone conversation. Although this type of therapy is not always preferred as its much nicer to be able to interact with the view of a person’s face it is still an effective form of treatment. There are after all many support lines, advice and counselling services available over the phone.
I have already helped people in Europe across Skype, sometimes there are little blips in the signal strength, but this will never be taken off your time and you will receive the full service that comes for each treatment just the same as somebody face-to-face.
