Why Skype Counseling?
Skype counselling is a great alternative to face-to-face counselling:
Important: Telephone and Skype counselling is not appropriate for people who are suicidal, self-injuring, homicidal, or who have mental health issues that require more intense care than one session per week. If you feel severely depressed, suicidal, or you think you are about to hurt yourself or someone else, call 000, or go to the nearest hospital emergency room or clinic immediately and ask for help.
How Does Skype Work?
After you have decided to schedule a counselling session using Skype, we will arrange a time for the session to take place. Then I will contact your skype number and we will proceed exactly as an office counselling session would proceed. Skype is similar to face-to-face counselling because the use of the video conferencing allows visual and audio communication between us on our computer screens.
