People come and ‘see’ me from all over the world, so distance is no obstacle to having a helpful conversation. Many of us are already familiar Skype or similar services for talking to friends, family or colleagues, wherever they might be, so it is a natural step to hold therapy or coaching sessions in a virtual space in the same way.

Rather than being seen as ‘second best’ to the traditional consulting room, surveys with clients show that some people are actually more comfortable using Skype.  It can engage people who would never actually take steps to locate or visit a therapist. Convenience is important for busy people, and since we can buy just about anything on-line, why not therapy and coaching too?

Skype therapy doesn’t just appeal to internet-savvy youngsters or busy working people. Doctors are offering Skype counselling services to their patients, universities are doing the same for staff and students. And housebound parents and carers can get help and support without leaving those they care for.

Coaching or Therapy via Skype is growing because it is easy to access, simple to schedule and it means you can ’try before you buy’ with a free session to assess the therapist or coach you’d be working with. See my Session Terms to find out more about how it works.

Why choose to meet via Skype?

  • It is often more convenient to ‘meet’ your therapist in the comfort of your home or office
  • It saves time and money because there is no travel with associated costs
  • You can choose you therapist, rather than being limited to one that practices near where you live
  • Easier access to the coach or therapist with shorter waiting times
  • Email backup between sessions should you feel the need
  • A free initial consultation to assess the therapist  or coach before committing
  • Greater choice; when you remove the limitation of travel many more possibilities become available.

There are many advantages to consulting a coach or therapist via Skype, and for some people it is actually their preferred route to getting guidance and support. What’s more, with online booking, making an appointment takes just a few clicks.

Metaphorically, you might say, some people will stop to look in a mirror to see what they could learn, while others will hurry past it, in case they learn something.

Which Community Do You Belong To?

A community is held together by shared interest and respect for other members. In this sense of community, people rally round ideas and aspirations in the hope of carrying both forward. Yet most of us pay only lip-service to the values of the communities we belong to, doing little or nothing to help them flourish.

On the other hand, there are those who are able to bring some passion to the game. They explore what they think and feel about who they are, where they fit in the grand scheme of things, their purpose, and what it all means to them.

Thermometers and Thermostats

Which one are you? A thermometer measures the ambient temperature of its milieu. It checks and reports. A thermostat on the other hand responds to its environment. It also checks, but then it makes little adjustments… it actually influences the environment. You might say that a thermometer is a rather passive receptor, and a thermostat […]
