We can talk

Skype coaching and therapy means you can talk to me wherever you are. I offer a free, no-strings discussion so that you can find out more about me and I can understand what it is you’d like help with.

We can talk over ideas and I can answer any questions you have. After that, you decide. Book a session, go away and think about it, or simply use whatever comes out of the conversation (some people find that a single conversation like this is often all that’s needed).

Distance is no obstacle to having a helpful conversation

Skype therapy and coaching makes it possible for conversations with clients from all over the world. 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 coaching sessions in a virtual space in the same way.

Rather than being seen as ‘second-best’, surveys with clients show that some people are actually more comfortable using Skype.  It can engage those who would never actually take steps to locate a therapist nor visit a consulting room. Convenience is important for busy people, and since we can buy just about anything online, why not coaching and therapy too?

Skype coaching and therapy doesn’t just appeal to internet-savvy youngsters or busy working people. Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) have been using it for several years. GPs 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.

What was once an option suddenly became a necessity when the pandemic ruled out personal contact. Within days, online discussions via apps like Zoom and Skype were the only way we could ‘meet’. This brought with it a rise in both awareness and use of online services for therapy and coaching.

Coaching, therapy or training via Skype may be ideal for you 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 person you’d be working with.

Why choose Skype coaching and therapy?

  • It is often more convenient to ‘meet’ your coach or therapist in the comfort of your home or office
  • It saves time and money because there is no travel or associated costs
  • You can choose your coach, 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
  • An initial consultation, free, to assess the coach before committing
  • Greater choice; when you remove the limitation of travel many more possibilities become available.

Thinking of speaking to me?

The way to et up a conversation is to send me an initial contact via the form below, so that we can agree a mutually convenient time. Let me know your country of residence and the best time for you, so that I can factor in the time difference (I’m in the UK). 

I’ll also need to know your Skype name, or if that’s not practical for you, some other contact details so we can connect (Zoom, WhatsApp or Facetime, for example).

An initial free call lasts 20-30 minutes. If you decide you’d like to work with me we can continue with a full, paid session right away. Or, if you’d like take time to think about it, that’s OK too. We can schedule another conversation.

Sessions last 60-90 minutes, I invoice via Paypal after each session. I charge £65.00 ($100 US) per session. 

When you contact me feel free to ask any questions, and remember, the important this is to start speaking. You can use the initil free session to judge whether you want to take the conversations further. If you decide that I’m not for you, then you are free to choose.

I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
