Skype, Facetime & VSee

Skype, Facetime and VSee can be helpful when travelling on business or holiday. Or, you might not be able to access a suitable local therapist. A screen and a good internet connection can be a lifeline.

Although I do occasionally use Skype and Facetime, I do most of my online work through VSee. Skype’s user policy means that they reserve the right to record any conversations that occur using their medium. Whilst this is unlikely, I prefer to use a secure medium. VSee is not only secure, but also uses much less bandwidth than Skype. VSee also adapts to network conditions. This makes it ideal for use in countries where low-bandwith is an issue.

Making Skype, Facetime or VSee a success

In order that we have the best chance of success, please set up either Skype, Facetime or VSee and do a test call (to the software) in advance of our session. At the time of our session please ensure you are in a private place where you can’t be overheard, and won’t be disturbed. I would strongly suggest you also use headphones or a headset.

Please place your ipad, tablet, phone or webcam in a place where I can see your head and shoulders at minimum. This helps me get a sense of body language/how you’re feeling.

Sometimes technology, fantastic as it is, fails! We might lose a connection. On those occasions we’ll aim to have a back up plan such as a mobile or landline that you feel comfortable using.

If you would like to discuss the possibilities of Skype, Facetime or VSee sessions please get in touch.
