Online therapy is becoming increasingly popular, and with the spread of COVID-19, it is currently my primary means of delivering treatment to my clients. While the thought of communicating through video conference or phone might initially elicit some apprehension, it is essential to know that this form of therapy is just as effective as the sessions I hold in-person.
As with face-to-face appointments, I will meet by scheduling an initial consultation so you can get a feel for how we work. You can then decide if you would like to continue with more appointments. I have found that Skype works well for therapy, and I welcome phone consultations as well.
Security of Skype to Skype calls
According to Skype, “all Skype-to-Skype voice, video, file transfers and instant messages are encrypted. This protects you from potential eavesdropping by malicious users”. You can find out more about how Skype-to-Skype calls are encrypted here.
