Online therapy or Skype is a new convenient alternative to face to face therapy. Skype can be accessed via the computer from home, work or even on holiday anywhere in the world. For some clients it has proven to be a better way of finding the help and support they need when they need it. Some clients are more comfortable and find it easier to talk openly about issues that they might otherwise find difficult in direct face to face contact.
Skype is free software that enables millions of people around the world to make free phone and video calls to each other using their computers, a web camera and an internet connection. If you haven’t already got Skype installed, it’s very easy. Just go to www.Skype.com and download and install the appropriate version for your computer (e.g. PC or Mac), and follow their simple instructions. The Skype website and the Skype software will between them give you all the information you need to know about setting up and using Skype.
