Skype counselling is the most similar to traditional in person counselling. It allows for a wide range of audio and visual communication without the hassle of having to travel to Loughborough. Advances in technology which allow counselling to be undertaken as though in the same room even when half way across the world, are remarkable. There are still some issues that are better and safer to be discussed in person but the majority of issues can be dealt with over Skype Counselling. The fee for one 50 minute session is 30.00.
It is important that a good and reliable connection is established so that it does not affect the session. Also, if possible, users of Skype Counselling should use a hands free set and consider a secondary skype camera so that audio and visual quality are improved. Again, like the other forms of virtual therapy, it is essential that specific time is set aside for the session where there will be no distractions.
