How does e Therapy work?
With e Therapy, you can access a qualified and experienced clinical psychologist using phone or Skype technology. You simply indicate which form of contact you feel most comfortable with and we can go from there.
If you choose Skype, your appointment will be conducted just like a face-to-face session – you will be able to see, hear and interact with your psychologist ‘virtually’ for the length of the session. You will be able to interact with your psychologist much the same as you would in a consulting room, except you are in the comfort of your own space.
All you need is a computer with a camera and audio capacity, a reliable internet service, a Skype account and a private uninterrupted space in which to have your therapy session. Click here for more information on how to use Skype and to download Skype for free .
