What does a Skype session look like?
First session includes medical and psychological intake, and a definition of some short term objectives.
Like any other therapy session, the difference with Skype is that we are not in the same room together, while a very similar feeling occurs.
I personally work with Skype for many years now and find no difference between efficiency in office and on line.
I encourage every client to write a follow up after each session–and send it to me.
This way we can keep track and make progress tangible.
– please check that the microphone for Skype is working fine (smart phone or PC)
– the area where you will be taking your call should have a good internet connection (in many households the connection sometimes varies from room to room)
– please do not drink any alcohol minimum 48h before session
– get enough sleep before the session if possible
– if possible check that you don’t get phone calls or house-visits during the session time
– before the session you may wanna write down some notes which you will address (feel free to send them to me as well)
– you may also want to leave 10-15min time to think and rest after the session, this way you can digest what we worked on.
– sometimes the Skype connection is not fast enough for a proper video. If that happens we shall simply turn the video off and continue with the session.
I hope you will find this initial information valuable.
