Many people today live very busy lives and find 'virtual' visits to the office preferable. This type of relationship and appointments allow for greater latitude in therapy. Many people mention that they enjoy the added benefit of Skypeing from home or the office citing that they save considerable travel time that would otherwise be spent comingand going to and from the office.
Some people prefer or need a telephone or ‘Skype’ counseling session especially when it would otherwise interrupt the quality or consistency of our work together. There are also those clients who are professionals and frequently on the road. Unable to keep consistent face-to-face appointments, the use the of telephone, Skype, or FaceTime allows the work to continue uninterrupted.
There may also be the odd occasion due to a baby sitter who has just canceled, severe weather or a partner or a family member who is home sick, there are others too who may be travelling. When unforeseen issues arise that make it too difficult to come into the office, it may be beneficial to conduct ‘virtual’ sessions.
