For some, Skype video counselling may be a convenient alternative to traditional face to face counselling. Using Skype, the counsellor is usually able to build rapport as easily as in face to face counselling. They can listen to your thoughts and feelings, and see your body language. This will help them gain an overall picture very quickly.
Some people prefer therapy sessions in the comfort of their own homes, rather than driving to a therapist. Live video counselling is one way of bringing counselling to people who live far away. Or for those who cannot easily leave home to attend counselling.
