Many clients of mine live interstate or in areas where they cannot physically reach the clinic, but this does not mean they cannot ‘Reach for the Sky’!
This week I’ve had the pleasure to engage in daily Skype sessions with clients from Melbourne, Byron Bay, Wollongong, just to name a few. So how does this work?
Skype offers free voice and video calls to anyone else on Skype, conference calls with three or more people and some other features. In addition they offer very affordable rates to call landlines and mobiles from your computer. As an effect, personally I practically no longer use my home phone.
This is what it will look like , when I talk to some of my clients:
On this picture you can see that Barbara is talking to her husband Martin. He can see her picture in large and his picture in the corner on the left.
Depending on your computer you can use your internal microphone and speakers or you might needs to purchase a headset (like in the example shown). Most new computers already have an built-in camera, if not, they are also available to buy at most office supply shops.
Here’s what you need to do to try it out:
1. Go to www.skype.com and download the program onto your computer.
2. Start adding contacts by clicking on ‘Add Contact’ – on the PC version you can see the button (in the picture just above Martin Anderson’s name), on the Mac version you’ll find it when going to ‘Contacts’ in the navigation menu. You can find contacts either by adding their first and last name and click on ‘search’ or if you know it, add their skype user name.
3. Make a test call with someone you know.
How about a Skype Counselling or Coaching session?
My clients receive great benefit from these sessions, similar to a session in person here at the clinic.
Here is what Karen said after her session this week, where I coached her on releasing her fear of public speaking:
By the end of the session I feel completely confident with the idea of speaking in front of a large group of people.
I made friend with what will naturally occur in the body in that situation.
I now have strategies in place to help me find my power source.
It was a strong visual and sensory experience that will enable me to remember – the breath activates the visual.
Let’s give it a go – if you’re interested to do a Skype session, send me an email or give me a call; 0405 701 707.
