Instead of automatically joining in with someone else’s bad online etiquette (Netiquette) I’m suggesting an alternative. You could do something positive to challenge the behaviour. Press the Pause button to view a set of guidelines, compassionately written and offered as a way of helping us live together respectfully and as decent human beings – feel free to share the link.Read More

post

Many people choose online therapy as it fits into their lifestyle - and their way of being in the world. And, in contrast to traditional therapy, it puts the client much more at the centre of things. Speaking from their world, their space, in ways which they choose.

post

Do you have enough clients for your online therapy practice? It’s no secret that some people are still sceptical about online therapy.

Facetime is a free Internet application that allows webcam type communications via Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, MacBook and Mac PCs) using an Internet/WiFi connection or mobile data. iMessage is the equivalent, but as an instant messaging app. Both applications come pre-loaded on the devices and only require setting up via an Apple ID (which will be familiar to Apple users).
