Are Video Calls and Phone Calls As Effective?

The short answer – yes, very much so.

I work with many clients this way already and they love it. It is just as effective and connecting as in person.

Research backs this up. For instance, a 2014 study in the Journal of Affective Disorders found that online treatment is just as effective. An earlier study by Germaine et al in 2010 reached the same conclusion.

So you get the same outcome, yet with many benefits too.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Saves Time
  • Saves Money
  • Less Hassle

There is no travel to and from sessions.

That means less time taken out of your day, no traffic hassles, no parking fees, and no public transport costs.

So it’s so much easier to fit your sessions into a busy day, and saves money too.

More Flexible Appointment Times

During the coronavirus outbreak I will be offering more flexible appointment times for video call clients. This includes evening appointments where needed.

Is it hard for you to find privacy in the daytime? Just let me know and I can fit around when is best for you.

Liverpool Psychotherapist and Counsellor Alun Parry

I’ve been working this way with many clients for some time.

When I first started doing phone call and video sessions, I was doubtful if it would offer the same level of connection as in person.

Happily, I found that it absolutely does. It’s a really enjoyable way to work together.

Until things are back to normal, I’d encourage you to give it a go.
