How online counselling works

Sessions may be scheduled via video, audio or chat using Vsee (like Skype but more secure). For most people it works as well as in the office for individual sessions. It is easier to do couple sessions in an office if a suitable service is available and convenient, but in the smaller centres the choice is limited and online counselling with a suitable therapist is sometimes better.
