Counselling Online, Online Therapy For variety of reasons (e.g. location, no travel time or costs, virus, implications) some people prefer online therapy to the orthodoxy of in-person therapy in the consulting room. Counselling online (ZOOM psychotherapy, Skype therapy) in the familiarity of our own home, the office, outdoors, if in a private space, can be more convenient to us. Alongside Skype counselling, ZOOM counselling, other online counselling services may be available.
