Online Sessions

A Quick Guide to Online Sessions

A Quick Guide to Online Sessions

I use Zoom for online sessions as this has proven to be the most reliable and is also GDPR compliant.

When we book in a zoom session you’ll receive an email or text with the scheduled meeting time, date and a link to join the meeting. If you don’t receive this ahead of our session please check your spam folder or let me know. You’ll also receive (separately) a password that Zoom will ask for when you join our session or meeting.

Please make sure you make payment before session. These details will be contained in the email I’ve sent through to you.

There is also a ‘Getting Started’ link below.

Please Make Sure You Are Able To:

  • Find a safe, private (so you can maintain your confidentiality) and comfortable space – A relaxing chair is great but please make sure I can see your face.
  • Headphones – These aren’t essential but if you can I would have some close by.
  • If I don’t already have it let me know your telephone number or you call me on 07756 932 702 if there are any connection difficulties. It can also be useful to set your phone to ‘do not disturb-except for my number ‘ if your phone has that feature.
  • Have my audio close by in case this part of the session runs into difficulty.

Online sessions differ in that I cant see what’s going on around you or help control your environment. It also means that I cant be there in person to sit with you if you become upset. Our sessions are generally future focused but if you worry that you might become upset please insure you have tissues or someone close by for support after our session. Please also ensure that you feel wide awake and ready for the day ahead before driving or operating machinery.
