Video Call Consultation

Doing therapy on-line via video call, is just like coming in to have your therapy session in “real time”. This however comes without the hassle of leaving the comfort of your home or work place.

Besides the ease of use and the fact that it's free, one of the main appeals of video calling is that many of us are familiar with it; and, many people already use it and like it.

Using video calls in therapy has many positives including:

  • Familiarity
  • Positive experience
  • Easy and simple access
  • Free to use
  • It saves time; no travel to and from where your therapist is based
  • If you are away from home, your session can still take place if you have an internet connection.

How can I “do” a video call with Greenwich Time to Talk?

You will need a good connection, sound and picture for video calling to work at its best.

Most sessions last 50-60 minutes and follow the same format as a face-to-face session. Appointments are booked to fit in with your commitments.

In order for the appointment to take place via video call, the Clinician will send out an email invite containing a link for you to join the appointment.  Once you click the link it will temporarily install the software onto your machine and join you to the call.  Once the call is finished the software will remove itself.

If you are using a phone or a tablet you will be given instructions by the therapist on how to download the relevant  ‘app’ to enable you to join the call.
