Tips on how to get the most from Online Couple Therapy from home


Couple Therapy in the privacy of your home is most effective with the following considerations:

  • That you are both in the same location on the same Computer Screen/Laptop, this is most important for an effective Couples Session. Unfortunately sessions cannot proceed if Couple's are in different locations/rooms.

  • It is strongly recommended to get the most out of your session that we see each other on a computer screen/laptop and not a mobile device.

  • Please turn off all virtual backgrounds.

  • The room you are in is very well lit.

  • That you have a good internet connection.

  • That the sound on your device is clear and audible.

  • You are both sitting on separate chairs that are equal in height, preferably swivel chairs.

  • That there are no interruptions or distractions.

  • That we limit sessions to two hours as online can cause some fatigue for you rather than being live in the room with me.  

  • That you agree to respond to my directives particularly when emotions are high. This is very important for the online therapy to be effective and we can discuss this before we commence.

  • That no one is recording the sessions under any circumstances.

  • I can see you both from your waist up in the camera.

  • That you have both allowed some time before hand to centre yourself for the session.  


See you in the virtual world and I look forward to my session with you.
