Yes. I would always have a slight preference for us to meet in person in my dedicated therapy room in S80, North Nottinghamshire.

In reality, I work with as many, if not more, people remotely as I do in person. My preferred video platform is Zoom, but am happy to use Teams as an alternative.

I haven’t found that Facetime, WhatsApp, or Messenger to be as useful for our purposes.

Requirement for working on-line

  1. There are a couple of things that we need to think of if we are working on-line.
  2. You need to have a fast and reliable internet connection
  3. You need to be able to create an environment that meets the following criteria:
    * You must be physically comfortable in a chair that supports your back and preferably your neck as well.
    * It must be a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed
    * I need to be able to see your face at all times and the device should be on a fixed surface and not hand-held
  4. In the very unlikely event that we lose the internet connection at a critical time you must provide me with a phone number where I can contact you. My professional body and insurance also insist that you provide an emergency contact number of someone of somebody who I could ask to check on you if necessary
