How others are using video sessions

A lot of healthcare services and private practices are already treating people with the help of video sessions. So, you're not alone, and can learn from the experiences of others. Here, we share some of their stories:

Treating expats all around the world

Clinical psychologist Bart Vemer has his own private psychology practice, Aeffectivity. He treats people from all over the world, mostly expats. In this short blog, he explains what he does and gives a few tips for online sessions. Read the article.

"I don't think online is less personal"

Video sessions can also be beneficial to those receiving therapy who are living with a long-term condition, or who find it difficult to leave the house. One patient shares her experience of how she went from being skeptical to preferring video sessions. Read the article.

"In the end, it’s all about the therapeutic relationship"

Marley Heilbron is a clinical psychologist who works 100% digitally, meaning that for her and her clients, video sessions are the norm. She shares her tips and why she thinks video calling can be more beneficial than physical face-to-face treatment sessions. Read the article.

Quick start for therapists

We've created this short video to help therapists to start using video sessions, so that you can see what to expect.

Would you rather read through the steps? The following link includes a written version of the quick start for therapists.

Explanation for patients

We've also created a video for your patients to watch before their first video session with their therapist, allowing them to see all of the steps in advance, before giving it a go. This may be especially useful to those who feel that they aren't particularly ‘tech-savvy’.

Do you work in a practice or organisation and want to use this video to inform your patients? Please feel free to use it - you can share it either by using the YouTube link, downloading the video, or you can ask us for the file. There is also a written version of this manual on the patient support site.
