This is likely to feel fairly natural to you if you’re used to talking to people on the phone. You may prefer that I don’t see you – for now, or at all. It also means you won’t see me.

You may already use other software or apps to have voice-only conversations – such as Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp or Google Hangouts.

I sometimes use voice-only calls to conduct sessions in between face-to-face sessions or video sessions when there is a reason that we can’t meet in the usual way. Phone calls are also my back-up for when video connections are lost. But it’s a way of working together in its own right, too.

If we use VoIP you might use a desktop, laptop, notebook, tablet or phone. Whichever device you do use, it will need to have a speaker and microphone..
