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 in its own right, too.

You can use your mobile or landline to call my mobile or we can use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) for a call. I currently use Zoom for VoIP calls (like a video call, but with our cameras switched off) – it’s like Skype, but deemed to be more secure. You don’t have to download the software beforehand but should you wish to do so in order to take a look at it, please visit:

You will need a private space your end, a good internet connection, and a speaker and microphone on your device.
