How Do Online Virtual Sessions Work?

Online Virtual Sessions work in a couple of ways. The most popular approach is using a computer, ipad or tablet device with a web camera and strong internet connection. If you do not have access to a web camera, phone calls can be arranged.

We use Zoom, which is a FREE online video chat program to our clients; not to mention it is easy to access. This makes online sessions stress-free and enjoyable for all!

Online Virtual Sessions can be done from anywhere in the world! This means you do not need to live near us to schedule a session.
