Using Skype.

Most couples prefer to use two devices (eg 2 x computers, a computer and a Skype-enabled Smart Phone etc…) but if the couple can tolorate to sit very close to each other then a single Skype camera will suffice;  the couple need to be able to look at each other from time to time The choice to use one or two Skype devices is yours, though.

Time Differences.

Skype couple counselling can be ideal for remote/Long-distant relationships – but we will have to manage any time-differences.

Outside-of-session Contact.

It is sometimes necessary to make contact with the counsellor outside of the sessions (e.g. to cancel or rearrange an appointment). When emailing Dean, best practice is to CC your partner in the email.  Unless it has been agreed otherwise by everyone, individual contact with Dean without the knowledge of the partner is not advisable, but we will manage this as far as possible should it become necessary.

Whilst attempting to engage in contact beyond the time-boundaries and therapy-boundaries is discouraged, we will manage situations as they arise.
