How I became an Online convert...
When I started out as a therapist clients paid by cash or cheque and my appointments (and accounts) were recorded in large ledgers. Therapy (of all types) was conducted face-to-face and the idea of working online was inconceivable.
Fast forward a few years and newer hypnotherapists began to work online, but it wasn’t for me. I was old-school and continued to see all my clients at my hypnotherapy clinic in Wimbledon assuming it offered clients a better experience.
Then Covid happened and I had to review my earlier resistance to practising online. I learnt how Zoom worked and despite being a tech dinosaur, I found it remarkably easy to use. Having previously believed that I needed to have clients in the room with me to notice changes in their expression, body language etc, I realised that I could distinguish subtle changes in a client’s mood or level of relaxation equally well via their laptop or tablet. I love the convenience and versatility of online therapy, and my clients do too. Those who’d been hesitant became converts, just as I had. And best of all clients who couldn’t access therapy with me before, now could. Woo-hoo!
