This is from an article from Thriveworks on building rapport (connection with a client) in online counseling venues. On the whole I thought the article was so-so, but it did have some points like the above that made me think. This goes back to a post I wrote a while ago about using the phone vs. Skype, and how there are innumerable nonverbal messages that a client communicates that the therapist cannot afford to miss. I guess that’s true the other way around as well, as pointed out in this quote – in person, you would learn a lot more about me than you can via Skype (such as, for example, what shoes I’m wearing, or whether I’m even wearing shoes!).
To this end, I encourage you to read what I wrote in the About Me section, and feel free to ask if you have any further questions about who I am or what I do. That's not to say that I will start telling you the story of my life, but if you have a question, don’t hesitate to ask!
