Voice Only Therapy Sessions

Using voice only for having therapy online

If I said that there is a way of experiencing therapy, that can increase the chances of dealing with a person’s challenging traumas, and painful emotions, and in turn promoting a positive outcome, what would you think? Maybe you’re thinking it’s just another therapist, making promises they can’t keep? I would not blame you for thinking that, in my opinion, many ideas in therapy sound like, and sometimes are, rehashed ideas, trying to stand out from the others, but still, they do generally add more choices for people to try, and that’s usually a good thing

Only using voice for therapy, no video

Just like everything else in the world of therapy, it’s not going to be suitable for everyone, but it is worth considering, especially when I can tell you that after almost ten years working as an online therapist, seeing hundreds of clients, I have noticed that some of the advantages with using only sound, can help many people overcome, high levels of anxiety in therapy. In my experience, has helped lots of people start therapy sooner, and often, helped them progress faster. It started to be noticed by myself, while providing online video sessions, I often detected that if using video became impractical, due to a bad connection, (not so common today) and we moved to only using sound by turning off video, the client usually became more relaxed, and expressive, as well as apparently being able to explore their emotional content, in a less inhibiting manner. I started to enquire after such sessions, about what the important difference was between the two methods for them, the feedback was usually comparable, in that they felt more able to talk freely, more relaxed before, and during the session, or less anxious when talking about themselves, this seemed more noticeable with clients in the early stages of therapy, and less so, with clients I had been seeing for more than 4 sessions. So, it appeared to me that my clients when starting therapy, especially for those who had never had therapy before, usually find it to be a more emotionally comfortable, and a less stressful experience, when not visible to the therapist. Obviously, the new clients who requested sound only therapy sessions, and who did not require video, also usually found that there was less anxiety felt, but the difference between the two methods, video and sound only, made stand out over and become more noticeable, not forgetting that some people will always prefer using video, when having therapy online.

Overcoming fear with voice only sessions

Starting therapy can be difficult, for some people it’s almost impossible, the anxiety involved can make sitting in front of someone, and talking about themselves, very difficult, quite often, its only when the emotional distress becomes unbearable, that they manage to overcome the anxiety and enter therapy, unfortunately by that time, the added damage to their lives can make recovery take longer, just like when someone keeps putting off seeing their dentist, due to fear, their teeth can become neglected, and the damage can go unnoticed, until they develop toothache, and only when the pain gets so intense, it overcomes their fear of going to the dentist for help, but that often means that there is a lot more treatment needed, and time required to fix the problems. So, I discovered that remaining hidden from view, can help people feel less exposed, but there is another side, maybe not so obvious, but just as important, everyone’s different, unique in so many ways, for example, some people love to watch movies, or TV, and others would prefer reading books to seeing films. When you read a book, you have to build the images and characters in your own mind, so you become the director, film crew, special affects artists and create everything yourself in your imagination, so maybe that’s why some people who like reading a lot, want to use sound only, and not engage with video.

Close your eyes and open your mind

If you close your eyes, most people can get a better sense of their inner world, their thoughts feelings and inner connection, it’s as if you close the windows looking out, and you can only see within, or have you noticed that when people think really hard, they often close their eyes, cutting out any distractions. When having therapy without video it can be a bit like closing your eyes, a bit like looking inward and engaging with your inner world, also essential when doing meditation or using hypnosis, you can even close your eyes having therapy with no one watching, who would know?

As always it depends

If your finding it hard to start therapy, or find the support you need, even if you would prefer to have therapy in the traditional face to face method, having online therapy, and only using sound, can be a stepping stone to getting what you want, many people have used my online service as a way of gaining confidence, before moving to in person sessions, with a therapist near them, unfortunately I can’t promise it will help, as always with any questions about therapy, those two little words are always relevant, it depends, as always with anything to do with therapy, the only way to find out if it works for you, is to try it for yourself to discover what possible for you.

What equipment do you need?

You need a microphone and headphones, but there are a number of options you can use, and you do not have to buy expensive equipment, in fact a combined mic and headphones called a headset can be very low cost, the price can be around £15.00 for a cheap but usable choice, I would recommend spending about £25.00 to £35.00 for a headset, or you can pay much more if you want very good quality sound. You can use a desk mic combined with a separate headphones or earbuds. But I would not recommend using the main speakers on your phone or computer, as that can lead to other people overhearing the conversation, especially if your hearing is not very good, and you need to turn up the sound so you can hear what’s being said.
