Distance Therapy: A new way to bring therapy to you!

Distance therapy is a new, innovative way for SOLAY to provide face-to-face therapy sessions to our clients. Through Skype & telephone counseling sessions, clients are able to engage in therapeutic relationships with SOLAY therapists wherever they are located.

What is Skype?

Skype is a free software that enables you to make calls for free as well as engage in chats and video conferences over the internet. To get started, all you need is high speed internet connection, a microphone and/or speakers and a Skype account. To learn amore about Skype and to download the program, visit

Benefits of Distance Therapy

Distance therapy can be beneficial to clients who:

  • Are not able or do not wish to travel to SOLAY
  • May have a schedule that prevents them from traveling to SOLAY
  • Prefer to work in an area that is already comforting to them
  • May have to travel and do not want to miss any therapy sessions

Distance therapy IS NOT for clients who:

  • Are self-injuring or suicidal
  • Require more intense mental health care
  • Are considering hurting others or homicidal
  • Who need reports or evaluations to be submitted to outside personnel

Is Skype Confidential?

Yes, all distant sessions are encrypted to ensure privacy and confidentiality. You can read more about it on Skype's website at:
