This is why creating your counselling niche is so important in online therapy. But there's another reason that late evening or early morning appointments work well: people these days are time poor and want convenience. Webcam therapy other forms of Internet based psychology provide scheduling benefits that our clients are seeking.
For many time poor clients, particularly those who work in London or start they jobs early, online counselling and coaching lets them see their therapist or coach from their office or home at a time that suits them. Similarly, those who work late may not have the time during the day to travel to a counselling practice. When we are working with issues like motivation or goal setting, often we are working with busy clients. Stop wasting your time with marketing to the 'average' client. Advertise your services in a way that takes into account your specific client needs and you will reach more clients.
If you are also the kind of practitioner who likes to start early or work late into the evening, meeting your clients over webcam offers you safety and comfort as well. You can easily work from a home office as an online counsellor and not have to travel home at night. Working online as a therapist or coach has many advantages both for you and your clients.
