Zoom

Zoom

As the world is adapting to the virus more and more people are using Zoom. Zoom
is an industry standard platform which is completely secure. Most agencies, Councils and therapists choose zoom for this reason. The important thing is that it’s
easy to use and won’t cost you anything to use it.

If you have not used Zoom before I’m happy to talk you through it and can send you
a document on how it all works and how to use it. It’s easy once you get the hang of
it and you can choose several options to suit your needs. I appreciate it can be a bit
scary using new technology and if after trying it you find it’s not for you, then that’s
fine, we can do something else.
