Hot Tips for Videoconferencing
Ensure your Internet connection is reliable where you are intending to have your session.
Make arrangements so incoming calls; pets or housemates will not distract you during your session and your privacy is assured.
Your Recovery Coach will likely be using earphones or headphones to ensure your words will not be heard by anyone else. You are welcome to do the same or can use your laptop/cell phone speaker as you choose.
Seeing yourself onscreen as you talk can be distracting! If you find it to be the case, ask us how to minimise yourself on screen and we will talk you through it.
Ensure you are not streaming or downloading any large files before you begin your session, as this can affect the videoconferencing quality.
If your connection fails or is patchy for some reason, it is also possible to voice call into Zoom. If this is necessary, your Coach will send you a call-in number via email or text. We ask however that you use voice calling as a last resort.
