In 2008 Peter Zapfella was one of the first therapists to adopt Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) (also known Skype Therapy) to conduct live one-on-one therapies around the world using Internet technology (IT). These technologies allow for the reception and transmission of audio–video by users around the world using any Internet access device, including desktops, laptops tablets, and mobile/cell phones.
Peter has witnessed an enormous improvement in the overall reliability of VoIP services over the past decade, with a vast improvement in quality and reliability. Software is constantly improving while Internet speeds increase at the same time.
“…randomized controlled studies that have been conducted to date, (show that Skype Therapy) tele-mental health has demonstrated equivalent efficacy compared to face-to-face care in a variety of clinical settings…”Richardson LK, Frueh BC, Grubaugh AL, Egede L, Elhai JD. Current Directions in Videoconferencing Tele-Mental Health Research.
Who benefits from Skype Therapy?
- Those people who want to avoid close contact with others due to Covid-19 (Corona) and other communicable diseases, including influenza.
- People who live in remote locations, where access to professional health care is limited or unavailable.
- People who live and work in foreign countries where fluent English speaking therapists are few and far between
- Those who have transport and mobility difficulties.
- Even if you don’t you can avoid annoying heavy traffic and tedious public transport.
- Sufferers of anxieties, fears, and phobia’s that limit their social interactions beyond the home.
- Clients who cannot get away from family or work commitments during normal ‘office hours’.
- No need to put on ‘make-up’ and dress for an outing. Just stay in ‘at home’ clothes.
- People who choose to see a health professional who is located beyond their geographical location (perhaps for privacy reasons), and
- People who choose to have their one-on-one treatment with Peter Zapfella, because of their own past experiences or his reputation for getting fast, effective results.
From Europe to America, through Asia and throughout the Australian outback, Peter has had countless successful therapy sessions with clients using live Internet therapy services, including Skype, FaceTime, Viber, Messenger, WhatsApp.
“The Skype session with me for my claustrophobia and panic attacks really worked. On Wednesday, I was kept latched to the operating table for well over an hour in total and didn’t panic once.” – Alyson Willis. United Kingdom.
Here are a few benefits of Skype Therapy over visiting a local therapist.
- Online therapy is as effective as ‘in clinic’ therapy.
- Hourly fee’s are lower than’ in clinic’ sessions.
- Added privacy and security. Skype therapy is encrypted or scrambled.
- Online sessions are not only more convenient for you, but they are also more convenient for Peter, so he can be far more flexible with session days and times.
- Peter Zapfella has 25 years of clinical experience, with more than 10 years of experience as a Skype therapist.
- When you pre-purchase one or more ‘Welcome’ Subliminal Affirmation MP3’s you will get a 10% discount off the first (60 minutes) hour of online therapy. (offer does not apply to free and discounted products)
- Peter Zapfella’s first (60 minutes) hour of Skype Therapy is currently just US$99.00* with ‘Welcome’ Subliminal Affirmation MP3’s pre-purchase discount.
- Most clients can successfully deal with their life challenges within a 1 – 2 hour ‘break-through’ session, with NLP and hypnotherapy, and backed up with relevant MP3 and PDF support materials from Peter Zapfella. This conveniently saves you both time and money.
- Compare that to the fees paid to psychotherapists and counselors for sessions stretched-out over many weeks, months and sometimes years. They can up to serious money.
- While it may be new to you, Peter has been conducting Skype therapy sessions with people from around the world for more than a decade. It is now a proven technology so he can quickly facilitate successful results for his clients, almost anywhere in the world.
- Because there are many time-zones across the world Peter offers flexible appointment times for his Skype Therapy clients.

- Get comfortable. Perhaps visiting the bathroom before your session begins.
- To get started simply fill in the Contact Form below.
- Peter Zapfella will tell you the expected session duration and fees, depending upon the relevant life challenges you want to overcome. When he has had the opportunity to read your completed Client Form and questionnaires he can be even more accurate. As a general guide it is usually between 1 and 2 hours, and sometimes 3 hours in ‘break-through’ session.
- Peter Zapfella will provide relevant MP3’s and PDF resources following your session FREE of charge. You also have the option of purchasing other MP3’s which may assist you at ‘Welcome’ Subliminal Affirmation MP3’s
- Fees must be pre-paid no less than 24 hours before appointment day/time. You can use PayPal with your credit or debit card (financial institution fees are extra), FREE bank-to-bank transfer (within Australia) or World Remit.
- Sometimes technology has it’s own challenges. If the Skype Therapy session were to experience technical difficulties, for any reason, we will immediately re-connect (as this sometimes wins a better connection) or we will re-schedule to a better time and day, depending on circumstances).
- If life gets in the way for any reason please let Peter know as soon as possible so an alternative Skype therapy session can be arranged.
- If you postpone a booked appointment your pre-payment will be held in credit for your next session.
- If you abort your booked appointment, without any notice, the prepaid fee will not be reimbursed. Do not expect a refund if you are at fault.
- Peter Zapfella takes care to ensure a positive and successful experience for his clients. However, he cannot be held responsible for those who are sick, drunk, under the influence of drugs, rude, uncooperative or do not follow his suggestions.
- Until recently Peter used bi-lingual people to translate for him during therapy with non-English speaking clients. Now real-time therapy is available in more than 34 different languages using digital translation technology. This is an excellent resource where a client has poor English language skills. Now they can hear in both English AND any one of the languages listed below at the same time. People who speak no English at all can also benefit, although grammar may be less than perfect. New langu8ages will be added in the future.
Chinese (simplified Cantonese) English French (France/Canada) Arabic Spanish (Spain/Americas) Portuguese (Portugal/Brazil) Tagalog Thai Italian Dutch Russian German Korean Japanese Hungarian Swedish Czech Finnish Danish Polish Greek Indonesian Bulgarian Malaysian Hindi Hebrew Croatian Catalan Norwegian Romanian Turkish Ukrainian Slovak Vietnamese
