VoIP (Voice over the Internet Protocol) is the technology used to transmit voice communication over the internet. The VoIP Skype Counselling and Coaching service is similar to Telephone Counselling, the difference is that calls are conducted via the internet using online messengers, such as Skype to facilitate voice chat. All calls are free wherever you are in the world.
