Abstract

Key points:
Video‐consults feel distant; patients and therapists miss the non‐verbal contact.
Non‐verbal contact during face‐to‐face sessions helps clients to express what is most difficult for them.
Video‐consults are a good alternative when face‐to‐face psycho‐oncological care is too burdensome for patients.
Therapists preferably would continue with video consults for a mean of 28% of their time.
Tips are provided to improve care through video‐consults.
