Teletherapy, also known as e-therapy, e-counseling, or telehealth, involves providing mental health services and support over the internet. Rather than in-person sessions conducted in my office, our teletherapy sessions take place over web-based video-conferencing.
Benefits of Teletherapy:
Easier access: Clients who live in remote areas or who have limited mobility or limited access to transportation may be more motivated to participate in teletherapy.
Reduced cost: Teletherapy eliminates the costs associated with travel time and gas.
More consistent therapy: Teletherapy decreases absences due to poor weather conditions or sickness, allowing clients to participate in therapy on a regular basis.
More intense therapy: Teletherapy can be scheduled more frequently, as clients do not have to commute long distances.
Increased progress: Since teletherapy provides more intense therapy, it can accelerate progress.
Psychological comfort: Teletherapy can help with eliminating the social stigma related to receiving mental counseling or other therapy.
