There are groups of people who benefit from Online Therapy. Online Therapy and video conferencing consultations are excellent for busy entrepreneurs, road warriors, stockbrokers, traveling professionals, lawyers, physicians, and clergy with little time or ability to schedule regular weekly office visits. Homemakers, students, and work-from-home individuals can also get the convenience and privacy that Online counseling offers. People desiring low visibility are also good candidates for Online Therapy. In addition, those with physical limitations, which make visiting an office difficult or impossible, are another group who profits from Online Therapy. Lastly, Online Therapy is an option for those individuals who have extreme anxiety about leaving the house.
While I believe Online Therapy offers many advantages over traditional face-to-face therapy, it is not always the best alternative for each person. For instance, traditional psychotherapy allows each person to gain additional information, from the other one, based upon voice inflection, eye contact, and other non-verbal cues. However, Online Therapy, even when done with a video camera, cannot convey the subtle nuances that face-to-face communication achieves. In fact, because of these limitations, I think doing high quality Online Therapy is more difficult than taking part in traditional face-to-face treatment. Notwithstanding, I believe that I have a special talent for conducting Online Therapy. As an example, I tend to have a very efficient and candid writing style, which has been honed through years of varied professional experiences and educational advancement.
Finally, let's face it, while technology has offered us more efficiency, it is not always reliable. With Online Therapy, there is always the possibility that a computer connecting us will not function correctly, even though we are both online and ready to communicate. If something like that were to occur, your appointment will be re-scheduled at no additional expense to you.
