Online counseling (also known as video counseling, e-therapy, telehealth, Internet therapy, telemental health) works much the same as traditional, in-office, except the sessions are conducted via an easy-to-use, secure video chat. That means, rather than driving to an office a meeting for scheduled sessions, you’ll log in to a HIPAA compliant video platform and you’ll meet with your therapist that way at your scheduled appointment time on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Is Online Counseling Effective?
The short answer is yes. Seeking therapy can be a scary and intimidating and it might feel strange to participate in a way that is not quite how you envision it; however, numerous studies have found that in most cases online counseling has proven just as effective as office-based counseling.
