Online therapy vs face-to-face
Benefits of online therapy >>
This type of therapy has a number of benefits.
Meeting with your therapist online saves you time commuting. Life can get busy at times and online therapy makes it easier for those struggling with time to get access to therapy, without having to leave the house
You can go on holiday without missing any appointment with your therapist. Also, if you live in a more remote area, you don’t have the problem of travelling long distances to see a counsellor. Anywhere you go, you can take us with you!
It is easier to fit the therapy sessions if you take them online. Whether that means having the sessions at lunch break from a safe place in your workplace, or home the first time in the morning or last time at night, you only need a computer and internet connection.
