What is telephone therapy?
Therapy is not just about face-to-face sessions. Many therapists offer appointments through the phone or online platforms. Telephone therapy, also known as over the phone counselling or over the phone therapy, is the same as face-to-face or video-call therapy with a qualified and registered therapist but delivered over a phone call. Telephone counselling and online therapy have become popular as society has moved to a more remote model of communication. With the current technologies, people don’t need to commute to attend therapy, benefiting from the flexibility to work on one’s mental health from home.
Can telephone therapy be as effective as face-to-face?
Yes. The platform used for therapy is not as important as the relationship built between the client and therapist. An important element of therapy is that you feel heard and understood.
