Online Therapy

Online therapy is a type of therapy in which a therapist or counselor provides counseling via the Internet. This could be done by e-mail, live chat, voice over Internet, or video conferencing. Benefits of online therapy include higher rate of attendance by the client as compared to traditional face-to-face sessions, possibility of greater openness and honesty because the client feels more at ease and less intimidated, and more accessibility for clients who are in rural areas or unable to travel due to disability.
