Online therapy can be really convenient for those who wish to see me but for whom distance or time constraints make things difficult. It's also a great way for people to access therapy who live in areas where options are limited. Online therapy is very effective and I really encourage you to explore the idea if you think it could work for you.
Because it is different than face-to-face meeting (especially early in therapy), I've included some things to consider below. I hope this helps.
Things to consider!
Online therapy can be just as effective as meeting in person, but there are some differences. For example, counselling for certain issues may be more difficult through a screen. Another example, sometimes things like longer silences, which can feel very natural when physically together, can feel different onscreen. We can talk about this more in our consultation. If physically possible, I do recommend meeting once or twice in person before starting online therapy, but this is not essential. If you are in doubt about whether online therapy is right for you, my suggestion would be to go for it and see.
