What is it?
Online consultations are where, a client and therapist work together through the medium of online communication rather than in face to face sessions.
Online psychotherapy may offer a variety of mediums through which to work. These include instant message sessions, telephone consultations or video call consultations.
It differs from traditional Psychotherapy in that the practitioner and client are not in the same room during their work together.
It is similar to traditional psychotherapy in that:
It takes place within a boundaried setting, in pre-booked 50 min – hourly consultations.
It is bound by the same standards of confidentiality as face to face psychotherapy.
It is dependent on an open and honest relationship between client and practitioner.
It requires the practitioner to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for the client to explore the depths of themselves
It requires of the client a commitment to attend consultations and to work.
Why choose it e-psychotherapy
It is not restricted by geographical location or the limits imposed by local service availability.
Practitioner profiles can be viewed before making the appointment so that clients can gain some insight into the practitioner that they feel they would work best with, before committing to a consultation.
It offers more time flexibility as it is not restricted to 9-5 office hours. As sessions can take place without travel, the time requirement of attending psychotherapy can be dramatically reduced.
It offers further confidentiality, because it can be accessed from home and therefore does not require attending at a centre, which for some may delay initial contact through the anxiety of being seen.
It offers a convenience which enhances empowerment and independence to those who may require assistance to physically attend for face to face psychotherapy.
These sessions may take place through three online mediums, instant chat via a secure encrypted service provider and telephone psychotherapy via Skype and video call psychotherapy also via Skype.
Video call consultations take place through Zoom. Both the client and therapist are visible to each other. Simply email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 35387 7773128 to schedule a online consultation
