Getting to a psychology appointment can be hard. There are only so many hours in the day and taking the time out from work, or organising
childcare can sometimes feel all too much. Online psychology or telehealth therapy may be the perfect solution. You can attend an online
session on your lunch break or speak with a highly qualified psychologist online while the kids are sleeping.
Online therapy sometimes called telehealth or e-therapy works in much the same way as if you were to attend an appointment at a psychology
or wellness practice, the only difference is that you will join your psychologist via video. Your online psychologist should use secure
HIPAA compliant video conferencing software to ensure your confidentiality is maintained.
For many people online or telehealth therapy offers a number of other benefits including being able to attend therapy more regularly, access to highly qualified online health practitioners with experience in your area of need, and eliminating travel time that can be spent focussing on other important things such as family or work commitments. Online therapy can also provide an opportunity to access therapy in situations where you may feel uncomfortable attending a psychology practice. For some people just the thought of coming into the practice can be anxiety provoking and they feel much more comfortable being able to video call in for their appointment from the comfort of their own home.
Whatever the reason may be if you are having difficulty getting to face-to-face psychology sessions, trying online therapy may be the answer you have been looking for.
