YOU CAN ALSO FIND ME ONLINE!
Online therapy serves to connect psychologist and patient. Not only does it save time and money otherwise spent commuting, but it allows the patient to choose their therapist based on competence rather than location. Some patients may also dread the idea of bumping into their psychologist during their normal routine, and avoiding this becomes simple if you choose a psychologist far from your area of residence.
There are some considerations before committing to online therapy sessions. These considerations include, but are not limited to:
the cost of data – capped/uncapped internet?
the stability of your internet connection – stable enough to have a video call?
the sound quality of both your input and output devices,
the feasibility for a safe, confidential and private space for your online sessions.
With online sessions it is important to bear in mind that the privacy of your sessions is partially in your hands. Feel free to ask for tips about creating a conducive space for online therapy!
