Does Online Therapy Work?
Studies have shown that online therapy can be as effective as seeing a therapist in person. For those who are used to seeing a therapist in their office, it can feel strange at first to do therapy online but usually, it doesn't take long to feel comfortable.
Benefits of Online Therapy
Online therapy has benefits that you may not have thought of. You save time on commuting to your therapist, also allowing you to avoid traffic and construction. This also saves money on gas or parking. You have the benefit of being in the comfort of your own home which can make it easier to open up about sensitive issues.
