What are the benefits of online video therapy?

Online video therapy has obvious benefits, like eliminating travel time, parking, and other concerns that can interfere with in-office appointments and Pandemic limitations. But some patients find they prefer video therapy, and feel it’s more effective because they find it easier to open up about their feelings when they can do so in a private, comfortable space such as their own home.

Is online video therapy as effective as in-person therapy?

Several studies comparing online therapy with in-person therapy show it to be equally effective for certain types of treatment, such as cognitive behavioral therapy. Research also indicates that several mental health conditions can be successfully treated with online video therapy, including hypnosis.
