Online therapy is becoming more popular these days. It is partly because face-to-face sessions are more restricted in the current COVID-19 situation, and also because online therapy offers such flexibility and convenience that allow both you and me to have the sessions anywhere where it is technologically possible (and safe to do so). I offer online therapy through video-conferencing, over the telephone and via e-mail.
Video-conferencing means that we have a session online by using a third party application, such as Zoom, either on a smart phone, a tablet or laptop/desktop computer. Throughout the video-conference, a headset may also be needed, depending on personal preferences.
In subsequent online sessions, we may use therapeutic tools to facilitate conversations (for example to ‘start off’ a session), to measure both goal progress and the effectiveness of therapy, and we may also use certain questionnaires.
During online sessions, I recommend you to have a notebook/piece of paper and pen in case we both wished to make notes of certain elements of therapy.
It is good to note that during online sessions we rely on the quality of network/internet connection which may bring some challenges (e.g. losing connection) that we can easily solve usually.
