What is remote or online therapy?

← All Topics

Remote therapy, also known as telepsychiatry or teletherapy, can be an alternative to meeting a therapist in their office. Instead, you can use video conferencing or the phone to have an online therapy session. 

If you’re feeling embarrassed about going to a therapist’s office, too overwhelmed to leave the house, or if you have a physical disability, remote therapy can be a great option to receiving therapeutic support. 

Online therapy is also helpful for people who live in remote areas where there are not many therapists or counselors.
