Therapy helps you build the skills to face challenges, make wise decisions and discover your birthright to live a full and satisfying life.
Online Therapy, also know as e-therapy, distance therapy, and video therapy, is a fairly new ￼ phenomenon. Yet peer-review research has proven the efficacy of therapy via the internet to the point where it has become a viable alternative to in-person sessions.
Many people find video therapy as good or better than face to face. For instance, it takes less time out of your day (I.e., no drive time), and you can stay in the comfort of your own personal space.
Online Therapy may be a good choice for you whether because of traffic, transit costs, disability, medical conditions, scheduling, or time constraints.
“Many of us do other things while we are talking in informal conversations, and if you don’t watch yourself, it is easy to let that habit slip into your online work,” says Dr. Davis.
Please put your phone, computer, iPad or any other device into “DO NOT DISTURB” mode prior to the session.
Make sure others around you, as well as people who might call you, know that you will not be able to respond to them for the [therapy] the next hour.
NYC-based psychotherapist Jasmin Terrany prefers video sessions over voice. “Over video, I can still feel and experience my clients as if we are in the same room,” she explains. “I can feel when [clients ] are hiding their emotions or when something isn’t being said. This non-verbal communication is integral in the therapeutic process and can still be completely present in a virtual video conference . “
Optimize Your Video Device Location
We will need to see each other clearly. Video sessions should mimic a similarexperience as realistic an in-person encounter as possible.
I have found that it’s best if your device is far enough away so that your hands are free, but not so far that you can’t can’t see me clearly.
