Top 10 Benefits of On-Line Psychotherapy

Top 10 Benefits of On-Line Psychotherapy

  1. Clients love the convenience. You can often work with your psychotherapist to schedule times that provide you the utmost privacy in the comfort of your own home.
  2. Clients still see their therapist via a web camera. The multiple visual cues both the client and therapist often need to understand the context of the therapeutic interaction is in place.
  3. On-Line psychotherapy cuts expenses to clients and insurance providers and is generally more accessible, especially to those clients who have difficulty travelling.
  4. On-Line psychotherapy helps clients access services they might not otherwise attend. Clients may talk to friends and family about other issues but, many want to keep their psychotherapy related concerns and struggles private.
  5. On-Line psychotherapy creates a simple vehicle to psychotherapy resources and tools that makes it easier for clients to access, understand, and participate in treatment.
  6. Newly available tools make On-Line psychotherapy more secure than ever. Cronk and Associates uses on-line tools that comply with privacy legislation.
  7. On-Line psychotherapy provides an extra level of safety to some clients who may have difficulty being with a therapist in person, at least initially.
  8. Some clients find attending a psychotherapist office intimidating. It is far easier for them to relate to their therapist using the internet.
  9. Many clients don’t want to work with professionals in their community. Privacy just can’t be totally protected in smaller communities and within traditional psychotherapy settings.
  10. On-Line psychotherapy lets you work with your preferred therapist. Many clients are directed to providers but don’t build rapport with the assigned therapist. On-line services help clients move to a therapist who they are comfortable working with.
