Psychotherapy and online therapy

What is Psychotherapy?

   I believe that psychotherapy is a process it is a journey either to treat psychological disorders and/or distress and discovery. Distress and discovery in this case can also be defined as a search for one self, for meaning in ones life as well as the meaning of the individual’s happiness.

   In psychotherapy, the psychologist helps people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives. Psychologists apply different techniques to help people develop more effective habits. Psychotherapy is a treatment; it is based on trust and the relationship between an individual and the therapist. A psychologist provides a supportive environment that allows you to grow and through life coaching achieve wellness. You talk openly in therapy with the therapist who is objective, neutral and non-judgmental. Most psychotherapists focus on the individuals, although they also work with couples, families and groups. When choosing a psychologist it is important to feel comfortable and relaxed. One of the most important factors in determining whether to work with a psychologist is your personal comfort with that person.

What is online therapy?

   Every day technology makes our lives easier and gives us the ability to do more and more from the convenience of our homes. One can do his/hers shopping online, find reliable information fast and easy on the internet and do even research on the best restaurant in town within less than an hour! Psychotherapy using internet technology can become very convenient, confidential, affordable and above all effective! Using video calls through Skype and other technologies the patient can "see" his/her psychotherapist through any device that supports video calls. Online therapy or counseling is a confidential procedure between the psychologist and the client, in which the psychologist provides psychological services as addressing with anxiety, stress, depression and other mental illnesses as well as life coaching and wellness. In any case the psychologist - psychotherapist is bound by confidentiality and the ethics of the profession. Online psychotherapy is affordable since there not any traveling expences and in most cases the hourly cost of a psychotherapy session is a lot less than the cost of a session at the psychoterapist office. Clients can meet with their psychologist without be seen by others if they use online psychotherapy. It's definatelly more convenient and confidential since lots of people don't like to be seen at a psychotherapist's office or going in and out of it. Many people that are not able to travel can see a therapist now at the convenience of their homes. Busy people that are travelling or have lots of activities can see a psychotherapist since they will only spend the time for their session. They will not need to travel to an from the psychotherapist's office.
