Online Psychotherapy is a modern alternative way to provide psychotherapeutic services. In online psychotherapy, therapist and client use technology in order to participate in a therapeutic session in real time. More and more psychotherapists are beginning to provide, besides conventional face-to-face psychotherapy, the possibility of having online sessions.
Online Psychotherapy refers:
- To those who have difficulties in going to the therapist’s office (either due to distance or disability problems)
- To those who are studying or working abroad and want to communicate in their own language
- To those who have limited time to move (due to work, parenting obligations, etc.)
It is necessary to have a camera, a speaker and a microphone (usually embedded in laptops), an internet connection and a Skype account (If you do not have the application you can download it by following the link https://www.skype.com/).
