Tele therapy is therapy via video call. Studies have shown that it is as effective as face-to-face therapy in treating depression and anxiety.
The main benefit of online therapy is that the service is more and more accessible because it can be very difficult to find the right therapist for the client in the same city and at the same time.
In addition, video-assisted distance therapy can be even better for starting therapy, as it is easier to talk about difficult and perhaps embarrassing life situations remotely. Among other things, therapists have found that restrained client encounters may open up in new ways when clients are better able to express their feelings remotely.
Improved healthcare services thanks to high-speed internet connections are one of the positive aspects of technological progress.
”Access to therapy has long been a challenge in Finland. The number of clients in need of therapy and the number of therapists in certain cities simply do not match,” the study concluded unequivocally.
It’s also great that people in small towns can choose a therapist from hundreds of therapists, whereas in their own town there would only be a few, if any.
