I say YES unequivocally. I have been using it for years in my practice and find it to be as effective and in some cases more effective than in-person therapy.
Teletherapy is described as any sort of consumer contact through a third-party network where advice is offered remotely without being in person. Communication channels can include mobile, Skype, face time, hangouts, text, and email.
The hustle and bustle of every day life can be so overwhelming. We try to keep our schedules on our phones, computers, and written paper schedules in our purses/bags.
Typically we are able to keep things organized. When it comes to scheduling a tele therapy session – it is easy for all parties as they do not have to travel anywhere and can enjoy their session right form home. This is especially helpful in marriage therapy when both have to coordinate their schedules to meet in the same place. Tele therapy simply makes scheduling so much more convenient.
As a result there is a much lower risk of canceled sessions by either party.
