Online Therapy, Does it Work?

Online Counselling has been proved to be just as effective as face to face therapy Wagner, Horn and Maercker (2013) when treating depression and reducing asscociated symptoms.

The Question: Is online therapy just as good as meeting a therapist in person?

The Answer: It truly depends on what you need. Certain therapy methods could work where patients receive treatment remotely through newer technologies.

“There are a number of studies looking at telemedicine for different kinds of disorders and they tend to be amazingly effective,” Mary Ann Dutton, professor and vice chair for research in the department of psychology at Georgetown University Medical Center, told The Huffington Post.
