Televideo Therapy is an emerging form of therapy that many clients are finding to be a helpful alternative to physically traveling to their therapist office. Televideo Therapy gives people the ability to instantly access and engage in therapy with their provider via computer, tablet or smartphone.
Some of the benefits that clients have found with using this form of treatment include: - Allows them to be able to see therapist with no travel time required. This is especially helpful for those whose working hours are in conflict with available appointments and they cannot leave their workplace.
- People can chose to be in the comfort of their own space while discussing strong emotional issues with a professional.
- A person can switch to a televideo appointment at the last minute if they run into an issue with making it to our office (e.g. sick child or car trouble)
- It can also significantly cut back on any stigma individuals feel by being seen in a therapy office.
- Can allow for the instantaneous sharing of electronic worksheets, readings or toolkits offered by the therapist.
The success someone might find with televideo therapy is strongly related to their comfort level with using this technology. This format isn't for everyone however if you are someone who is used to Facetime or Skype with others this may be a resource for you.
