Tele-Counseling is the perfect solution for road warriors, snow birds, business travelers, and those with mobility issues. Tele-counseling eliminates travel time letting you work your session into a busy day. There are no special equipment requirements. You may use your computer, tablet or smart phone where ever you have web access. Tele-counseling is most often used for one-on-one sessions, but it's great for couples and families in multiple locations.
Although some have expressed concern about the effectiveness of Tele-Counseling, Psychology Today published the results of a few studies confirming it's effectiveness. They found:
- A 2014 study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders found that online treatment was just as effective as face-to-face treatment for depression.
- A 2018 study published in the Journal of Psychological Disorders found that online cognitive behavioral therapy is, "effective, acceptable, and practical health care." The study found the online cognitive behavioral therapy was equally as effective as face-to-face treatment for major depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.
- A 2014 study published in Behaviour Research and Therapy found that online cognitive behavioral therapy was effective in treating anxiety disorders. Treatment was cost-effective and the positive improvements were sustained at the one-year follow-up.
