These days when you need to talk to someone about your problems you can do so from the comfort of your armchair. The benefits of on-line therapy mean that you can access therapy anywhere in the world at a time that suits you. No more having to miss time off work, arrange for child care or spend half an hour each way travelling. Many people now enjoy the convenience of talking to their personal therapist and getting support in their own homes and offices where they feel most comfortable.
For mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety and panic; or conditions such as agoraphobia, Skype can offer that first step to getting help. In my own practice I have been providing Skype therapy to people all over the world for some time. Over time little glitches like time delay have been ironed out and with a delivery system close to traditional therapy, Skype can afford all the intimacy of the consulting room with the bonus of internet flexibility.
For the on the move business person where “time is money,” cutting out the journey to and from the consulting room can mean an hour or so, is not wasted travelling. For those in far off countries without access to therapy, Skype really comes into its own. Internet therapy or Skypeotherapy as it is also known, has really hit it off with the younger generation. To be able to talk to your therapist on your mobile in the privacy of your bedroom with no one asking you where you are off to and pay on-line has many advantages. Many men, who traditionally have avoided talking about their problems are nowadays much more likely to access this type of help.
