Online Video Therapy Q & A

What is online video therapy?

Online video therapy enables the skilled experts at Thriving Mind Psychology to provide high-quality treatment to you in the convenience of your home, office, or another location. Using web-based video conferencing software, your therapist or psychologist provides many of the same types of therapy that are available in-clinic, with the same personal attention and quality as face-to-face appointments.

What are the benefits of online video therapy?

Online video therapy has obvious benefits, like eliminating travel time, parking, and other concerns that can interfere with in-office appointments. But some patients find they prefer video therapy, and feel it’s more effective because they find it easier to open up about their feelings when they can do so in a private, comfortable space such as their own home.

Is online video therapy as effective as in-person therapy?

Several studies comparing online therapy with in-person therapy show it to be equally effective for certain types of treatment, such as cognitive behavioral therapy. Research also indicates that several mental health conditions can be successfully treated with online video therapy.

Which conditions can be addressed with online video therapy?

The highly qualified experts at Thriving Mind Psychology have experience using online video therapy to address several mental health conditions, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues

Online video therapy is also useful for life coaching sessions.

What do I need for an online therapy appointment?

For your online therapy sessions, you’ll need a computer with a high-speed internet connection, a camera, and a microphone. You’ll also need to be in a quiet, private room during your appointment.

You may need to download special videoconferencing software before your first appointment. After your consultation, your practitioner provides you with all the information you need to get ready for your first online video therapy appointment.

Do I need to visit the office or can all my therapy happen online?

The experts at Thriving Mind Psychology recommend that you meet with your therapist or psychologist in person for your initial consultation. Depending on your needs, they may suggest that you also have periodic face-to-face appointments. 

In some cases, in-office sessions aren’t required if distance or other individual factors prevent you from attending therapy appointments in person.
