You are not alone in this crisis. Tele-therapy offers the availability of treatment options to individuals in case of interruption or emergency, and who also live in areas where specialty services are less common, or who don’t have the luxury of time.
There are a couple of things that need to be adjusted, but other than that, there’s not much of a difference. And studies have suggested that the outcomes of in-person and telehealth are the same.
In terms of the nonverbal cues and body language, with an excellent service and connection, you can pick up on those just as much as you can in person.
As it is with discussing any confidential information, privacy is of the utmost importance. If you have a private office or a quiet space in your home, that will work best --- for confidentiality and for staying engaged.
Staying present and engaged is really paramount to treatment via in-person or tele-therapy.
