Thread: E-Therapy

  1. E-Therapy

    I read an interesting article in this month's Health magazine about E-therapy where counselling is provided via email, online, etc. Is anyone aware of a psychologist who would provide this service in the Ottawa area with face-to-face follow-ups every now and then? It sure would be convenient !!

    There are some problems inherent in doing therapy that way. I have, when necessary, had some sessions with a client via telephone, but only after I have met and assessed the individual in person first. Sometimes, there are good reasons why periodically this is necesssary or desirable but it's far from ideal.

    Having tried e-therapy briefly (by e-mail), I can say it's like fast food. It's convenient, but it's not cost-effective in the long-term since it lacks in substance. If you have ever talked to a depressed friend or relative over the phone, you know the advantage of being there in person to get a better grasp of what is going on.
