Glossary Term: Online Therapy


Online therapy is the provision of professional mental health counseling via the internet. This is usually done through live video chat, a messaging application, email or over the phone.

Why do people use online therapy?

Online sessions make therapy far more accessible for people who experience a disability causing them to be housebound. Online therapy can offer you more privacy than in-person sessions. For example, if video chats make you uncomfortable, you can chat live with an online therapist over text message or via a phone call.

Can therapy work online?

Studies have shown that online therapy sessions can be as effective as when we meet a therapist face to face. While some evidence even suggests that online therapy may be more effective than in-person therapy.
