Are you struggling with self-doubt, feeling like you're never quite good enough, or constantly comparing yourself to others? Are these feelings holding you back from opportunities, from forming meaningful relationships, or simply from experiencing joy and satisfaction in your everyday life? Do you wish for a life where you feel confident and valued, capable of stepping into social and professional situations without that inner critic holding you back? Or perhaps anxiety is your constant companion, a relentless voice that colours your world with worry and fear, making ordinary tasks feel impossible.

Life can get complicated. We find ourselves experiencing its ebbs and flows: between struggle and joy, challenge and accomplishment, loss and finding new paths. Life can be messy, frustrating, and fun, from becoming a parent and raising a family or not (and maybe with a partner) to career and home commitments to parents getting older. Having an accepting, non-judgmental person to talk to about our experiences, fears, and hopes can be nourishing: a place to untangle thoughts, connect to ourselves, and find self-acceptance regardless of our neurotype.

While the people in your life are important to you, you may feel unsettled in your relationships as you try to cope with having a lack of peace and contentment. You may also feel lonely and isolated as your relationships simply aren't thriving as you would hope. Self-doubt and a lack of confidence sometimes add to the weight of worry and sadness you may be experiencing. Finding it difficult to express your needs and wants, you feel at a loss, which can often lead to hurt, frustration, or anger. Your heart seeks connection, but it seems far from reach.

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialised therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
