When you first hear about online therapy for mental well-being, there is always a hesitation and a question. Will this work? Is it effective. Is it as good as face to face therapy?
While there is research which validates that online therapy is as effective as face to face, we wanted to dig deeper into our own data and see what our clients prefer – online vs face to face sessions.
We look at our data for the last 1000 sessions and here is what we found:
66% preferred an video based online therapy session
19% preferred a telephone based therapy session
15% preferred a face to face in person session
Many of our clients come for one session in person and do the rest of the sessions online via our secure platform. Online is much more convenient and can be done from the comfort of house/office. This is also convenient for clients who are in smaller towns where they don’t have access to a therapist or don’t want to go to a clinic.
We would like to hear from you. What do you think?
