Is Teletherapy Right for You?

  • Teletherapy has a lot of pros, although it may only be right for some. Ask yourself these questions and decide for yourself:
  • Do you sometimes experience anxiety or depression to the point that getting yourself ready and driving across town is too complicated?
  • Is your life busy? Is it challenging to get from appointment to appointment and still have enough time in the day?
  • Are you physically disabled and find it difficult to get a ride or don’t have a reliable transport service?
  • Do you live remotely with few or no services? Do you live in a small town and prefer that others in your area did not know you were attending counseling?
  • Could you develop a relationship over a video platform, or do you believe in-person would be better for you?
  • Do you experience anxiety the first time you meet someone and think that being in the safety of your own home might make it easier?
Your journey is distinct, and we take a personalized approach to teletherapy counseling. Our skilled clinicians carefully match the most appropriate treatment modality to each client. Even EMDR using teletherapy has proven to be effective. Your therapist will check in with you to make sure that the therapy approach is comfortable for you using teletherapy. You will receive the care and support required to achieve your goals and embark on a path towards healing and growth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teletherapy

Numerous studies have consistently shown that teletherapy is as effective as in-person meetings. In 2014, a study researched PTSD symptoms in 132 veterans. There were two groups of veterans. One group was treated using teletherapy, and another with face-to-face counselors. The improvements from counseling were similar.

In a similar study, two groups of people received counseling for their depression. The group using teletherapy showed slightly better outcomes. These individuals reported more significant decreases in depressive thoughts and feelings. This was compared to those who received face-to-face counseling.

A healthy relationship with your counselor is one of the most essential things needed for improvement. Some clients may find the video platform challenging. This is a valid concern. Teletherapy is different than in-office face-to-face meetings.

However, our experience at Counseling ABQ is most people find it easy to build a relationship with their therapist. We consistently see people improve in both teletherapy and in-office visits.
