Psychotherapy or talk therapy helps a person gain insight into their thinking and behavioral patterns, medical conditions, or socio-cultural factors that might be contributing to their distress. It provides powerful tools and techniques that help the individual connect the dots in life and manage on-going emotional distress that might impair daily functioning.
While psychotherapists do not provide direct advice, the process of psychotherapy empowers the individual to make decisions that bring long-lasting positive changes in life. Many psychotherapy approaches have proven to be useful across the years. The psychotherapists at The Mind Tab collaborate with the individual and design a treatment plan that works best for them.
Online Therapy at The Mind Tab can be useful if you are looking for a safe space to talk about your distress and attain insights and tools that empower you to improve your overall well-being.
Online therapy at The Mind Tab is not suitable if you are:
- Under 13
- You have thoughts of harming yourself or others
- You are in a crisis that needs immediate care
- You have a severe mental illness that can be better treated by an in-person team of psychiatrists and clinical psychologists
- You are involved in an active legal court case
- You are experiencing a heavy dependence on alcohol or drugs
Online therapy, on average, is as effective as face-to-face therapy (Journal of Technology in Human Services). Studies focusing on specific disorders have found that online cognitive behavioral therapy is effective in treating anxiety disorders (Journal of Affective Disorders). Internet-based mindfulness treatment also seems to be effective for anxiety disorders (Behavior Therapy). For depression, cognitive behavioral therapy seems to be effective when delivered online in real-time by a therapist (The Lancent). Overall, online therapy seems to be beneficial in terms of convenience and effectiveness.
Please feel free to talk to your therapist during your initial assessment if you feel unsure about online therapy.
