This includes the treatment of various ages, children, teens, adults and couples. A great benefit can come from online therapy with it being easily accessible from various locations.
What does the research show?
In 2015, Canada's Canadian Medical Association Journal studied the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy provided by providers online. Online CBT was found to be more effective than in-person CBT, and in-person CBT has a very high effective rates. Symptoms of depression and other mental health issues were decreased through online counseling.
The Journal of the Academy of Medical Sciences of Bosnia and Herzegovina, reported in 2017, that "Telemental health care can provide effective and adaptiable solutions to the care of mental illnesses universally."
In 2017, Dr. Charles Koransky, published findings from a meta-analysis of 14 research trials of adults with depression receiving cognitive behavioral therapy through live online counseling. While a positive effect was noted at the conclusion of the sessions, it had a "large sustained effect" over time.
