Is Online Therapy as Effective as In-Person Therapy?
You might think that online therapy only became popular during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic definitely made it more popular, but it has been utilized and researched even before we all started quarantining. This means that if you’re looking for virtual eating disorder therapy in Delaware, there’s research to back up its effectiveness!
A Psychology Today article outlined some of the research supporting the effectiveness of online therapy. They cite a 2014 study from The Journal of Affective Disorders, which “found that online treatment was just as effective as face-to-face treatment for depression.” A more recent study from 2018 that they cited was, “Computer therapy for the anxiety and depression disorders is effective, acceptable and practical health care: An updated meta-analysis”. This study found that online cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is, "effective, acceptable, and practical health care."
Another article from the National Center for Health Research summarized several academic research studies on the topic of online therapy. Their conclusion was that “Research has found that online therapy can be effective at treating anxiety, depression, and trauma. There is no difference in patient satisfaction depending on whether therapy is online or in-person, and for either method of receiving therapy, the outcomes are better the more sessions someone attends.”
Our team has been providing online eating disorder therapy for some time now, and we have seen how it has helped clients toward recovery from their eating disorder. So, if you’re considering starting online therapy in Delaware, we are here to help you!

Is online therapy for everyone?
Of course, online eating disorder therapy may not be the best fit for everyone. It can be a great solution, particularly for those who:
are comfortable using technology
appreciate the convenience of not having to drive to and from sessions
have access to reliable internet connection
have a private space in which they can speak freely
want the comfort of being in their own environment during therapy
For some individuals, such as those without reliable internet or those with self-harm thoughts, online therapy may not be the best option.

Of course, we want you to be totally comfortable, so we’ll talk you through how to use the platform, even if you haven’t used other video chat software.
After you contact us and schedule your first session, we’ll send you all the details for how to connect with your therapist.
