Is online therapy effective?
Online therapy has been researched and studied for many years - even before the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 caused many therapists to turn to utilizing virtual therapy!
The article, “The Effectiveness of Online Cognitive Behavioral Treatment in Routine Clinical Practice”, published in PLOS ONE in 2012, reviewed a study of online CBT therapy. The author’s conclusion was that “Results suggest that online therapist-assisted CBT may be as effective in routine practice as it is in clinical trials.”
Another article, “Computer therapy for the anxiety and depression disorders is effective, acceptable and practical health care: An updated meta-analysis”, published by Elsevier in The Journal of Anxiety Disorders in 2018, reviewed the results of an examination of data from several studies about “internet Cognitive Behavioral Therapy” (iCBT) as a means to identify trends. The conclusion from the updated study was that “The conclusions drawn in the original meta-analysis are now supported: iCBT for the anxiety and depressive disorders is effective, acceptable and practical health care.”
Our team has been providing online therapy for some time now, and we have seen how it has helped clients toward recovery from their eating disorder.
Who can do online therapy?
Online therapy may not be the best fit for everyone but it is a great option for those who:
appreciate the convenience of not having to drive to and from therapy sessions
have access to reliable internet connection
are able to have a private space in which to talk freely
want the comfort of being in their own environment during therapy
are comfortable using technology
For some individuals, such as those without reliable internet or those with self-harm thoughts, online therapy may not be the best option.
How does online therapy work?
