Online therapy - artificial distance?
Online therapy might not be for everyone. For some it may feel unsafe and strange. Others may be unfamiliar with and unused to using technology.
For others it can be helpful to meet a psychologist face-to-face first. Once a connection is established it can be easier to proceed with video therapy. Some people may still get the most out of therapy with in-person sessions.
Many people think that it might feel too distanced and that video consultations are not suited for more emotionally charged contexts. Our experience is that this generally is not the case.
Genuine connection, empathic attunement and close emotional encounters definitely still happen in online therapy. Research shows that video therapy works well in conjunction with emotion focused forms of therapy and intensive depth therapy (ISTDP).
Online sessions also allow for regulation of the degree of closeness through camera and screen placement, something which can be very relevant in individual cases.
