Coronavirus Concerns & Online Therapy

It is impossible to be unaware of the unfolding situation regarding the Coronavirus Covid-19 here in the UK. I have been getting enquiries from clients and potential clients who are concerned about starting a course of therapy, which might be interrupted by possible quarantine in the coming weeks and months ahead.

Whilst, I know that the situation is deeply troubling for people, I remind people that mental health is an equal partner to physical health and this must be attended to even with the current health scare. Some years ago, I undertook a qualification in working with clients on-line. By on-line, I mean by FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, and even WhatsApp Video to conduct therapy from the comfort of your own home or office.

This is an option that is available to new and existing clients if they do not want to risk travel during the Covid-19 scare. This means that your mental health need not suffer whilst you are protecting your physical health. Now, as I have often said in the past, it is essential that whomever you consult, if they are offering online therapy please ensure that they are qualified to do so. It is just not a matter of setting up a camera and you are qualified to work with online clients. Like clinical supervision, online therapy requires a different skillset than face to face therapy in the consulting room. Admittedly, the skillset is quite similar, but there are additional considerations that must be made when working with a client remotely.

Some potential clients may be concerned that online therapy will not be as effective as being seen at your therapist’s consulting room. Admittedly, it is my preference to work with clients face to face in my consulting rooms, the research evidence shows that online therapy can be as effective as attending weekly sessions at your therapist’s office.
