[Westport, 02/10/2021] – The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health, a private group practice in Connecticut, delivers behavioral therapy via telehealth.
Telehealth has become an effective solution to safe patient care during the Coronavirus outbreak. It provides patients with immediate access to care without the need for in-person appointments. Using telehealth not only reduces the risk of transmission, but also increases convenience and cost savings.
What is telehealth therapy?
Telehealth therapy is providing patients with therapy virtually, usually through video conferencing. It requires access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone and internet. The psychotherapist will usually provide the patient with access to a HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing platform to keep the session confidential and uninterrupted.
As soon as the session starts, both the patient and therapist must stay in a quiet part of their home or office. A calm and empty space allows the therapy to proceed as seamlessly as possible.
Teletherapy can treat all types of mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress, anger management, and major life transitions. In some cases, patients facing complex mental health issues and eating disorders may be advised to receive in-person treatment alongside online sessions.
Benefits of virtual therapy
Since teletherapy can be done in one’s home or office, it eliminates the need to travel long distances just to attend a session. This can be particularly useful for patients with mobility limitations or those residing in remote areas.
Online sessions are just as private as in-person appointments. Teletherapy can reduce nerves and anxieties that come with face-to-face sessions, resulting in easier and more productive discussions.
Remote therapy allows appointments outside of normal office hours, giving patients more flexibility and professionals better control of their time. Thanks to technology, proper work-life balance is achieved and access to health care is improved.
