Online psychotherapy is suitable for people who due to temporary or permanent reasons can’t go out of their (safe) environment.
In this category I am including temporary situations that require people to stay at home. Here we can talk about different kind of physical injuries that needs longer period of time to heal as well as risk pregnancies and Postpartum (postnatal) depression and/or anxiety and/or obsessive compulsive disorder. In the last case, due to a newborn baby, it is often easier for the new mother to be able to have therapy from home. In my personal experience, I also do therapy where the baby can be next to a mother if she doesn’t have babysitter or wants to have baby near her.
More permanent obstacles
In this category I am including social phobia, agoraphobia, anxiety disorder that leaves us with a bitter taste to go to the places where we experienced panic attacked and also other physical challenges that cost us difficulties to visit therapy face to face. Although the first disorders are not permanent per se, it often feels like they are to the person who is experiencing it. You don’t see the end of it. Isolation can become an issue for some when dealing with emotional difficulties and online treatment can help tremendously in that cases.
