Show Notes

Teletherapy, also known as online therapy or e-therapy, is a form of professional counseling that takes place remotely through digital communication tools including video calls, phone calls, or messaging platforms. It offers individuals the opportunity to access therapy services from the comfort of their home or any location where they can access the internet.

This form of therapy has become highly utilized over the past several years with the COVID-19 pandemic playing a role in its rise in use and practicality. The convenience and flexibility teletherapy offers makes it an ideal way to focus on your mental health.
