Requirements for Teletherapy Sessions
There are a few key requirements for teletherapy sessions with one of our therapists. You will need a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, as well as a strong internet connection.
Your therapist will have some ideas for how to set-up an optimal internet connection. We would also want to make sure we schedule your teletherapy sessions at a time during which you will have a quiet, private space from which to engage in your session. Like in-person sessions, teletherapy sessions are generally much more productive when you feel confident that you won’t be overheard or interrupted.
These conditions are important since teletherapy involves meeting with your therapist over the internet. Like a video conference call, these sessions include both video and audio connection, so you and your therapist can see and hear each other in real time. Teletherapy is conducted in exactly the same manner as psychotherapy–although you’re seeing each other through your phone or computer screens, there are no changes to the treatment provided.
