    Hello everyone!

    Since this is all about internet topics, I would like to gather your opinions about online therapy. I am used to go to the doctor's office and have my personal psychological sessions with him but now I heard that this is the new thing going on. Is this even legit and professional? How can we be so sure that we are talking to a professional therapist or counselor?

    Partially agree with Steve - if it’s a quick follow up question from previous session.

    Major part of counseling is paying very close attention to the client. Body language and voice are vital for asking what to follow up on.

    Don’t think I’d want to pay for expert advice while denying that . From me too watching how counselor reacts.

    I am also having same thoughts on this before. Our friend has tried online marriage counseling because both are working abroad but they want to see a therapist immediately. They reported that it's convenient and effective for them.

    Another Dr. Google? Better to make an appointment with your known therapist.

    I didn't know that online therapy is available now, if it's effective then why not. will check out that site.
