Tele-health and Therapy With the rise of technology and personal devices in our society, it seems fitting that helping professionals are using technological advances to improve access to mental health support and counseling. Using technology to provide therapy is a creative alternative to face-to-face sessions, where clients are able to talk to their therapist at home for example, during lunch hour, and most importantly, when they need it. What we know about the benefits of telephone and video therapy is that these methods are equally as effective as face-to-face support when it comes to clinical outcomes as well as client satisfaction[1][2]. There is also increased flexibility in timing of appointments and geographical reach, as well as augmented anonymity. Studies comparing the effectiveness of face-to-face therapy to telephone and video therapy have concluded that there is no significant difference in outcome. In other words, clients improve equally through both methods of therapy. In fact, tele-health can oftentimes produce greater attrition rates, because of the flexibility of location and timing when meeting your therapist virtually[3]. This is particularly attractive in large areas like Renfrew County, where clients can choose to work with a therapist in a neighboring town, without having to find transportation to that neighboring town.
