The Online Psychoterapy is a way to provide a brief monitor service over the Internet using communication tools such as Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts, Zoom or WhatsApp and email or chat programs. This service therapy is used as voice-only, voice and video or combined sessions. All communications between the therapist and the patient are encrypted, providing a high level of confidentiality. As in the onsite mode, always within the current framework of the Code of Ethics of the General Council of Official Associations of Psychologists of Spain.
This kind of intervention provides a high level of privacy and freedom, as well as a support to those living in isolated places or working abroad, where the opportunity to seek help and support in your district can be very limited.
Millions of people use Skype or Facetime daily, being a good and effective way of communication. As the phone, it is used to talk with therapists and for confidential medical assistance, Skype and Facetime has become an additional method to speak being even safer than the phone, due to the encryption of data used in this kind of communication.
Online Psychoterapy: A breakthrough
People choose to talk to an Online Psychologist for several reasons, including geographical limitations, any physical disability or psychological disorder such as a phobia that prevents you from leaving your own house.
In addition, access to the Online Psychoterapy is not limited to any city or country and may be available via computer or smarpthone. Normally there is more flexibility of times and dates, as the service may be available at certain times -at end of the working day, or early in the morning … – where it would be difficult to attend to a conventional session.
By choosing the exclusive use of voice, we can develop quite well relaxation and meditation techniques, eliminating the distractions caused by other types of stimulation. However using the combined video and audio is similar to theOnsite Intervention. In fact you can use the videoconferencing sessions as a complement to onsite intervention and follow-ups at the end of your therapy.
Just as the onsite intervention, patient privacy is protected by the Code of Ethics for the Professional Psychology and by the rules established for the protection of data of natural persons and the free movement of such data according to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016.
To use this service you need a computer, smartphone or tablet and an Internet connection Broadband (ADSL, Cable or 4G). We will arrange date and time through our mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for our first video and from there we will establish a calendar and schedule.
