About Online Counseling
Online counseling, also called telemental health counseling or cybercounseling, can be an important resource for people who live in places where native English speaking therapists are not locally available. It's also a convenient option for people who travel often and would like the continuity of regular sessions while they are away, as well as for people who because of time constraints or other factors simply prefer doing sessions at home.
I don't recommend counseling by skype or other online methods for serious psychological disorders. But for most issues it can be an effective alternative to in-person therapy.
