EFFECTIVENESS

Psychiatric evaluation and psychotherapy do not require physical examination (eg palpation), thus remote therapeutic collaboration is fully functional and effective in 98% of the cases according to the published international scientific research. 1,2,3,4,5,6

We have been using distance therapy with great success since 2014 with clients who live across the world.

ADVANTAGES

Remote therapy can have significant benefits for you, as long as you do not feel significant discomfort using multimedia technologies (web cam, microphone):

  • Shorter absence from work and your other obligations.
  • Ease of arrival at your appointment (without the worry of traffic, parking, etc.).
  • Convenience of communication from the comfort of your home or a location of your choice.
