Advantages of online treatment

April 13, 2021

We will be asked to self-isolate during the coronavirus pandemic, but this has a devastating impact on our mental health. More and more people are seeking help for anxiety, panic attacks, depression and other problems. Some patients who for years have believed their psychiatric illnesses successfully treated notice how, how old demons flare up again. And people who generally have good mental health have anxiety they've never faced before and are looking for solutions.

The problem: to get help you would have to leave the house and expose yourself to an increased risk of getting sick.

Through online treatments, even if you have concerns about leaving your home, you can get help. With online treatment I can support you even from home. All you need: a stable internet connection.

Furthermore, online treatment offers the following advantages:

Convenience: Sessions can be done from the comfort of your home using your computer - so no need to leave the house. That means you could also come to the treatment in super comfortable pajamas.

Privacy: Our society still stigmatizes people with mental health problems, which prevents far too many people from seeking the help they need. With telemedicine, you have absolute privacy.

Time saving: You have no commute, there is no commute and no need to find a parking space.During the appointment, make sure you are undisturbed and in a space where no one can listen and you are comfortable.

Important points for online treatment:

  • During the appointment, make sure you are undisturbed and in a room where no one can listen and you feel comfortable.
  • Make sure you have a stable Internet connection. In case the connection drops, keep your phone handy next to you. In that case, I would call you right away (if both of you try to call, you will end up in each other's voicemail and won't be able to reach each other).
  • Make sure you have plenty of tissues next to the computer.
  • For laptop: is the battery charged or power available?

Currently I use "Zoom" for online treatments, if there are problems with the connection, I also dodge WhatsApp or Signal video call.
