Online Video Counseling
Online Video Counseling or “Telecounseling” via video or phone is a viable form of treatment to promote continuity of care when the client or the practitioner cannot physically be present in the practitioner’s office. This will be real-time counseling or life coaching by computer, tablet or phone at a scheduled appointment time.
Online Video Counseling is very effective for most clients but may not be the best venue for some people.
