For those who have done teletherapy and actually got a benefit from it, why was it better for you then in-person therapy?
I ask mainly because we have done teletherapy in the past with a previous therapist (pandemic then she switched to online). Our 50 minute sessions became 45 minutes, then eventually became 15 minutes (because we could not stomach her anymore).
What also did not help is that we were doing this at home. So, we were always panicking about our parents overhearing us or knocking on our door. So we felt as if we had to be extra careful of the words that we were saying.
And, as we go to college who might want to look in doing teletherapy again, or we might have to drive an hour or more for a therapist who might specialize in Dissociative Disorders and Trauma.
I still think that we will be nervous talking out loud to a computer, and hopefully we will be in a quiet place to do so.
Just want to know if there are benefits to teletherapy that still make it worthwhile.
