Online therapy, also known as e-therapy or e-counseling, is a relatively new development in mental health in which a therapist or counselor provides psychological advice and support over the Internet. This can occur through e-mail, video conferencing, online chat or Internet phone.
Online therapy can occur in real-time, such as in phone conversations and online chat rooms, or in a time-delayed format, such as through e-mail messages. Learn more about the history and current practice of online therapy.
