What is Teletherapy?

Teletherapy refers to mental health therapy provided remotely to patients, usually through online video communication platforms like Zoom, Google Meet, or Skype. With teletherapy, patients can access mental health services from the comfort of their own homes, without the need to physically go to a therapist’s office. 

Teletherapy has become an increasingly popular option for patients, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, when many people were unable to leave their homes for extended periods.
