Is online art therapy suitable in all cases?
It's important to note that online therapy is not appropriate for everyone, unless there is additional face-to-face psychological support. Due to limited body language cues, the communication between the therapist and the patient, especially those in high risk, may not be the same as in face-to-face therapy. It's up to the assessement of the therapist to decide whether this kind of therapy is suitable for his patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is online therapy suitable for anyone?
This depends on the therapist and the particular case in question. If you are in life-threatening situations or have self-destructive ideas I am not able to help you online. Whether you are an existing patient of mine or not, you should consult your general practitioner immediately and let your loved ones know.
If you have been diagnosed with a mental health condition such schizophrenia, or suffer from addictions to substances or if you need a prescription for drugs, I am afraid we cannot work together online. Please opt for an individual face-to-face therapy.
