Telehealth is a psychological therapy service that is delivered via video conference where both a visual and audio link has been established between a patient and their treating psychologist.
Telehealth can be a cost effective and convenient alternative to the more traditional face-to-face way of providing a psychological therapy service. Patients can access Telehealth from the comfort of their own home and as such, it can help to remove many of the barriers currently experienced by some patients, such as distance, time and cost, which can prevent or delay the delivery of timely and appropriate services and support.
Telehealth is also a great option for patients who suffer from conditions such as agoraphobia or social phobia and may be unable to leave their home to attend therapy.
