Over the years I have made use of the internet in a number of ways to extend the reach of my practice.
Meeting online allows us to maintain your therapy if you are away for an extended period: We can continue the rhythm of our meeting, and resume in person when you return. I have found this useful even for extended periods (one or two years), although the transitions sometimes require careful thought.
If you live some way from Auckland, I have found a mix of meeting in person and online helpful as it reduces the stress of travelling long distances.
Sometimes I have conducted a whole psychotherapy online, although I still prefer to meet in person at least once, if at all possible.
My own experience of consulting with colleagues overseas has been helpful in gaining insight into the benefits and limitations of working this way.
