Phone Therapy is psychotherapy or counseling provided over the phone. It may be used when either the client or therapist is unable to attend an office visit due to geographical distance or health problems. Some therapists prefer phone therapy over traditional face-to-face methods. Research has shown that phone therapy is just as or even more effective than face-to-face therapy because some clients feel more comfortable talking over the phone than in person. Also, some clients are less likely to drop out of treatment than if they had to travel to their appointment.
