Does it work for all these complex psychosomatic illnesses? And how can just talking help anyone with depression or anxiety?” And then comes the second : “ONLINE? How in the world can e mails do justice to a process so complex?” Psychology is a science. I learnt that when I completed my Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling. It is predictable and the results can be replicated. Psychology is also an art. This is what I learnt when I worked on my Ph.D. thesis on post surgical depression. Therapy is a personal and intense process. It requires a deep understanding between a patient and a therapist. Calling it a science alone didn’t seem to do justice to the beauty of physchotherapy and the process of counseling. When I work online with a client, the process is not mechanised. It is a highly personal interaction between two human beings, albeit with the help of technology. In this day and age where smartphones are constantly with us, having a virtual psychotherapy platform is a must.
