Busy people are everywhere - executives, lawyers, entertainers, parents of young children, students and many others - share a common challenge: their hectic or unpredictable schedules make it difficult to reserve time for health care appointments. When treatment involves multiple appointments at a specific medical facility, with travel time and waiting room delays, the challenge is compounded.
Within the field of mental health, many people simply forego the treatment they need or desire, because their busy lives preclude a commitment to attend regular therapy or life coaching sessions. Left untreated, many psychological problems worsen over time. When treatment is postponed or appointments frequently missed, the client ultimately may require more intense or longer lasting therapy.
Until recently, only in-person therapy was available. However, dramatic advances in communications technology, such as Access to Therapy Network create opportunities for far more convenient high quality access to therapy and coaching through the use of video conferencing. According to a steadily growing body of research, video conference therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy. As a direct result, the provision of mental health services via video conferencing has become an increasingly routine component of mental health services delivery throughout the U.S.
