Things to Know About Terappin

We have answered some questions you might have about Terappin

Online therapy is professional mental health counseling services provided via the internet, primarily through live video conferencing between the client and therapist in a virtual environment. This type of therapy is also known as e-therapy, teletherapy, telemental health, and online counseling. Online therapy, which rapidly gained popularity due to the isolation and remote living caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, continues to maintain and even increase its popularity as the challenging conditions imposed by the pandemic gradually diminish. Unlike traditional face-to-face therapy, online therapy allows individuals to participate in therapy from any environment at a time that is convenient for both the client and therapist, as long as the necessary conditions are met to maintain the flow of therapy. Therefore, online therapy provides flexibility beyond spatial and even temporal boundaries for both parties involved.

One of the biggest doubts about online therapy is whether it is as effective as face-to-face therapy. People may worry that sessions conducted without meeting their therapist in person will have no therapeutic effect and that all their efforts, both material and spiritual, will be in vain. We would like to completely dispel any doubts by answering this question clearly: 'Yes, online therapy works.' Online therapy works just as well as face-to-face therapy because the only difference is that the parties are brought together in a virtual environment. The therapist and the client reach each other from their own quiet and calm places instead of a therapist's office or a hospital environment, and the process continues in this way. Therapy does not lose any of its qualitative functions, and there is no decrease in the duration of therapy.

Although everyone has the right to apply for online therapy, unfortunately, we cannot say that online therapy is suitable and beneficial for everyone. Below are the situations where therapy with a therapist in person is considered more appropriate than online therapy:
  • Clients who are prone to suicide
  • Clients who harm themselves
  • Clients who experience delusions and hallucinations
  • Clients who cannot provide therapy conditions in their environment (For example, those who have to participate in therapy in a crowded and noisy environment, those who do not have a stable internet connection, etc.)
Except for the client situations listed above, if there is no exceptional circumstance, therapists do not see any harm in starting or continuing the therapy process with their clients online.

Since online therapy fees are determined by the therapists, it is not possible to give a specific fee; however, it is worth noting that online therapy does not lead to any loss or deficiency in the quality of therapy. Likewise, conducting therapy online does not impose more responsibilities than traditional therapy. Therefore, the average fee per session of online therapy sessions may vary depending on the therapist's education level, experience, applied therapy methods, and conditions. However, don't let this uncertainty discourage you, online therapy fees on Terappin have wide price ranges to create an accessible therapy opportunity for everyone, regardless of budget.

You can start therapy with all therapists where the "Start Therapy" option is active, within a maximum of 15 minutes after making your payment.
