Need of online Therapy…
The coronavirus has resulted in stress, anxiety, and fear – symptoms that might motivate a person to see a therapist. Because of social distancing, however, in-person sessions are less possible. COVID-19 is forcing most traditional psychotherapists to adapt their practice to online counseling.
Expatas in Argentina
For those expats who lived here, or were in Argentina for whatever reason, and have moved back home, online counseling, was extremely important. Some expats have been experiencing high anxiety levels as a direct result of not being able to get back whenever wanted. Most of our clients at Estrada Vigil & Medical Group seem to be ok with moving to online counseling, although some have had their resistances at the beginning, after a while both, the therapists and the clients, were able to adapt.
Moving from» in person» to «online therapy»
Even though our professionals at Estrada Vigil & Medical Group can’t wait to get back into the office, and many clients want to go back to face to face sessions, with COVID we all have learned the benefits of online services and are appreciative to serve clients in need around the world. I am sad our profession needed COVID-19 to address online therapy, but the good news is that the benefits will last for generations.

On top of this, with social distancing and self-isolation measures in place, it’s not surprising that it’s having an effect on many people’s mental health. For many, this has raised the prospect of online therapy.
