17 Nov Crossing International Borders

posted by Bernadette Crossing International Borders

It’s been a little while since we checked in to give you all an update on how things are progressing with the team at the One Stop Psychotherapy Shop, so today I thought it would be a good idea to let you know about international developments and how we are now moving towards being a truly international provider of “online psychotherapy”  

For those of you who have been following our progress into the world of online therapy and video counselling, you will already be aware that our service is aimed at providing treatment without borders and in the last few weeks the One Stop Psychotherapy Shop, has truly become an international provider of online video counselling.

We have seen a spike of enquiries from a number of countries around the world from clients who are seeking late night instant counselling sessions, our research tells us that the vast majority of people who find us are in need of instant access to counselling and psychotherapy and thankfully they are managing to find and connect with us 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Our research also tells us that we are not just crossing international lines with countries just like the UK, but we are crossing borders into countries from all parts of the cultural spectrum, people in need of late night instant counselling sessions and who are specifically looking for online video counselling and psychotherapy come from counties such as:

·         America

·         Canada

·         Australia

·         China

·         Russia

·         India

·         France

·         Brazil

·         Spain

·         Germany

·         Malaysia

·         Austria

One interesting statistic that has caught our eye at head office, is the fact that since the result of the US election on the 9th of November, we have seen the number of visitors from the USA almost triple overnight and that number has remained static for a week.

Our aim is to become a world leader when it comes to providing online therapy and counselling, and to do this we need the support of people like you, we would like to thank each and every person who uses the site, whether you are a client or a therapist providing counselling and therapy online, and we look forward to sharing with you news of our continued growth and success in the months to come.

The future of therapy? Online counselling is MORE effective than face-to-face sessions

  • University of Zurich found virtual therapy more successful than face-to-face sessions
  • Fifty-seven per cent of online patients completed course depression free
  • Only 42 per cent of cases who saw therapist in person felt better
  • Down to paper trail: online subjects looked over notes from time to time

Therapy traditionally consists of sitting on a comfortable sofa while pouring your heart out to a counsellor.

But in this digital age, online therapy is just as beneficial - if not more so - than conventional therapy.

According to a new study from the University of Zurich, therapy sessions carried out online have become

increasingly common in recent years.

Many sites, like and California Live Visit, have created a network of therapists who

use instant messages, emails and even video chats to help their patients.

To investigate how effective this method was, researchers asked six therapists to treat 62 patients suffering

from moderate depression.
