Title:
Counsellors and Psychotherapists’ perceptions of therapy on the internet
Authors:
Mansfield-Osborne, Lynn
Abstract:
The internet’s potential as a therapeutic tool is examined. The study incorporates a postmodern perspective and uses Discourse Analysis as the method for analysis. The research question, Counselling/Psychotherapy is as effective as face-to-face, was explored with six participants. Communicating via synchronous and asynchronous email is examined and this study proposes that conducting counselling and psychotherapy via email will continue to play an important role despite other technical possibilities being available on the Internet. The results suggest that using the internet as an adjunct to face-to-face therapy can enhance effectiveness. In addition, the internet offers unique opportunities for certain client groups who are, for many reasons, unable to attend face-to-face therapy.
