DOES THIS REPLACE TRADITIONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY
It's new ....it's different...it's not face to face...it's another tool... it certainly cannot replace "old fashioned psychotherapy for everything. Further, some disadvantages of doing therapy are: the loss of non verbal communication, the body lingo, the expression, the sighs, the pauses. This is not absolute though, as every person has their own distinctive writing style, and much of your personality can be expressed through writing.
Second, there is a lot more to psychotherapy than discussion of issues on an intellectual level. A lot of it is about the relationship you develop with your psychotherapist. Ultimately though, nothing can really equal the benefits and comfort of a beneficial relationship with a good face to face psychotherapist, especially for people who have been severely damaged throughout their lives and are very chaotic.
The advantages are that you can relax and take as much time as you like to compose your thoughts and put them down in writing, you can do this in your free time, and in the comfort of your own home. As long as you have a computer and a modem - you can access this from anywhere in the world. Another advantage to online therapy is the intriguing combination of distance and closeness that e-mail provides. This usually has a disinhibiting effect - many people find it easier to talk online than to talk to someone who's in real space with them. In short - online therapy is flexible and accesible.
