A key component of the therapeutic relationship is trust. This may seem cliché but most can't trust their spouse, mom, or even their dog. So trusting a complete stranger is complex.
The biggest barrier for people to seek and access care is knowing where to go to get care. There are ads and commercials for medication but rarely do I see the same for therapy. It's like it the unspoken thing people do but it's okay to take diabetes medication. Therapy needs the same attention as all other services. The stigma for therapy is a barrier for people to obtain therapy as well. The fact that therapy is not advertised people have to ask around. However, therapy sometimes has a stigma associated in some cultures. Remote therapy is way to break that stigma barrier and provide more access to people that wouldn't leave their home for a therapy session.
The approach I use is therapy is eclectic and creative which are pieces of my personality. It is important that the individuals that I work with to foster change have an opportunity to experience fun during their remote session. Although, they could experience hard events in their life people come to therapy to be uplifted and inspire to change.
