One of the most common concerns is whether therapy actually works online.
There are studies that show online therapy, including hypnotherapy is effective. It certainly isn’t second rate to receive therapy this way. A 2018 study of the effectiveness of Skype Hypnotherapy for IBS found ‘This study shows that Skype hypnotherapy is highly effective in refractory IBS’. Link to the study.
In 2016 it was shown the treating depression via an internet-based intervention ‘is equally beneficial to regular face-to-face therapy. However, more long term efficacy, indicated by continued symptom reduction three months after treatment, could only be found for the online group.’ Link to the study.
