The growth of broad band high speed internet and the widespread availability of new cheap or free communication software and hardware has mean's that it is becoming much easier and simpler to work with clients online, making geographical location much less of a problem. Cognitive behavioural Psychotherapy requires the therapist to listen to you, and observe you as we talk, so provided you have a webcam, headphones and a microphone, the online experience will be very similar to actually attending a face to face session.
