Internet is revolutionizing our way of communicating and relating to one another and psychoanalysis is inevitably influenced by this. The free or low cost worldwide network of human connection allows a person to relate to a therapist in any part of the world either of them may be. This new technological possibility can be useful in various situations: for maintaining continuity of therapeutic work should a person have to travel for work needs; for continuing therapy should the patient move to a different city; for making therapy accessible to people who live in areas where this kind of help is not available; for people who live in close-knit realities where they may feel that their privacy is not sufficiently safeguarded; for those who may not be able or do not wish to go to a therapist’s consulting room. In one way the worldwide network draws therapist and patient nearer but at the same time maintains a distance in their relationship which can be seen as reassuring by a person with feelings of unease. Making an appointment with a psychotherapist and going to his/her consulting room can make a person feel unconfortable as they have to enter a physical and emotional space which is unknown. Online therapy allows the person to speak about himself whilst remaining in his own environment: this can reassure the individual, making psychological help accessible to him in the measure that is possible for him at that time.
