What is Cyber Counselling/Therapy?
The global economy is expanding. In the past, most of our service

all over the country and the world because of electronic communication.
Because of the expanding global economy distance coaching/therapy also

to the individual. If you are considering this mode of counselling you
need to know the advantages and the limitations.
