Online therapy is an innovation that forces the expert analyst to a sudden change of his habits. The ritual and repetitive behaviors play an important defensive role protecting the analyst from persecutory anxieties that, in my opinion, are characteristic and inevitable in analytic practice. Who takes care of his own and other people’s subjectivity, in fact, is exposed to imaginary persecution by the environment of origin. Similar anxieties affect who passes the Pillars of Hercules, or the act of grasping the forbidden Apple. For these reasons, in my opinion, online therapy frequently encountered criticism taking not only a technical character but also ethical. As if this evolution, stripping the practice of the usual ritual experience, might show the bare skin of our "guilty" subjectivity. In this article, I also suggest that, in the case of online therapy, it is important that the analyst does his best to improve the collaboration, rather than act as the subject of attachment.
