Counseling and therapy services are becoming more widespread, as people continue to prioritize their mental health and reach out for the mental health help they need, when they need it. Unfortunately, sometimes certain obstacles stand in our way of obtaining these services, be it the cost or lack of scheduling flexibility (on our end or the counseling practice’s end). Fortunately, online counseling at Thriveworks Attleboro, MA addresses many of these obstacles and improves access to mental health services.
Online counseling, or virtual counseling, is simple: Instead of coming to the office to meet with your counselor, you do so over the phone or video chat. This is a great alternative to in-person counseling, especially for those who are looking for a convenient and affordable option. If you’re interested in exploring counseling by phone or video, reach out to Thriveworks Attleboro. We are happy to get you set up with online counseling services, whether you choose phone counseling or video counseling. Either way, our counselors will be here to help you via the virtual medium of your choosing. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
How Do I Meet with an Online Counselor?
If you’ve decided to pursue online counseling or you’re interested in online counseling benefits, you are in the right place. Online counseling at Thriveworks Attleboro, MA is simple and beneficial. You’ll get to choose between two virtual counseling options: these include video counseling and telephone counseling. Here’s how each works:
- Video counseling: This option more closely resembles in-person counseling than telephone counseling, as you still get the face-to-face feel in video counseling. You’ll simply click a link that your counselor sends you to gain access to your unique, secure virtual videoconference.
- Telephone counseling: Telephone counseling is another popular and effective online counseling option. Instead of meeting with your counselor in-person or over video, you simply work with them over the phone. They’ll call you at the agreed upon appointment time.
“Which online counseling options should I choose?” If you’re unsure whether you want to pursue video counseling or telephone counseling, rest assured that you are welcome to experiment. In other words, if you choose video counseling but then decide that you’d prefer to meet with your counselor over the phone, we can accommodate you here at Thriveworks Attleboro.
What Are the Benefits of Online Counseling?
Many people forego the traditional in-person approach to counseling to try out online counseling, due to its many benefits. These benefits include:
To start at the top of the list, online counseling brings with it comfort and convenience. As you might have gathered by now, you can work with a counselor comfortably and conveniently from home if you choose to work with them online.
