What Is Online Counseling?
Online counseling is also known as telehealth or teletherapy. You might be wondering, “Isn’t counseling supposed to take place in a counseling office?” That might be the traditional approach, but there are many other forms of counseling too, each engineered to accommodate those with specific needs and preferences. This includes counseling online!
There are two main methods of online counseling: phone counseling and video counseling. If you are easily intimidated by technology, don’t worry. Thriveworks Aurora makes it very easy to utilize online counseling. If you opt for video counseling, your therapist will send you a simple link to follow at the time of your appointment. As long as you have Wi-Fi and a safe, comfortable spot to talk with your counselor, you’re good to go! The same goes with phone counseling, except your counselor will call you directly at the time of your appointment.
Should I Try Online Therapy?
Some people go to online therapy out of necessity. In other words, they can’t make it to the office for any given reason. Others simply prefer to attend their session from the comfort and convenience of home. Whatever draws you to online therapy, Thriveworks Aurora is here to meet your needs. People have chosen online counseling at Thriveworks Aurora for many reasons including:
- They’re looking for a counselor with specific specialties: Counselors have different specialties including the age groups they help, the modalities they offer, as well as the specific mental health challenges they can help their clients address. If you’re looking for a counselor with a specific specialty, online counseling can help you find the right one.
- They’re in search of flexible scheduling options: Some people don’t want to go through the trouble of driving to and from another appointment. With online counseling, you can receive the professional help you’re looking for without going out of your way.
- They feel more comfortable attending counseling from home: We offer comfortable, modern office spaces. Still, some people would simply prefer to prefer their appointment from home if given the option! We totally understand and accommodate this preference.
- They want greater reliability: Finally, many of our clients are in search of greater reliability. They don’t want to worry about uncertain weather, traffic, or other external factors that could get in their way of meeting with their therapist. Online counseling eliminates many of these uncertainties.
These are just a few scenarios that many people find themselves in. In many cases, you might find that online counseling solves the problem at hand and allows you to accomplish meaningful work with your counselor over the phone or video chat.
Does Online Counseling Really Work?
Many people question if online counseling is as effective as in-person counseling. As we touched on earlier, research shows that in many cases it is! In fact, for some people, online counseling proves even more effective, as they feel more comfortable opening up with their therapist via a virtual medium. Our online counselors have helped people work through:
- Relationship issues
- Low self-esteem issues
- Lack of fulfillment
- Career stress
- And more!
Online counseling is also an affordable counseling option. Many insurances now cover online counseling by video and they’re starting to cover online counseling by phone as well. If you have any questions about insurances or self-pay options at Thriveworks Aurora, we’d be happy to help!
