What is online therapy?

With Thriveworks, Online therapy is an effective alternative to in-person therapy services in which a client can speak to a Thriveworks therapist remotely via online video conferencing.

How long does online therapy last?

Online therapy can last for a few months to years depending on the goals and symptoms of the client. The treatment process will be unique to each client and lend itself to their specific concerns, which means that the time it takes to treat them will always be different. Timing is also up to the client themselves; they are free to stop therapy whenever they please, especially if they feel they have reached their goals and addressed their concerns.

Online Counseling: What Is It? How Does It Work?

You might know it as online counseling, online therapy, internet counseling, or teletherapy. They all refer to the work you can do with a counselor over the internet! You’ll have a couple options in terms of how you’d like to meet with your counselor each week: phone counseling or video counseling. If you choose the former, you’ll work with your counselor in real-time over the phone. Just answer their call at the time of your scheduled session. If you choose the latter, you’ll meet with your counselor over video chat instead. Just hop into the videoconference using the link they send you!

Online counseling has transformed over the years, but it has been around for decades. It first began as mental health hotlines and mental health discussion boards! Today, it includes those services as well as one-on-one work with a licensed mental health professional. If you’re looking for personalized care from a caring counselor, just give us a call. We’re here to help.

What Are Online Counseling Benefits?

Online therapy is a valuable service. Many people will attest to this, including those trying counseling for the first time as well as those who switch from in-person counseling to online counseling. Often, these individuals most enjoy the convenience and the comfort that they find in online counseling. Let’s take a look at these as well as several other major online counseling perks:

  1. Comfort and convenience: These two go hand in hand. Because you can attend from home, you get to experience major comfort and convenience. You don’t have to leave the house to commute to your session; you can simply hop on your counseling call or video session from home.
  2. Efficacy: You’ll be happy to hear that online counseling is an effective counseling option, too. You aren’t sacrificing any of the progress that you could make with a counselor in an in-person session. In fact, some people find that online counseling is even more beneficial to them. For example, if you have a hard time opening up in-person, you might find it easier to do over the phone or in a videoconference!
  3. Reliability: Additionally, online counseling ensures greater reliability. You can rely on having your session and you don’t have to worry about running late to your appointment (or having to cancel/reschedule) due to traffic, bad weather, or other unforeseen events.

Comfort, convenience, efficacy, and reliability can make online counseling the right therapy counseling option for you. If you’re ready to welcome these benefits into your life, reach out to Thriveworks in Austin, TX today. We’ll get you scheduled.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
