Starting Online therapy

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. Online sessions are just as effective as in-person treatment, but they can also provide added benefits like reduced travel time, saving money on transportation or childcare, and increased access to care.

How does online therapy work?

Online therapy works much like traditional in-person therapy but takes place through secure video conferencing. Clients can attend Online therapy from any safe place they choose that has access to the internet, whether that be their home or another easily accessible place. Like in-person treatment, a therapist will work with their client to address their concerns, create goals, and establish an effective treatment plan.

What is the best option for online therapy?

There is no best option for online therapy—instead, it’s best to focus on finding a provider that meets your speicifc needs and with wom you can form a professional connection with.

Is online therapy just as effective?

Yes, online therapy is just as effetive for many clients as in-person sessions.

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.

How much does online therapy cost?

Our Thriveworks therapists at Thriveworks in Bedford, NH accept most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Need more help deciding?

How are you really feeling? No matter how we ask this question, you’ll probably respond the same: “Oh, I’m fine.” “I’m good!” “I’m just chugging along.” But these aren’t always how we’re actually feeling and processing our emotions—in fact, these are usually dishonest responses. It’s easier to respond plainly than talk about how we’re feeling deep down.

  • Stressed
  • Upset
  • Anxious
  • Sad
  • Uneasy
  • Unhappy
  • Overwhelmed

There is a range of emotions that we move through in any given day or week. The list above reflects just a few examples. Maybe someone cut you off in traffic today and it was just the tipping point of your stress load. Perhaps your partner is waiting to hear back about a physical diagnosis and you’re feeling overwhelmed and anxious.

No matter what you’re going through, it’s okay to have a range of emotions. What’s not okay is ignoring those difficult feelings until they boil over and cause you more emotional turmoil than before. When you’re struggling mentally, it can take many different tolls on your body and mind. Rather than pushing them aside, talk through them with the help of a counselor.

At Thriveworks Counseling in Bedford, NH, our team of online counselors is highly trained and qualified to help you work through whatever challenge or problem is affecting your life. If you or a loved one could benefit from working with a mental health professional, consider giving our office a call. We’d love to be of assistance.

Does Online Counseling Work? What to Expect

Some people feel nervous about counseling because they don’t know what to expect. And that’s okay. It’s normal to be worried about something unfamiliar. Although, online counseling is easy and our Thriveworks counselors are compassionate and ready to help. Online counseling offers you many benefits that traditional therapy can’t.

Both telephone counseling and video counseling are effective online counseling options. Choosing between the two comes down to personal preference. If you think you would feel more at ease having a live chat face-to-face, video counseling will be a better fit. On the other hand, if you’d prefer to simply have a phone call, telephone counseling is the option for you.

Regardless of which online counseling option you choose, online counseling can help you make important progress in your life. Our licensed mental health professionals at our Bedford office want you to know how honored they would be to help you with your mental health issues in whichever way feels most comfortable for you.

Plus, online counseling’s added benefits include:

  1. Comfort: Work with your licensed therapist from your home, the office, or any other location that makes you feel safest and most at ease.
  2. Convenience: It’s not always easy to find time in your schedule for extra meetings. With online counseling, travel time and other outside factors don’t play into your busy schedule.
  3. Reliability: With online counseling, you don’t have to worry about meetings running late or poor weather keeping you from leaving your house. Your counselor goes wherever you go.

My wife and I had an excellent experience with our amazing counselor Sam. We reached out for help with communication and intimacy issues and he helped us make real positive change in our lives. The strategies we developed with Sam have made a huge difference and we feel more connected than ever. He was always attentive, thoughtful, and accommodating to our busy schedules. The option to meet remotely or in person was a huge plus for us. We highly recommend his services.
