If we start being honest about our pain, our anger, and our

shortcomings instead of pretending they don’t exist, then maybe

we’ll leave the world a better place than we found it.”

–Russell Wilson

What Is Online Therapy Counseling?

More and more people are foregoing the traditional in-person approach to therapy and turning to online therapy instead. Online therapy, or internet counseling, involves working with a therapist, counselor, or psychologist over the internet. This is a great solution for people who can’t find a therapist with the right qualifications or specialties nearby; it’s also a great solution for people looking for a more convenient or flexible counseling option.

You can choose to work with an online counselor in a few different ways: via phone calls, videoconferencing, or email/text message. Let’s take a closer look:

  1. Phone calls: This is a popular online therapy option, as you can easily attend your therapy session from anywhere you please. You just have to ensure that you have phone service or Wi-Fi, so that you can answer your counselor’s call.
  2. Video conferencing: This might be the right online therapy option for you if you’re still looking for that face-to-face interaction and connection. Just make sure you’re able to join that video chat when your appointment time comes!
  3. Email/text messaging: Emails and text messages make it easy for you to reach out to your therapist anytime you want or need to. This online therapy option is more casual and offers greater flexibility. Also, instead of communicating with them real-time, you will communicate back and forth over an extended time period.

You’re probably wondering, “Which online therapy is right for me?” All of these options prove effective for different people. Consider your needs and your goals for therapy, to determine which one you might best benefit from. A Thriveworks Boston, MA therapist or counselor can help you make an informed decision too!

Online Therapy Benefits: How Can Online Counseling Benefit Me?

Online therapy offers many benefits, including convenience, comfort, reliability, affordability, and flexibility. To start, online therapy allows you to work with your therapist from wherever is convenient and comfortable for you. This means that it’s also reliable. Instead of having to rush to your appointment after work and risk missing it or running late, you can hop onto your online therapy session from home! Also, external factors like bad weather, sickness, or a disability, won’t get in your way as they might with an in-person appointment.

In addition, online therapy at Thriveworks Boston, MA is affordable and flexible. Most major insurance plans cover online therapy services. Also, our team offers affordable options if you do decide to pay out-of-pocket. Finally, online therapy allows greater flexibility with scheduling. You can likely get in to see your therapist or counselor for your first online appointment within the same day or the following day.
