If you’re like most people, you probably wish that you could attend your appointments without leaving home. Well, thanks to the Internet and modern-day technology, now you can.

Telephone Counseling and Video Counseling: Which Is Right for Me?

Working with a counselor online is easy. First, you decide whether you would like to attend your sessions over the phone or by video chat. Depending on which option you choose, your counselor or therapist will call you at the start of your appointment or meet you in the video chat room (they’ll send you the link in advance!). You don’t need any fancy technology, just a telephone, computer, or another device that will allow you to attend your appointment virtually.

If you’re deciding which online counseling option to pursue, know that it really comes down to personal preference. Both options prove effective and can enable you to make meaningful progress with your counselor. That said, here is a little more info about each option to help you better understand which option might be right for you:

  1. Online counseling by phone: Again, one online counseling option at Thriveworks Chapel Hill is telephone counseling. You might decide to take this route if you’d like to forego the normal face-to-face interaction you get in in-person therapy. Some people find that removing this factor from the equation allows them to open up more easily.
  2. Online counseling by video: Another effective and valuable online counseling option at Thriveworks Chapel Hill is video counseling. You might choose to work with your counseling over video instead of by phone if you value that face-to-face interaction but would prefer to attend your sessions from home.

If you still aren’t sure which online counseling option you want to pursue, that’s okay! We can help you work through your options and come to a decision. Keep in mind if you choose one and then decide that the other option might be better suited for you, that’s okay too.

How Can Online Therapy Benefit Me?

Online counseling, also known as online therapy and e-counseling, refers to mental health services that are conducted over the internet. It began as online discussions boards and telephone hotlines, but now it also includes one-on-one work with a licensed mental health professional. The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Chapel Hill, NC can help with a range of mental health problems and other life issues, including:

  • Symptoms of a serious mental illness, like depression, anxiety, or PTSD

  • Challenges in parenting, such as agreeing on a parenting style
  • Poor stress management, personally and/or professionally

These are but a few of many problems one might work with their online counselor to address. The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Chapel Hill are uniquely qualified—thanks to their skillsets, experience, and training—to help you with the above problems as well as many others.

A partner through a journey

★★★★★
It’s difficult to say how someone can impact your life. In a short time Donna has impacted my life and helped me see there is a journey. Although the journey is not clear to me, Donna listens with a compassionate heart and deep intent. She is truly engaged and seeks to help you understand as you tell your story. It is the telling of the story that is more important than the words, a wise person told me. Donna very much wants to hear your story. I’m lucky and grateful to have found her.

Thriveworks Counseling

★★★★★
Meeting with my counselor has been quite helpful to my understanding of a family member's mental health diagnosis. Her ability to clarify behaviors and share her knowledge has been epic, especially related to high-functioning autism, and to proposing different ways that I can work through challenges, all the while ensuring my own self-care.
