Have you ever considered talking to a counselor? If the answer is yes, but you have yet to do so, the following might have prevented you from scheduling your appointment:
- Your local counseling office can’t get you in for months
- The closest counseling office is too far away
- Your local counseling office doesn’t have weekend or evening availability
- You’re feeling nervous about meeting with a counselor
These are common obstacles for those who need or want mental health help. Fortunately, Thriveworks Counseling in Charlottesville, VA offers a solution to the above problems and others: online counseling.
Online counseling, or online therapy, means working with your counselor virtually. Here at Thriveworks, you can choose to meet with your counselor over the phone or video. Both are easy, viable options for attending counseling and making important progress in your life. To schedule an online therapy appointment at Thriveworks in Charlottesville, VA, just call our office. Our scheduling team is here to assist you.
What Types of Therapy Can Be Offered Online?
Online therapy is much like traditional in-person counseling. The one big difference is that instead of meeting with your counselor in the office, you meet with your counselor via virtual means. Regardless of which you choose, you can expect to make meaningful changes with the help of your counselor. They will tailor your sessions to you and your needs.
For example, if you are experiencing problems with your partner, a counselor can help you two work through these problems in couples counseling. Or, if you’re showing symptoms of depression, anxiety, or another mental illness, they can help you manage your symptoms.
There are many types of therapy that can be offered online. At Thriveworks, we offer…
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Couples counseling
- Marriage counseling
- Depression and anxiety therapy
- Grief counseling
- Trauma therapy and PTSD counseling
- Family therapy
- And more
These approaches to therapy are designed to help the individual manage a specific problem, work on a specific area of life, or utilize specific science-backed techniques to live better.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
As we just explained, in both in-person and online therapy, your counselor will create a plan for treatment based on your unique needs. Still, one major difference remains between the two: in the latter, you work with your counselor virtually.
If you decide to pursue online counseling at Thriveworks, you can choose to have your sessions over the phone or video chat. Both are effective options, but some people prefer one over the other.
For example, if you are feeling nervous about counseling, telephone sessions might appeal to you because they feel a little more comfortable. On the other hand, if you value that face-to-face communication, video sessions might appeal to you because it’s more similar to in-person counseling.
We have seen many clients enjoy and thrive in both video counseling and telephone counseling. Both of these online therapy options are convenient and comfortable. Additionally…
- They eliminate the commute to the office
- They allow for greater flexibility
- They can alleviate one’s nerves
