How Does Online Counseling Work?

A lot of people worry that online counseling will be hard to navigate or set up. However, it’s actually a very simple service! All you need is access to a phone, computer, or another device that allows you to connect to the internet. In telephone counseling, you’ll join your counselor over the phone for your appointment. All you have to do is answer their call at the start of the session! And in video counseling, you’ll join your counselor in a video chat. Just click the link that they send you, at the time of your appointment.

Both phone counseling and video counseling prove effective. If you value or desire that face-to-face interaction you get in traditional in-person counseling, video counseling might be a good option for you. If, however, you don’t care for the face-to-face interaction, telephone counseling can get the job done too. Sometimes, it takes a little experimentation to figure out what works best. Thriveworks Charlottesville is happy to accompany you on this journey!

What Benefits Will I Find in Online Counseling?

As we just touched on above, online therapy is an effective counseling option and proves beneficial to a lot of people. Again, research shows that online counseling works. And some people find that working with their counselor via virtual medium is easier, which allows them to open up more quickly and make fast progress. Now, there are several online counseling benefits that continue to bring people into online counseling. These include:

  1. Just how convenient it is: The frontrunner is convenience. People just can’t get enough of how convenient online counseling makes therapy. Instead of having to leave the house and drive to your appointment, you can hop into your session from home, in both telephone counseling and video counseling.
  2. The level of comfort: Online counseling also offers a level of comfort that many don’t find in in-person counseling. You truly can attend from the comfort of your bed, your couch, anywhere you please.
  3. Its affordability: Additionally, these days, online counseling is affordable! Insurance companies now pay for video counseling and often telephone counseling, too. Also, Thriveworks Charlottesville, VA offers affordable self-pay options to ensure that everyone has access to the online counseling sessions they’re looking for.

If these benefits entice you and you want to experience them for yourself, all you have to do is reach out to Thriveworks Charlottesville. We’re here and ready to help.
