When you think about scheduling an appointment or attending an appointment, do you think comfort and convenience? Probably not. Many people feel like going to the doctor’s office or another office for a given appointment is inconvenient and certainly not the most comfortable. Fortunately, there are now virtual options that enable individuals to speak with a medical professional about concerns and treatment online.
This is true for online counseling, too. In fact, telehealth sessions for counseling are growing increasingly popular. While some are hesitant about making the switch from in-person to online counseling services, many find that these virtual sessions allow for both progress and flexibility.
If you’ve ever considered talking to a counselor but you were deterred by the inconvenience, the lack of comfort, or another obstacle, consider trying online therapy. Thriveworks Counseling in Chattanooga, TN can set you up with an online counselor who would be happy to work with you over the phone or video chat. Call us today to set up your telephone or video session with a skilled, caring mental health provider.
Online Therapy Options at Thriveworks
We have two main virtual counseling options here at Thriveworks: telephone and video counseling. Both of these options allow you to work one-on-one with a counselor in a safe, secure space.
Telephone counseling is perhaps the most flexible of the two online counseling options. It also offers greater anonymity, which makes it a great option for people who are feeling nervous about meeting with their therapist or those who would like to keep a low profile. Video counseling, on the other hand, is also a valuable option. This option offers the closest feel to an in-person counseling session without actually going into the office for your session, which is preferred by many.
Do either of these options stick out to you as the most viable or preferred option? If not, don’t worry. We welcome our clients to try out both telephone and video counseling sessions. Then, they can choose to move forward with either telephone or video counseling.
What Can Online Therapy Help With?
Online therapy can help people with a wide variety of mental health issues. Mental health issues include any challenge that negatively affects one’s mental health and wellbeing. Some of the most common mental health issues are…
- Conflicts with loved ones
- Relationship issues
- Signs and symptoms of mental illness
- Lack of fulfillment, happiness
- Addiction and substance abuse
- Difficult emotions
- Grief and loss
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, both in-person and online counseling can prove beneficial. However, if you’re looking for a more convenient or comfortable option, consider giving online counseling a try.
We can help individuals, couples, and families in online therapy. This often enables couples and families to attend counseling with greater ease, as it offers greater flexibility with scheduling and attending an appointment.
