…so many people live in shame, hiding their struggles, not seeking help.

We, as a culture, have not fully acknowledged how much help is needed.

The only real shame is on us for not being willing to speak openly. For

continuing to deny that mental health is related to our overall health.

We need to start talking, and we need to start now.”

–Oprah Winfrey

What Is Distance Therapy? How Does Online Counseling Work?

Distance therapy refers to counseling that is conducted online versus in-person. If you decide to go the online counseling route, you’ll get to work with your therapist in one of two ways: over the phone or via video chat. If you choose the former, your counselor will give you a call at the scheduled time—make sure you have service! And if choose the latter of the two options, you’ll be sent a video link; click on this link and join the chat at the scheduled time. You’ll meet with your therapist here.

You might be wondering why people forego in-person counseling and choose to work with their therapist online instead. There are actually a few good reasons why people choose online therapy over in-person counseling. These include:

  1. It’s more convenient for their schedule: Many people don’t have enough time to take off of work for all of their appointments. And the last thing they want to do after work is drive to another office! Fortunately, online counseling allows them to receive the mental health help they need with the utmost convenience. Instead of having to drive to a therapy office, online counseling enables you to attend from the convenience of home.
  2. It might be easier for you to talk about tough subjects: A huge challenge for many people who could benefit from mental health services is reaching out for that help and then opening up in therapy. In many cases, people find that opening up to a therapist or counselor is more easily done in online counseling, when they meet with their provider through virtual means.
  3. It’s an effective option that enables you to make meaningful advancements: Choosing online counseling does not mean sacrificing or slowing down the progress you would make in in-person or face-to-face counseling. If you’re ready to make meaningful advancements with a counselor, reach out to Thriveworks Chesapeake, VA today.

You can begin making progress with your therapist at Thriveworks Chesapeake, as soon as today. To get started, you simply need to schedule your appointment. We’re here to help when you’re ready to get started.

Work with an Online Counselor at Thriveworks Chesapeake, VA

Online counseling is a convenient, comfortable, and effective counseling option. In addition, it offers a factor of reliability. When it comes to in-person counseling, there are many external factors that might get in your way of attending your session. For example, you might be forced to cancel or reschedule your appointment because you’re stuck in traffic, you’ve come down with an illness, or there are bad weather conditions. The same cannot be said for online counseling. With online counseling, you can count on making your appointment on time, as long as you have phone service or internet connection.

If online counseling sounds like the right therapy option for you or an option that’s worth exploring, reach out to Thriveworks Chesapeake. Give our team a call at (757) 414-6427 and we’ll help you schedule a phone counseling session or videoconference with an online counselor.
