So much of our lives are completely out of our hands, and when life throws us a curveball, it can sometimes knock us off course for a while. Thriveworks Conway, AR is working to remove as many of these roadblocks that are preventing you from getting back on the right track. And online counseling is helping us do it!
Online counseling, also known as telehealth, offers personalized mental health services with a licensed counselor, virtually. Counseling for depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, life transitions—if you can talk about it face-to-face, you can talk about it virtually with one of Thriveworks Conway’s skilled, caring providers via online counseling. That said, we do offer in-person counseling for those who prefer it.
What Is Online Counseling?
Online counseling with Thriveworks Conway, AR is a way to meet with professional, licensed counselors without leaving your home, adding an extra benefit compared to in-person therapy.
With Thriveworks Conway, you can schedule a time to meet with your counselor virtually just like you would face-to-face, only you will likely have greater flexibility in scheduling! Thriveworks Conway, AR takes all the necessary precautions to keep your information safe, just as we do in face-to-face counseling.
Our focus is always on providing you with the best mental health care possible, and that means keeping the focus on you.
Why Choose Online Counseling Over In-Person Therapy at Thriveworks Conway?
Online counseling is effective and preferred by many for several reasons. These include:
- Utmost convenience: Hectic schedules don’t change because you want to go to therapy. However, counseling online can help you save time as well as the drive to a counseling office.
- You can take counseling with you wherever you go: When you go on a trip or move to a new location, you have to pause or even cancel the counseling relationship you’ve formed with your counselor. If you really click with them, it can be hard to start new somewhere else. With online therapy you don’t have to skip sessions or start over; the relationship you’ve formed and progress you’ve made can stay with you wherever you go.
- Fighting against the stigma and anxiety: Thriveworks Conway, AR is nonjudgmental and empathetic. Although the stigma against mental health has decreased dramatically, it is still prevalent in many communities today. Online therapy removes that layer of anxiety and lowers the chance of being negatively stereotyped by peers.
- Affordability: Many people are concerned about the cost related to online counseling. Thriveworks Conway, AR can assure you that in most cases, it is often the same rate as face-to-face therapy.
Thriveworks Conway, AR treats our online counseling sessions with the same amount of preparation, seriousness, and dedication as our in-person therapy sessions. The mode in which counseling occurs does not change our values and mission.
Do I Need Online Counseling or In-Person Therapy?
Neither online counseling or in-person therapy is better than the other. It depends on your preference. If the benefits listed above seem appealing or relatable, then perhaps online counseling could be the better option.
At Thriveworks Conway, AR we offer both to our clients—and if you prefer to try both, you’ll be able to do that, with no issue.
