How Does Online Therapy Work?

As we just touched on, online counseling is a way to work with your therapist without leaving home. This increases accessibility to counseling, especially for those who can’t or don’t want to leave their home for a counseling appointment. If you decide to pursue the benefits of online counseling at Thriveworks Decatur, GA, your counselor will create a unique treatment plan for you, just as they do in in-person counseling.

Online counseling at Thriveworks Decatur is conducted in two different ways: in telephone counseling and video counseling. If you choose to work with a counselor in telephone counseling, they will simply call your phone number at the time of your scheduled session. If you instead choose to work with your therapist in video counseling, they will provide you with a link to your video chat room, of which you should navigate to at the time of your appointment.

All you need to attend online counseling is internet connection or phone service and a safe, comfortable space to work with your counselor. Otherwise, online counseling is very similar to onsite counseling. In either case, your provider will offer their nonjudgmental, unbiased help and support.

Should I Try Online Counseling? What Are the Benefits?

If online counseling is news to you, you’re probably wondering why people choose online counseling over in-person counseling and what the benefits are. For starters, online counseling means you can attend your therapy sessions from the comfort and convenience of home. It also offers flexibility—so, if you need to jump into your session from work or in your car, you can. Let’s break down these and other benefits of online counseling:

  1. Comfort and convenience: As we just mentioned, online counseling means you can attend your sessions from the comfort and convenience of home or wherever else you feel safe. You can talk to your counselor on the phone from bed or jump into your video chat on the couch—it’s whatever works best for you.
  2. Accessibility: Additionally, online counseling grants clients greater accessibility to counselors with a wide range of specialties. When it comes to in-person counseling, some clients struggle to find a counselor who suits their needs. But in online counseling, you have access to many more counselors all across the state. This means a much greater likelihood of finding one that fits all of your needs and preferences.
  3. Flexibility: Also, online counseling offers flexibility in more than one way. First, it lets you attend your session from work, your car, or wherever else you might need to. Additionally, it offers greater flexibility in scheduling. You will likely be able to schedule your first online session the same or the following day.

If these benefits entice you and you want to experience them for yourself, just reach out to Thriveworks Decatur. We’re here and ready to get started.

Found a Therapy Home!

I came across Thrive Works, and specifically Alex Prince, several months ago as I, like so many, have felt ove...Read more

rwhelmed, anxious, and sometimes even hopeless during this pandemic. I found myself needing to take the leap and seek professional help and Alex has served as an amazing source of information and hope! His wealth of knowledge and years of experience have provided, even in a relatively short period of time, so many great tools and such insight. He is receptive and sensitive to your needs. While being a complete professional he also has the ability to connect with people in a personal and very genuine way. And perhaps his greatest skill is his ability to disarm and empower his clients with such great humor! A session doesn’t go by-regardless of how rough a time I may be having- where we don’t find something to laugh about. It’s such a great reminder that humor is such a real and powerful medicine! It’s truly been a blessing to find a counselor I feel so comfortable with and feel like step by step, week by week, I am making real progress. Thank you, Alex.
