Thriveworks identified an important need for more dynamic, flexible counseling opportunities. We have found that many people can’t fit yet another drive to yet another appointment in their already-packed schedule. Now, this doesn’t mean that these people don’t see a need for counseling. In fact, they acknowledge the benefits of counseling and express a desire to meet with a counselor—only, they want to do so in a more convenient and comfortable format.
Thus, online counseling was born! Online counseling started out as mental health hotlines and forums. Today, it includes one-on-one counseling with a real, licensed counselor or therapist. Thriveworks Delaware Counseling is proud to offer online counseling, via telephone and video. This involves working with a counselor at a schedule day and time, just like in-person counseling. The only major difference is the virtual format in which you are attending your counseling session.
If you are interested in online counseling, the flexible and convenient approach to counseling, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Delaware Counseling. We’ll be happy to get you scheduled with one of our online counselors, of whom can help you address a myriad of mental health challenges and other life issues. Just call our office or book your session using our online booking system!
How Does Online Counseling at Thriveworks Delaware Work?
Online counseling at Thriveworks Delaware is not high-tech. It uses basic technology, of which you likely already use on a daily basis, to connect clients with their counselor. As we mentioned earlier, there are two main online counseling options offered at Thriveworks Delaware: telephone counseling and video counseling. Both are effective options, but some people prefer one over the other. Here are a few differences between the two to consider:
- Video counseling offers a face-to-face feel
- Telephone counseling might offer greater flexibility, as it provides greater mobility
- Video counseling might feel most similar to in-person counseling
- Telephone counseling offers greater anonymity
Your online counseling preferences will depend on what exactly you’re looking to get out of counseling. Either way, Thriveworks Delaware Counseling is happy to accommodate your needs and help you in either telephone counseling or video counseling. Again, the choice is yours, and we will be there to help you no matter what.
