Unfortunately, we don’t always give our mental health the attention it deserves. Now, the good news, is that we’re learning about the importance of mental health and wellbeing, as well as how we can improve and maintain our mental health and wellbeing—sometimes, this involves working with a counselor.
“I wish that people could understand that the brain is the most important organ in your body. Just because you can’t see it like you could see a broken bone doesn’t mean it’s not as detrimental and devastating to a family or an individual.” –Demi Lovato
If you think that you could find value in working with a counselor, but you aren’t ready to commit to in-person counseling for whatever reason, consider online counseling. Online counseling offers many benefits that in-person counseling doesn’t. It also can offer a solution to many of the problems that people run into in searching for mental health services.
Thriveworks Edison Therapy has online counseling opportunities available. To schedule an appointment and get started in online counseling, simply give our office a call.
Online Counseling Options at Thriveworks Edison Therapy
Here at Thriveworks Edison Therapy, we offer two main types of online or virtual counseling: telephone counseling and video counseling. Both prove to be effective counseling options, but some people have strong preferences for one or the other. Here’s a little bit about each:
- Telephone counseling: This service is pretty self-explanatory. In telephone counseling, you simply work with your counselor over the phone. At Thriveworks Edison Therapy, your counselor will call you at the time of your appointment.
- Video counseling: Video counseling, on the other hand, is done via a secure video chat room. At Thriveworks Edison Therapy, your counselor will send you a link to said chat room, of which you should join at the time of your session!
Now, if you prefer the face-to-face interaction that you get in in-person counseling, video counseling might be the right online counseling option for you. If, on the other hand, this isn’t preferable or important to you, telephone counseling might be the right counseling option instead! Either way, the counselors at Thriveworks Edison Therapy are happy to accommodate you in whichever form of online counseling you’d like to explore.
What Are the Benefits of Online Counseling?
Online counseling brings many benefits to the table. It allows individuals to attend their counseling appointments without even leaving their homes! It also allows people to attend counseling from the office, from the local coffee shop, or from wherever else they need to. We recommend finding a quiet space to talk with your counselor, but most of all, you should attend your session from wherever works for you.
In addition to this convenience factor, online counseling offers comfort: both physically and mentally. You’re welcome to attend your session from wherever you feel comfortable, be it your living room, dining room, or somewhere else. Now, many clients also feel more comfortable in online counseling from a mental standpoint when it comes to opening up about their problems. This can lead to even greater success in counseling.
The benefits don’t stop there. Online counseling also comes with greater flexibility, reliability, and more. To begin experiencing these benefits, simply give online counseling a try. Thriveworks Edison Therapy is here to get to work when you are.
