Starting Online therapy

What is online therapy?

With Thriveworks, Online therapy is an effective alternative to in-person therapy services in which a client can speak to a Thriveworks therapist remotely via online video conferencing. Online sessions are just as effective as in-person treatment, but they can also provide added benefits like reduced travel time, saving money on transportation or childcare, and increased access to care.

How does online therapy work?

Online therapy works much like traditional in-person therapy but takes place through secure video conferencing. Clients can attend Online therapy from any safe place they choose that has access to the internet, whether that be their home or another easily accessible place. Like in-person treatment, a therapist will work with their client to address their concerns, create goals, and establish an effective treatment plan.

What is the best option for online therapy?

There is no best option for online therapy—instead, it’s best to focus on finding a provider that meets your specific needs and with whom you can form a professional connection with.

Is online therapy just as effective?

Yes, online therapy is just as effetive for many clients as in-person sessions.

How long does online therapy last?

Online therapy can last for a few months to years depending on the goals and symptoms of the client. The treatment process will be unique to each client and lend itself to their specific concerns, which means that the time it takes to treat them will always be different. Timing is also up to the client themselves; they are free to stop therapy whenever they please, especially if they feel they have reached their goals and addressed their concerns.

How much does online therapy cost?

Our Thriveworks therapists at Thriveworks in Fairfield, CT accept most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

If this sounds like you, online counseling might be the right therapy option for you.

What Is Online Therapy? How Is It Different from In-Person Therapy?

Online therapy is much like in-person therapy, only it’s conducted via phone call, video chat, or email. Sounds pretty simple, right? If you decide to explore online therapy at Thriveworks Counseling Fairfield, CT, you don’t have to worry about whether or not your therapist has the proper credentials, skills, or license to help you in therapy. Our counselors and therapists are fully licensed, accredited, and equipped with impressive skillsets.

Let’s delve into the specifics of online counseling. When you call to set up your online therapy counseling appointment, you’ll have a few options:

  1. Online therapy via phone call: If you so choose, you can attend your therapy session(s) over the phone! Just make sure you have access to your phone and service. As long as those two boxes are checked, you can attend your session from anywhere you want!
  2. Online therapy via video chat: This is similar to online therapy via phone call, only you attend your session over video chat. In this case, you just have to make sure that you have access to Wi-Fi and/or service and the video chatroom.
  3. Online therapy via email: This third option varies from the above options, in that you don’t attend your session on a specific day and at a specific time. Instead, you’ll take turns responding over a longer period of time just like you do with emails or texts to other people. This form of online therapy is more casual.

Many people choose online therapy over in-person therapy and for different reasons, but the primary reasons are: it’s convenient, it’s comfortable, and it’s flexible. If you’re looking for the most convenient, comfortable, and flexible therapy option, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling to begin online therapy counseling.

Online Therapy Benefits: Why Choose Online Therapy?

We just mentioned the primary reasons that people choose to forego in-person therapy and attend online therapy instead. Here, we explain these online therapy benefits further:

  • It’s comfortable and convenient: Because online therapy is done online, it offers comfort and convenience that most other health care services cannot. As a reminder, you can attend your session from virtually anywhere, so long as you have access to service or the internet.
  • It’s a quick and flexible scheduling process: Because online therapy is so convenient, for both the client and their therapist, online therapy is a quick and flexible therapy option, too!
