What Is Online Therapy? How Can It Help Me?

As we touched on earlier, more people are turning to online therapy instead of the traditional in-person counseling. Online therapy, otherwise known as e-therapy, internet counseling, and cyber counseling, allows you to meet with your counselor, therapist, or psychologist via virtual means. This allows those who can’t find a qualified therapist in their area to receive the mental health care they’re looking for. It also offers a solution to those looking for a convenient therapy options that fits more readily into their already busy schedule.

If you decide to pursue online therapy, you’ll have a few options to choose from. You can work with your counselor over the phone, video chat, or email/text message:

  1. Phone calls: Your first option is to work with your therapist over the phone! This is a simple setup, you just need to make sure you have service or internet to answer your therapist’s call at the agreed upon day and time.
  2. Video chat: Another option is to work with your counselor via video chat or videoconference. Again, this is a simple approach, you simply need to ensure that you have Wi-Fi or internet connection at the time you and your therapist agree to meet!
  3. Email/text message: Emailing or texting your therapist is the final and most casual online therapy options. Instead of communicating in real-time for a set 60 or 90 minutes, you’ll send messages back and forth with your counselor over a longer period of time.

Which option best suits you? If you prefer face-to-face interaction, video chat might be the best option for you. If, on the other hand, you prefer anonymity, phone counseling or email/text message might be the right online therapy option for you! Either way, a Thriveworks Framingham, MA therapist is happy to help.
