What Is Online Therapy?
Online therapy is simple: it’s receiving therapy online! Don’t worry, the online therapists (or internet therapists, as some call them) at Thriveworks Counseling in West Hartford are licensed, skilled providers. The major difference here is that you will attend therapy via phone call, video chat, or email:
- What is phone therapy? If you’re interested in online therapy, one option is to attend your sessions over the phone. You will set a specific day and time to talk to your therapist and then they will call you!
- What is video therapy? This is similar to phone therapy, in that you pick a day and time to work with your therapist, who will then meet you in your video chat at the scheduled time. Some people prefer the video chat method to the phone therapy method because there is still some level of face-to-face interaction.
- What is email therapy? And finally, you can also choose to work with your online therapist vie email or chat. Instead of occurring at an exact scheduled time, email therapy will occur over a longer course of time. Think: Emailing or texting a friend.
Online therapy is a great option for a lot of different people. For example: Those who don’t have a lot of flexibility in their schedule to drive to therapy and then have a 90-minute session. Also, some people simply prefer working with an online therapist versus working with an in-person therapist because they feel more comfortable.
What Benefits Come with Online Therapy?
We mentioned a few online therapy benefits above, including its convenience. Let’s delve into this benefit as well as additional benefits of online therapy sessions:
- Convenience: As we explained above, this is a major benefit of online mental health therapy. For many people, making it to any appointment is inconvenient as well as frustrating, especially when they have a busy school or work schedule. Online therapy is the perfect solution to this problem when it comes to receiving mental health services. You can attend your sessions from virtually anywhere, as long as you have access to the internet or your phone.
- Comfort: Another major benefit of online therapy is the comfort level, both literally and figuratively. Many of our clients attend therapy from the comfort of their homes—even in bed or on the couch! Also, many people feel more comfortable with the therapeutic process when doing so via phone, video, or email, which allows them to better succeed in therapy.
- Flexibility: Lastly, online therapy is flexible in a way that other forms of therapy and overall healthcare isn’t. You can typically schedule an appointment much more quickly as your desired therapist can more easily schedule a last minute session because it is done online.
