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 Manchester, 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.

Need more help deciding?

Many of us don’t like to broadcast our personal challenges to the world; others don’t even like to talk to their closest friends or family members about what they’re going through. Fortunately, there is always an unbiased, supportive individual who is there to listen to your problems or concerns and provide you with the guidance you might need to work through it.

Mental health professionals, like counselors, therapists, life coaches, and psychologists, are dedicated to helping people just like you. Better yet, they are skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced in the world of mental health and psychology, which enables them to offer help that can’t be matched. At Thriveworks, our providers are happy to provide their clients with this help in-person or in an online environment.

The latter is proving to become a more popular option, as people thrive in this convenient, flexible, and comfortable approach. If you’re interested in how online counseling might help you, consider scheduling an appointment with one of the counselors or coaches at Thriveworks Counseling in Manchester, CT. 

What Is Online Counseling Like? Can It Help Me?

Online counseling isn’t much different from in-person counseling. The one major difference is that in online counseling, you talk to your counselor via an online medium. Here at Thriveworks Counseling, we have two online counseling options for our clients: telephone counseling and video counseling. Both prove to be effective, but some prefer one over the other. For example, some people prefer that they can see their counselor and talk to them “face-to-face”, which is supported by video counseling but not telephone counseling.

Regardless of whether you choose telephone or video counseling, we’re confident that you’ll enjoy the online counseling approach, of which the majority of our clients are utilizing. Here are a few areas in which our clients are finding help:

  • Stress
  • Work problems
  • Lack of fulfillment
  • Relationship problems
  • Mental illness
  • Familial conflicts
  • General discontent
  • Traumatic experiences
  • Grief and loss

All of the above can prove incredibly difficult to address and manage. However, with the help of a skilled, caring counselor or coach, you can do so successfully. In fact, if you choose to work with a Thriveworks provider, they will set out to help you thrive. And they will do so through depression therapy, anxiety therapy, marriage counseling, couples therapy, family therapy, child therapy, trauma counseling, grief counseling, or another modality that proves to be a good fit for you.

Why Should I Choose Thriveworks?

Thriveworks isn’t just another counseling practice. We are a client-centered practice, which means we put our clients first. We are always aiming to improve the client experience; from the moment they schedule an appointment or reach out about our services to the work that they accomplish with their counselor in every session. Our premium benefits allow us to offer a heightened experience, which include:

  1. Extended appointment times: We offer both early and late sessions, throughout the week and on the weekends.
  2. First appointment within 24-48 hours: We also work hard to get first-time clients in for their first appointment either the same or next day.
  3. Text support via our Success Navigator: To better ensure that our clients are having a positive experience, we will follow up via the Success Navigator to ask about how you are enjoying your time with your counselor.
  4. Most major insurance plans accepted: We know that payment is an important factor, which is why our counselors are credentialed with most major insurance companies. In addition, we have affordable self-pay options if you choose to pay out-of-pocket.

Thriveworks Counseling is happy to offer these benefits and more. Our main goal is to help people live happy, successful lives, and we will continue to fulfill that mission by connecting our clients with skilled, caring mental health professionals.
