There are many reasons people don’t receive the mental health resources they need. Maybe you think you don’t have the time, there isn’t a counselor nearby, or you’re nervous about talking to a therapist or counselor. Thankfully, there’s an option that can solve these kinds of problems: online counseling.
Online therapy or counseling is very similar to in-person therapy; the biggest difference is that your sessions will take place over phone calls or video chats rather than in an office environment. You’ll work with a licensed mental health professional to help you deal with your mental health issues and learn new ways to manage your symptoms.
Experiencing mental distress can be scary. No matter what you’re going through, know that support is available. Online therapy could be the step that puts you on the path to a sense of mental ease. Call us today to set up an appointment with a mental health professional from Thriveworks Counseling in Midland, TX.
Online Therapy –– What Are My Options?
Most therapy is talk-based so it translates well to an online environment. You can receive many types of therapeutic treatment online, including:
- Depression therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Child and adolescent therapy
- Anxiety therapy
- Anger management
- Phobia counseling and exposure therapy
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) counseling
- Family therapy
- Couples counseling
- Marriage counseling
- Eating disorder therapy
Online therapy or counseling is very similar to traditional therapy. You’ll connect with your provider on a video session or phone call and they’ll get to know you and your goals before developing an individualized treatment plan. Your licensed counselor or therapist will work with you over the course of future sessions to help you find ways to manage your mental health issue.
Online therapy is a great option for anyone who wants to start speaking with a mental health professional. Consider reaching out to a counselor or therapist from Thriveworks Counseling in Midland, TX today.
Why Choose Online Therapy or Counseling?
Online therapy or counseling appointments are great because they remove a lot of the barriers involved with traditional, face-to-face therapeutic options. They’re very accessible and easy to schedule.
Here are some situations where people can benefit from online therapy options:
- Thomas has felt more anxious lately. Some level of anxiety is normal in response to stressful situations, so he’s not sure if he’s living with an anxiety disorder. Online therapy lets Thomas speak to a provider without having to commit to an in-person session.
- Julia wants to talk to a professional about her depression for the first time but she’s nervous. She’s worried that she won’t be able to open up to a counselor if they meet in person. Working with a provider over the phone helps her open up during her sessions and discuss her issues more readily.
- Derek and Brielle want to work with a relationship counselor to learn new communication skills but they both have demanding jobs. Online counseling is a good option that can accommodate their busy schedules.
If you decide to schedule an online therapy or counseling session, you’ll have the option of speaking with your provider over the phone or through a video call. If you choose to work with a provider over the phone, you’ll receive a call at your appointment time. If you want to speak with your provider over a video chat, you’ll receive a link prior to your session. To join, simply click the link once it’s time for your session to start. It’s that simple.
