Imagine: You just found out that the promotion you thought you were going to get went to someone else. Then your mom calls to tell you that your dad just broke his hip and is going into surgery tomorrow. Yesterday, your life was much different and today, things couldn’t get worse. You have always had a hard time dealing with difficult emotions and want to speak to a therapist, but you don’t have time to drive to an appointment. You wish there was an option that fit your needs. Luckily, there is.
On particularly rough days, when I’m sure I can’t possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that’s pretty good. –Unknown

What Is Online Counseling? How Does It Work?
Despite what you may think, online counseling has been around for many years. It is designed to provide clients with reliable, effective mental health care virtually from anywhere. If you are interested in online therapy, you have a couple options to choose from: phone or video chat. If you choose to meet with your counselor over the phone, they will give you a call at your scheduled appointment time. If you choose the video chat option, you will be sent a link which you’ll click on at the time of your appointment. Easy!
Both options are great but if you are having a hard time choosing one over the other, we recommend trying out both options to see what meets your needs best. The online counselors at Thriveworks Newark Counseling are happy to help you either way and just want you to be as comfortable as possible. We think that you will find online counseling beneficial, regardless of which option you choose. We’ll get into some of the great benefits of online counseling below.
What Are the Perks of Online Counseling?
Online counseling is a great option for most clients but if it doesn’t feel right to you, that’s okay! However, it does prove to be effective for many people and might be worth trying out a few times. Online therapy is particularly beneficial for people who are struggling to find a qualified mental health professional near them, are afraid of working with a therapist in person, need more flexible scheduling options, or would rather work with a therapist from home. If any of these things align with your thoughts, it might be time for you to give it a try!
