Online counseling is growing. It’s becoming more popular, as people recognize and utilize its many benefits from convenience to comfort, security, and affordability. It enables people to meet with a counselor, even when they have tight schedules, a lack of availability, and/or disabilities that prevent them from coming in for a traditional in-person therapy session. In addition, it empowers people who would normally have trouble opening up to a therapist; these individuals find that opening up and having serious conversations in online counseling is much easier not to mention beneficial.
All in all, online counseling is a valuable service. With the traditional in-person counseling approach, sometimes unpredictable factors can get in the way of one’s attending their session: for example, bad weather, standstill traffic, a bad cough or fever. With online counseling, you don’t have to stress about how long it’ll take you to get to your session or what you’ll do if you develop a little sickness but still want to meet with your therapist. Why? Because you can attend your session right from home.

To better understand all of the benefits that come with online therapy, and in your deciding whether online counseling is the right option for you, consider:
- Jen is searching for a female therapist who specializes in relationships. Her hope is that she’ll start individual sessions and then convince her boyfriend to come in for a few as well. She’s looked in their area for the right counselor, but hasn’t found one that meets all of her needs. Fortunately, when she expands her search to include online counselors, she finds a counselor a few cities over who checks all of the boxes. She schedules her first video counseling session right away.
- Alex feels like he knows everything he could possibly know about counseling. He’s familiarized himself enough to where he now feels comfortable enough to schedule a session—plus, it doesn’t hurt that he knows he can maintain the anonymity he was hoping for. Online counseling means he doesn’t have to worry about people he knows seeing him at the local counseling office. He gets to keep this personal decision to himself until he decides to share it with his loved ones! He can’t wait to get started and feels hopeful for the first time in a long time.
Can you relate to Jen or Alex? Are you looking for a counselor with specific specialties or qualities? Are you hoping to keep your decision to attend counseling private? Online counseling can meet those needs. Continue working with an online counselor at Thriveworks in North Austin, TX.
