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 speicifc needs and with wom 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 Norwalk, 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?

We must work constantly toward living a happy, healthy life. It gets easier as we learn how to manage our stress, how to regulate our emotions, how to communicate with our loved ones, and otherwise tend to our mental health and wellbeing. Sometimes, though, we can benefit from a little outside help.

In-Person Vs. Online Counseling: What’s the Difference?

Online counseling, also known as online therapy or virtual counseling, offers many benefits that in-person counseling doesn’t. For example, because online counseling allows people to meet with their counselor without even leaving their house, it offers utmost convenience. On that note, you can attend counseling from your office, from the coffee shop down the street, or wherever else you need to, if you decide to work with your counselor online. Now, we recommend attending your telephone counseling or video counseling session from a quiet space, but most importantly, we want you to attend from wherever you feel comfortable.

Also, online counseling often makes people feel more comfortable. In addition to the physical comfort they experience, being in their own homes, many online counseling clients feel more comfortable opening up to their counselors from a distance. This allows them to make even more progress than they might in in-person counseling.

The online counseling perks don’t stop there. There’s also greater flexibility as well as reliability in online counseling when compared with in-person counseling. If you’re intrigued by these benefits, consider getting started in online counseling as soon as today.

Telephone Counseling and Video Counseling: Which Is Right for Me?

Online counseling has come a long way since its inception! Today, clients can enjoy online counseling over the phone, over video, and even sometimes via email. Here at Thriveworks in Norwalk, CT, we offer two main online counseling options: telephone counseling and video counseling. Some people find that both are helpful, while others have strong preferences. Consider:

  • In telephone counseling, you’ll simply answer your counselor’s call.
  • In video counseling, you’ll join your counselor in a secure video chat room.
  • In telephone counseling, you do not get that face-to-face interaction.
  • In video counseling, you do get that face-to-face interaction, despite not actually meeting with your counselor in person.
  • Both can be done from home or wherever the individual chooses so long as they have service or internet access as well as the necessary device.

Now, hopefully the above helps you decide which online counseling option might be the right option for you. If you decide that you don’t have a preference, that works too. Either way, Thriveworks in Norwalk is here to set you up with a skilled, caring counselor who is ready to work with you via virtual means.

Schedule Virtual Counseling at Thriveworks in Norwalk

As we just detailed, online counseling or virtual counseling is the solution that many people are looking for. Many people just can’t or don’t want to commit to regular in-office counseling sessions. Online counseling allows you to obtain the mental health services you’re looking for without making that commitment. Instead, you will commit to meeting with your counselor online, via telephone or video. This offers optimal convenience and comfort, of which can empower you to make meaningful progress with your counselor or therapist.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
