Zoom Counseling: Receive Telehealth for Your Mental Health By Video

Zoom is a service that enables video and audio conferencing. Zoom Counseling refers to video counseling, an online counseling option, which allows you to work with a mental health professional via video! If you’re looking for online counseling, you can work with a provider in a secure video chatroom on the Zoom platform.

Many people are exploring Zoom Counseling and other online counseling services, as it proves to be the most convenient and comfortable counseling option while also maintaining the value you can find in in-person counseling. Some are intimidated by the technical aspect, but Zoom Counseling actually isn’t technical at all! You only need a basic level of technical skills, those of which enable you to connect to the internet and navigate to a virtual chatroom hosted on Zoom. Here at Thriveworks, we make it easy for you. We’ll be sure to walk you through each simple step.

Zoom Counseling is multibeneficial. In addition to convenience and comfort, you can enjoy greater flexibility. If you’re interested in receiving Zoom Counseling, or video counseling, get started today with a Thriveworks provider.

Zoom Counseling: How Does It Work?

Zoom Counseling is one form of online counseling (or e-counseling) that focuses on connecting you with your mental health provider via video. If you are looking for individual, relationship, or group therapy, Zoom Counseling is an option that is readily available to you here at Thriveworks. Now, there are other forms of online counseling, the next most popular being telephone counseling. This is simply working with your mental health provider via phone call and it, too, is effective.

Counseling via Zoom video offers comfort, convenience, and flexibility. It can ease the client’s mind, as they don’t have to worry about rushing to their appointment or commuting to and from. Instead, you can attend wherever you deem suitable, be it from your couch, your dining room table, your desk, or your bed. As long as you can safely and comfortably work with your counselor via video chat from the given space, you are all set! This is a primary perk that attracts people to Zoom Counseling and other forms of online counseling.

Here at Thriveworks, we have a dedicated team of mental health professionals, from counselors to therapists, psychologists, and life coaches, all of whom are happy to provide you with online counseling services. Reach out today to begin!

How Can Zoom Counseling Help Me?

The key difference between in-person counseling and Zoom counseling (as well as other online counseling options) is that your sessions are held online rather than in-person. Otherwise, there are more similarities than differences. The focus is still to help you overcome challenges you might be facing, such as those rooted in mental health problems, stressors, or other major life issues. Here are a few common challenges that bring people into counseling:

  • Symptoms of a mental illness, such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder
  • Relationship issues, like jealousy, infidelity, and disagreements in parenting
  • Personal problems, such as low self-esteem or feelings of loneliness
  • Major life transitions, like a big move or a job change
  • Stressors at work, such as poor time management or bullying

There are many other categories we could tack onto the list, but the truth is that the list would never end. The main takeaway is that counseling can help you tackle any challenge that is negatively impacting your mental health and wellbeing—that is, in-person counseling as well as online counseling.

If you’re interested in working with a mental health professional, consider online counseling services like Zoom Counseling. Zoom Counseling allows you to work with a provider conveniently from home via virtual means, while also giving you that face-to-face interaction you would get in an in-person therapy session.

What Are the Perks of Zoom Counseling?

If you’re considering Zoom Counseling, or online counseling in general, there’s probably a good reason for that. Perhaps you don’t want to commit to a commute to and from the therapy office each week. Or, maybe you’d like to ensure that your decision to begin counseling is a private one. Either way, online counseling is a great solution. Here is a more comprehensive list that details the perks of online counseling opportunities like Zoom Counseling:

  1. It’s a time-saver: As we just mentioned, if you don’t want to commit to a commute to and from your local therapy office, you don’t have to! All thanks to online counseling. This also removes the frustrations of traffic, poor weather, and road work. You don’t have to worry about many of these external factors when you’re working with your counselor from home via Zoom.
  2. It eliminates fears of social stigma: Zoom Counseling also removes the fear of judgment or social stigma. Some of us prefer to keep our decision to work with a counselor private—and that’s okay. With online counseling, you don’t have to worry about other seeing you or finding out that you’re going to counseling. You can easily keep that decision to yourself, if you wish!
  3. It improves accessibility: Zoom Counseling, and other forms of online counseling, also improve one’s access to providers. Instead of being limited to those in your immediate area, you get to work with any counselor or therapist who is licensed in your state! This allows you to find the provider with the skills, experience, training, and specialties you’re looking for.
  4. It’s convenient: As we’ve said many times before, Zoom counseling is the convenient option, too. You don’t have to worry about a commute, which means you also don’t have to rework your current schedule to fit in that commute to and from the office. Truly, you can attend your counseling session from wherever you deem fit, as long as you have access to your device and internet connection.
  5. It can make opening up easier: You might also discover that it’s easier for you to open up with your counselor in Zoom Counseling versus in in-person counseling. In these instances, you can make progress with your counselor more easily and more quickly, which is an added bonus to this effective treatment method!
  6. It offers greater flexibility: And to top it all off, Zoom Counseling also offers greater flexibility in scheduling and rescheduling your appointments (if you need to). The online counselors at Thriveworks work flexible hours, in order to best accommodate you. If you need or prefer to attend counseling in the evenings or on the weekends, you have that option with us.
