With the way the world is evolving, there is not much you can’t do online. You can shop for clothes and home items online, buy groceries online, tour homes online, even get married online.

Change the negative, self-loathing thoughts to positive, self-affirming ones. When you’re positive about yourself and everything around you, you begin to see the world in a different light. Your life today is what you make of it. – Demi Lovato

Online therapy can help you work through any mental roadblock you may have and help you achieve greater happiness. If you are going through something and think that you could benefit from working with a psychologist, reach out to Thriveworks Pueblo today. Just call our office to get started.
What Is Online Counseling?
Despite what you may think, online therapy has been around since the 1980s when the first online self-help group was rolled out. Today, there are so many options and benefits to teletherapy that make it, essentially, the same thing as in-person counseling. The two ways you can receive online therapy are:
- Phone Counseling: This option allows you to speak with your therapist over the phone at your designated appointment time. All you have to do is answer when they call.
- Video Chat Counseling: Video chat counseling is a virtual face-to-face option. Prior to your appointment time, you will receive a link to the video chat room and all you have to do is click it when it is time for your appointment. The only thing you need is an electronic device with a camera, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, and an internet connection.
If you are wondering which option might be best for you, no worries. You can flip-flop between both methods in order to find which one works best for you and feels most comfortable. Some of the major benefits of online counseling are ease, comfortability, reliability, effectiveness, and affordability. Some of our clients say that they feel more comfortable receiving therapy virtually because it takes away the in-person pressure they may feel from traditional counseling. However, that is not to say that someone may have less progress through teletherapy than they would in-person. Research shows that online therapy is just as effective as in-person counseling. Whatever option you choose, know that the psychologists at Thriveworks Pueblo Counseling are dedicated to providing you with the most comprehensive plan of care.
