What Is Online Therapy with Thriveworks Roanoke, VA?
Online counseling is a way for you to meet with a professional counselor without leaving your home. Also known as cyber counseling, teletherapy, e-counseling, or e-therapy, online counseling can be great for people whose situation prevents them from meeting in-person with a counselor on a regular basis.
There are many methods that people use to individualize the online counseling experience. Thriveworks Roanoke offers a solution for everyone. Some people choose to meet through videoconferencing, online chat, email, text message, or over the phone. Like in-person counseling, you can set a time to talk with a Roanoke, VA counselor in real-time, or you can have a time-delayed conversation that occurs over a larger period of time and is very flexible.
With the increase in technology online counseling has skyrocketed. It started in 1982 as an online self-help group, but since then has branched to provide counseling for nearly every mental health concern there is. Thriveworks Roanoke is proud to offer this innovative and inclusive therapy format.
Can Online Therapy Help Me? Is Online Counseling Effective?
There can be a lot of doubt surrounding online counseling. How is Thriveworks Roanoke keeping the conversations confidential? Is it less effective than in-person counseling? Is it offered for all forms of therapy or only for certain mental health concerns?
Research done on the effectiveness of online therapy has shown it is just as effective, and in some cases may be even more effective than in-person counseling.
