What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is easing the client into the session and going over the intake process. I encourage clients to ask questions and let them know the expectations for online therapy. I also find the benefit in clients asking questions about myself and my experience with online clients.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

I teach the following tools in online therapy:

  • Psychoeducation worksheets: information about diagnosis and process, etc
  • Homework: exercises to help clients with the process
  • Live exercises: clients complete an exercise/worksheet to practice

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when they share a situation that occurred and they were able to implement their new coping skills.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement online therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in online therapy with the worksheets or notes taken when in session.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

To prepare for your first online therapy session, you can be open to suggestions from your clinician, stay focused, and be open about how you feel about the process.

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.
