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?

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 Does Online Counseling Work?

There isn’t a huge difference between online counseling and in-person counseling in terms of quality of care and progress to be made. The main, and maybe only difference between the two options is online counseling is, well, online. When you start your sessions with your therapist, they will perform an assessment to gauge what your needs, concerns, and goals are. With the information they gather, they will create a customized plan of action tailored to your specifics. They will also use a variety of different methods, techniques, and tools to help you make progress and manage your symptoms.

You’ll be able to choose between telephone counseling and video chat counseling. If you aren’t sure of which option to choose, we recommend trying out both options to see what fits your needs best.
