What Is Online Counseling?
In considering online counseling, two main questions might come to mind: How does it work? And is it effective? First, online therapy can be conducted via phone call or video chat. In phone counseling, your counselor will simply call you at the time of your scheduled session. In video counseling, your counselor will send you a link to the video chat room, which you will visit at the time of your appointment. It’s that simple.
Now, to the second question: Is it effective? Research shows that online counseling proves effective, for many people. In fact, for some, it proves even more effective than in-person counseling, such as those who feel uncomfortable talking face to face. Online counseling can prove less stressful because you’re in an environment that you feel safer, more comfortable in. This then allows you to open up and progress more quickly with your therapist.
Is Online Counseling Right for Me?
As we touched on earlier, online counseling can prove especially valuable to certain individuals, such as those below:
- Tom lives in a rural area, at least 20 minutes to the nearest counseling office. He was willing to give it a try anyway, but they don’t have a counselor who specializes in trauma.
- Katie’s schedule is packed thanks to her new job. She doesn’t have time to see a counselor during the day and by the time she’s off work, the local counseling offices are closed.
- Alice is looking for a female counselor who specializes in LGBTQIA+ issues. The only counseling office in town doesn’t have a counselor who matches these preferences, and she doesn’t want to drive an hour each way to work with someone who does.
All three of these individuals can benefit greatly from online counseling. With phone counseling or video counseling, you don’t have to drive long distances or take time off of work. You can reach a professional counselor with the specialties you’re looking for from the comfort and security of home.
