Do you wish you could save time commuting to appointments? Does your busy life make it difficult to see a therapist during typical office hours?
Online therapy allows you to talk with a therapist from the comfort of your own home, office, or other remote location.
Online therapy may be the right choice if you:
- Find it difficult to travel to the therapist’s office due to any constraint
- Live too far away for in-person visits with a therapist
- Do not have the time to commute to a therapist’s office
- Feel more comfortable getting help from the privacy of your own home
- Need to arrange therapy at a time when in-person appointments are not practical
- Have young children who need you at home
Open up in a more familiar and natural environment
Therapists do whatever possible to make their clients feel comfortable. However, many people find it difficult to open up in an office environment. Sitting somewhere where you feel relaxed can make therapy sessions more enjoyable and effective.
While some people have difficulty expressing themselves in a therapist’s office, others face the opposite problem. Therapy works great. After a few sessions, they feel they have made genuine progress coping with their issue. However, when they try to implement the techniques they learned in therapy, it does not work. The therapist’s office can create an artificial safe space, where you become a different person. This may feel empowering for your hour session, but you need to live your life in the real world. Online therapy enables you to get treatment in an atmosphere where you can be real and true to yourself.
Is online therapy the right choice for me?
If you have tried in-person therapy before, but felt inhibited or unable to progress, give online therapy a try.
Online therapy is not appropriate for all psychological concerns, and it should not be relied upon for crisis intervention.
