Is Online Counseling Right For You?
When you think of counseling, what comes to mind? Many people envision a traditional counseling set up: An allotted time frame, a inviting office space, and a face to face meeting with a professional counselor. While many people have benefitted from this form of counseling, online counseling can be a wonderful alternative to in-person counseling in certain contexts. Keep reading to find out if this telehealth option is right for you!
Online Counseling is Convenient
In today’s busy world, scheduling time to invest into personal growth can be challenging. With online
counseling, you can shave off time from a commute to the counseling office and meet with a counselor via a telehealth set up in your house, office, or wherever you have a good internet connection! If you have children, telehealth can save you the need to find a babysitter as you receive support from the comfort of your own home.
Online Counseling is Comfortable
Where do you feel the most comfortable? Many people feel most at ease in their bedrooms, living rooms, or cars. Telehealth offers you the luxury of engaging in conversation with someone you can trust while remaining in a physical space of comfort – wherever you have solid internet service.
Online Counseling is Effective
Several studies have shown that online counseling can be just as effective as in-person counseling. In fact, a 2018 study published in the Journal of Psychological Disorders found that online cognitive behavioral therapy was equally as effective as in-person therapy for panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, major depression, and generalized anxiety disorder.
