There are many benefits to online therapy – which is why it’s quickly becoming a popular model for support for both young people and older people.
Virtual counseling is helpful if you are suffering with depression, anxiety – or any type of mental health and emotional issues.
I myself offer virtual coaching (more info here) to help people with their relationships, happiness, anxiety, binge eating etc.
My clients have told me that they love doing virtual therapy with me and find it hugely beneficial.
Basically, online therapy gives them the option to talk to someone, in a private way, at a time that is good for them – without having to leave their home. (Note: There are also places like LifeStance virtual therapy which help folks with deeper mental health issues.)
In fact, my clients have told me that they see 3 big benefits to online counseling.
Virtual therapy is easily accessible – which is especially helpful if…
Some people find it intimidating to open up to someone face to face – in person. It can feel as if their feelings are being magnified.
Online therapy overcomes each of those barriers that may stop others from seeking therapy.
Online therapy is convenient for you – because…
Both the therapist and the patient have the convenience of talking with each other at many varying times. Whether that’s on a morning before work or on an evening when you’re winding down.
This style of therapy can take away the hassle of scheduling and setting appointments the traditional way. Plus you don’t have to worry about traffic to and from.
It also allows you to have the power in your hands. If you wish to do this on a weekend but know that you have the kids, you can schedule the call before they even get up. Then you have still have a chance to speak to your therapist. You can even sit down, with your dog on your lap, and have a cup of tea – all at the same time!
Web counseling is known to be a little better for those with financial struggles. It is not as expensive as traditional counseling. Why? Because it is generally better for the therapist or life coach too. They do not need to pay out for office rental and traveling expenses.
So overall, it is lowering overhead costs of capital, property, commuting and administration which means that the price is lowered and the money can be focused purely on the therapy itself.
I know that’s why I price my 1-on-1 virtual counseling with attractive rates.
You must stay on top of your mental health.
And you must give yourself time to heal and time to implement new skills.
Your time is now. Online therapy could be the start of a better future.
Become the happiest version of you. Start now!
