What is Online Counseling?
Online counseling offers a private, secure treatment option with a certified counselor. Online counseling is a comfortable and convenient option that affords you the opportunity to speak with our counselors in a familiar and private setting.
What technology is used during counseling sessions?
Skype – Through the use of Skype video, a face to face interaction is much like an office visit.
Telephone – This interaction is for individuals who either don’t have video or are more comfortable just talking.
Live chat – Text messaging is available.
At Counseling on Demand, we feel that the quality of the therapist/client interaction is of the utmost value, whichever medium is utilized; thus, good therapy can be equally or even more effective than traditional office sessions.
Who Benefits from On-Line Therapy?
Online counseling isn’t for everyone, but has proven to be an effective treatment option for many people. Individuals seeking treatment who find themselves in extreme circumstances could be better suited to an office setting.
- It’s not uncommon for a person seeking treatment to feel anxiety about traditional in person therapy options. On-line counseling provides an alternative for those who feel embarrassed or uncomfortable making an office appointment with a therapist.
- Those who live in remote areas often find it difficult to travel to a therapist’s office on a regular basis. On-line counseling eliminates those barriers.
- Individuals with tight schedules, physical challenges or conflicting relationships can benefit from the flexibility of online counseling.
