Is Online Therapy Right for Me?
Many people think that online therapy (or therapy in general) won’t help them. The reality is that most people will greatly benefit from talking to a therapist online. But in case you’re still on the fence, here are a few examples of when online therapy is your best option.
If it helps with your mental health status and/or mental illness.
If anxiety or depression has you unable to leave your house, online counseling is a much better option than skipping out on your session altogether. If you’re in the middle of a panic attack, driving to get to an appointment should be the last thing on your mind. For anyone who struggles with the idea of going into a therapist’s office, online therapy is a great solution. It’s not taking the easy way out or shorting you on your progress — it’s one of the many reasons why online counseling is more effective than in-person sessions.
If you’re struggling to connect with a therapist in your area.
As we mentioned earlier, Texas is enormous. Our online therapists work with countless people, solely because it’s more convenient than having to drive hours and hours to get to the nearest counselor. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice a meaningful connection with a therapist — not to mention, a connection that helps you grow — simply because there’s no one close to you.
Similarly, some therapists in some areas reflect the values of their location. If you’re worried that the therapy options (if any) in your area are not going to best serve you, online therapy is a great solution.
If you’re busy.
To be honest, who isn’t busy? It can be quite the challenge to fit another appointment onto your schedule, but this becomes so much easier when you can meet with someone in your home. While some people might enjoy getting to go see someone in-person, you can meet with a therapist online wherever there’s service and you feel comfortable. Your office after hours, a private room at a library, the comfort of your living room — the flexibility of online therapy is a definite advantage.
If you need help on location.
Want to keep up with your therapist while you’re on vacation? Worried about losing your cool when spending time with your extended family? Nervous that you’ll have an anxiety attack at the airport? Talking to a therapist online means it’s so much easier to connect and feel supported and in control, even when you’re not in the same location as your therapist. It’s a huge convenience that many people have greatly appreciated, and for good reason!
If you want to get better.
Talking to a therapist online is proven to make a difference. Life is tough and full of stressors. Everyone deserves to live a life that brings them happiness and joy, and when working through issues with a therapist online, this becomes all the more attainable.
