Is Online Counseling or Tele-Therapy the right fit for me?

Have you ever felt the need to reach out, but balked at sitting in a room with total strangers? Do you live in a rural community and are having trouble finding a local counselor? Are you struggling to cope, but can’t travel or invest a lot of time?

These scenarios and many more are so common in the modern world- the good news is that there may well be a perfect alternative for you out there. Many clients benefit from online counseling and tele-therapy when traditional therapy hasn’t been the most convenient for them in the past. The concept is simple- clients can access counseling services through the communication style they prefer. This may include phone conversations, email messaging, or even video call programs such as Skype or an IM-style chat box. A growing body of research does suggest that both of these strategies, combined properly with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques, can prove effective for a wide range of people and situations. Could this be the right fit for you?

Why might I choose Online Counseling or Tele-therapy?

There’s several clear reasons why you might want to opt for a less face-to-face form of counseling, such as:

Accessibility

Anonymity

Convenience

Secure and private communication

Greater comfort with these mediums of communication

Affordability

Lack of immediate accessibility is a fairly common issue, especially for those living in areas with limited counseling resources, areas in which traffic is dense and cumbersome, or if an individual has limited modes of transportation. Online Counseling or Tele-therapy provides the ability to reach out through a click of a button, a PC screen, or phone line, making this service much more attainable.

For individuals navigating disabilities, such as the hearing or sight impaired, may also simply feel more comfortable reaching out with the benefit of accessibility programs they are used to using. This comfort is also what makes online counseling a popular option for teenagers. It’s not surprising that the demographic who grew up with the ‘net in their pocket can often feel more comfortable communicating this way!

Online-Counseling or Tele-therapy is primarily conducted on our company specific electronic and computer devices. RM3C keeps conversations private, secure, and password protected within our computer systems. Tele-therapists limit the use of their personal devices, and will conduct your sessions in a quiet, confidential, space.

Fixed appointments can become a hassle, where the above options of more convenient ways to correspond will help with scheduling. It also allows the user to avoid the social stigmas that sadly still cling to asking for professional emotional help.

This can make getting that help so much easier, whether you’re a young adult minor who needs to access assistance without parental support, or an adult user who would feel more able to be open in an environment where pre-set judgments on wealth, race, gender, physical appearance and sexual orientation are removed. This anonymity often leads to you being more honest and open, as well. Additionally, the lack of need for physical room often makes online counseling more affordable.

There’s been a rapid growth in online therapy recently, bridging the gaps between counselors and individuals struggling. While the fields have some challenges unique to them, it also opens up new vistas for people not comfortable with traditional therapy, and may be a good fit for you.
