How effective is online counselling?
- Traditional methods of therapy are far too expensive for every person to afford. However, with online counselling people can get the help they need at a cheaper price.
- Some even prefer online counselling because it offers some anonymity, invisibility and provides them the comfort of choosing their own time and space.
- People can choose the therapist of their own choice form a wide range, according to the field they need help in. For example- Individual suffering from Post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD) may choose a professional proficient in that particular area.
- You can also choose international therapists/ psychologists as distance is no longer a problem. For example- If the place you live in doesn’t offer good options for a therapy you are free to choose therapists worldwide.
- You don’t have to worry about missing a session and still paying for it, as you can schedule the sessions according to you. It offers you the time flexibility.
- It is a good option for people who are not yet ready to come out in public about their issues. You don’t have to face the stigma related to mental illness, the rejection and exclusion the society forces upon you.
- Also, online therapy is good for people who have physical disabilities and have a hard time commuting from home to the psychologist’s office or those who have hearing or speech impairment and prefer emails to in- person counselling.
It is a very good option for teenagers as they don’t talk about their issues due to the stigma and are unable to get the help they need to cope with them. Many schools and colleges offer online couselling to their students. Web counselling is also good because expressing our thoughts by writing them down makes us more aware of them and pushes us to address them. Online therapy can be a good start, as opening up to a stranger face to face, about one’s personal problems is not something that comes easily at all. All in all, online counselling is a good option for people with dealing with anxiety, stress and light to moderate depression.
