Do you wish you could save time commuting to therapy appointments? Are you too busy to see a therapist during typical office hours? Do you live abroad but want to see a therapist who will understand your language and culture?
Online therapy enables you to meet with a therapist from the comfort of your home, office, or other remote location.
Online therapy may be right for you if you:
- Live abroad or in a remote location
- Have difficulty traveling to a therapist’s office due to health or scheduling constraints
- Don’t have time to commute to appointments
- Feel more comfortable getting help in your home environment
- Have to arrange therapy appointments after regular business hours
- Have young children or family commitments at home
Open up in a more familiar and comfortable environment
Although therapists try their best to make you feel comfortable, many people have trouble opening up in an office environment. Being somewhere you feel at ease can make your therapy sessions more pleasant and effective.
While some individuals have difficulty expressing themselves in an office environment, others find themselves facing the opposite problem. The therapy sessions seem to be progressing well. After only a few sessions, they feel they have made substantial progress and improvement. However, when they try to implement the changes they learned in therapy, nothing seems to work. It turns out, the therapist’s office can become an artificial safe space, where you momentarily become a different person. Although this can feel empowering for an hour, you will need to implement these changes in the real world. Online therapy allows you to get treatment in an environment where you can be true to yourself.
Is online therapy right for me?
If your schedule or living constraints make in-person therapy unpractical, or if you have tried in-person therapy but felt you were unable to progress, it’s worth trying online therapy.
Online therapy is not appropriate for all psychological concerns, and it should not be relied upon for crisis intervention.
Online therapy is not suitable for people with thoughts of suicide or homicide. Help is available at the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433) or 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or call 911 for emergency local assistance.
