Advantages of Online Therapy
Online therapy offers accessibility to individuals who have difficulty in attending face to face sessions due to distance, time or physical hurdles that may mean travelling is not easy. There are numerous phobias and mental health issues that might make it difficult to go to unfamiliar places or remain in unfamiliar surroundings, such as agoraphobia or social anxiety.
Talking to your therapist online offers flexibility in scheduling sessions and a time saving without the travel. It allows patients to receive therapy from the comfort of their own homes, making therapy possible for those with tricky schedules or those who prefer a familiar environment.
By having therapy online, you won’t have to pay any travel / fuel or parking costs.
Some patients feel more comfortable and confident in opening up by having their sessions remotely. Online counselling and therapy provides patients with an opportunity to receive mental health support in a confidential and private manner, which is essential for individuals who may feel stigmatized or uncomfortable seeking therapy in a traditional office setting.
