"I've discovered that meeting online is just as helpful for clients as meeting in my office." Vassia Sarantopoulou, Counselor - Psychologist
Working with a counselor online will never replace traditional, face-to-face therapy relationships. No one is suggesting that online counseling is better. But that's not the point. Online therapy is not meant to replace traditional therapy; it is another way of caring, one that can reach people who are not getting any other help. Does online counseling help people? Yes. Over 90% of the people who work with a counselor online say that it helped them. Online counseling is a viable alternative source of help when traditional counseling is not accessible. Many people cannot, or will not, go to a therapist's office. For them, counseling or psychotherapy is not accessible. What keeps people from getting help?
A person may be too embarrassed, or too uncomfortable to make an appointment with a counselor.
A person may live in a remote area, far from any counselor's office.
Scheduling, money, physical challenge, conflicting relationships, or misconceptions keep people from seeking help.
If this describes you, online counseling may be a place to start.
It's professional: You connect with a licenced professional in a safe and private online environment. Anything you share is confidential.
It's convenient: No waiting rooms, traveling to an office or leaving work.
It's effective: Major studies show online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy.*
It's private: There’s no chance of running into anyone in the waiting room.
It's affordable: Less financially demanding comparing to individual counseling/ therapy (save on travel and childcare expenses).
