Now that we live in a high-speed digital world we can connect with people in ways that were unheard of only a few years ago. Distance has become a thing of the past, and it makes no difference if you live next door or across the world.
Technologies have now opened the way for a revolution in online training, counselling and coaching, making it not only easily accessible and time saving but very appealing.
What kinds of therapies work online?
In general most types of counselling and coaching work very well online. Using programs such as Skype makes online counselling a very attractive and effective alternative to face-to-face counselling especially for individuals who are housebound, those with tight schedules, for people who travel extensively, and people living in rural or isolated areas far from a therapist office. Research has also shown that young people take to online counselling very well. This is because they have already become comfortable with internet and social media and see it as a normal way of communicating.
More about counselling
Online counselling of any kind is similar to its face to face counterpart; however, instead of having to make a visit to your therapist you can receive the same professional care online. And, the best thing is that you can have a session with your therapist from anywhere in the world.
Are there limitations of working online?
For some people being physically present with their therapist or coach feels like an essential part of the experience, especially if they are not tech-savvy, so for those reasons they usually dismiss the idea of working online.
Also, the scope of therapy tends to be limited, especially when it comes to more severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar and severe post-traumatic stress that require a greater degree of physical presence and direct treatment. But for most situations, we have found online counselling, coaching and mentoring to be highly effective.
Sometimes online counselling is the only option
We use Skype video conferencing which enables us to reach across borders to our clients. In fact, many people meet us online because they wouldn’t be able to otherwise. We meet with people from all over the world, but even stay-at-home parents who meet with us during nap time or in the evening, which is perfect for them because otherwise, they’d have to get a babysitter in order to come to our clinic. Enjoy the benefits of being coached, mentored or counselled in the comfort of your own home or office with privacy, no travel time, and flexible scheduling that caters for your busy life.
How much does it cost?
The cost of our online therapy is similar to face to face because there is the same amount of work involved. However, we do offer a range of packages that attract benefits. We handle payments through PayPal or direct debit prior the session. We also have a subscription program that offers you more flexability greater access to your therapist
