Research has demonstrated that online therapy can be just as therapeutic as in-person therapy when conducted effectively. It provides the convenience of therapy in a location of your choosing, giving you the comforts and convenience you need during your session. It allows people that may not have time for an in-office session, to receive support in an efficient and timely manner.
Online therapy can also beneficial to people who have mobility concerns or health concerns. Often commuting to an office is too exhausting or just isn’t physically possible. Online therapy enables people to save their energy for session, as opposed to focusing on physically getting there.
Attending a session virtually can also allow clients to focus on what’s going on for them in the moment, at a location that is the most calming for them. Sessions can be attended on a quiet beach, in a forest, on your favorite couch, or a serene place in the sunshine. The locations to your counselling are your choice, and your counsellor can support you in choosing the session location that best suits your needs.
