Ever think that to see a therapist you have to see someone face-to-face? then you’re wrong, not in this digital era where therapeutic services are offered online. One online therapist is Betterhelp.com/start that provide just that.
First, the organisation goes through a consultation to work out the right therapist for you and your needs, therefore getting the right help rather than just a generic therapist. I myself have in the past seen a therapist that had no understanding of my issues which was not very helpful and it makes you feel pretty rubbish as well.
There are many reasons why people would opt for seeing a therapist online. I suppose the first one would be if you don’t feel comfortable in a physical room with someone, it is much easier talking to a person online.
If you have social anxiety, like myself then the process of actually traveling on public transport to see a therapist is mentally testing and then having to do the therapy on top can be quite tricky depending on the severity of your mental health condition.
Another reason could be accessibility for some people. If they live in rural areas to travel a distance could be problematic, so having access to a online therapist is ideal for them.
Having a therapy service online means there is more opportunity in the choice of therapists you have, meaning more change to get someone trained in a specific area that you want to work on too, win-win for both sides
With having an online service means more clients been seen which could give testimonies of the services. Therefore a better light of the quality of therapy you will get. This could provide confidence knowing that the therapy will be good quality.
