The Benefits of Online Video Therapy

The Benefits of Online Video Therapy

Professional therapy gives you an opportunity to explore your thoughts and learn how to communicate with others openly and honestly. These skills can enhance your life, your relationships with others, and your relationship with yourself.

However, a number of issues can keep people from visiting a therapist, such as busy schedules or travel hassles. If this sounds familiar, there’s good news. You can get access to high-quality counseling through online video therapy

In this blog, the providers at Thriving Center of Psychology explain what’s involved with online video therapy, and they also discuss some of its many benefits.

An overview of online video therapy

The online video therapy services available at Thriving Center of Psychology use a web-based video conferencing software that allows you to meet with your therapist online. We provide comprehensive psychotherapy (talk therapy) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) through our online video platform.

You get the same personalized, one-on-one attention that you would get during in-office visits. To participate, you only need a high-speed internet connection, a computer with a camera, and a microphone. You simply download our special video conferencing software before your first appointment to connect with your therapist.

Online therapy is a resource for a variety of mental and emotional health issues, such as:

You can also use online video therapy for life coaching sessions, which can help you make better decisions about your life, your career, and your relationships.

Benefits of online video therapy

The online video therapy services we offer at Thriving Center of Psychology offer many benefits, especially for people who aren’t living close to one of our offices. These benefits include:

No travel hassles

Traveling to in-office visits costs money and takes time. There are also other considerations that could make traveling to your appointments difficult, such as finding parking and affording gas.

Additionally, people who don’t drive or those who don’t have access to a vehicle can still reliably meet with our skilled therapists without relying on public transportation or the inconvenience of getting a ride from someone else.

Accommodations for busy schedules

Online video therapy allows you to meet with your therapist no matter where you are — at home, in the office, or in your hotel.

You can ensure the consistency of your therapy appointments no matter how busy your life is or where you’re located. Even when you’re on vacation, you still have access to your therapist.

Ideal for the physically limited

If you’re limited by a physical disability, you can still meet with your therapist on a regular basis without making special arrangements.

If you’re not feeling well, you won’t have to cancel your appointments. You can meet with our therapy team from the comfort of your own home.

Increased comfortability

An additional benefit of meeting with your therapist from home or elsewhere is the ability to talk in a comfortable environment. This may even help you open up more.

If you’ve been thinking about therapy, online video therapy could be just what you need. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Thriving Center of Psychology today.
