More on Online Counseling
Overview of Online Counseling
  • Online counseling generally refers to the provision of professional mental health services concerns via communication technology (Internet & phone). Often called e-therapy, etherapy, e-counseling, online therapy services are typically offered via phone, email, real-time chat, and video conferencing. Some clients use online counseling in conjunction with traditional psychotherapy, and others use it as an occasional check-in tool for their lives.
  • Online Counseling includes three different services: live chat counseling, telephone counseling, and email counseling. These services are called "online" because they occur either on the internet or on the telephone. Customers can elect to participate in live chat sessions, live telephone sessions, or asynchronous email chat sessions.
  • Online Counseling allows clients to access services from the comfort and convenience of your home, office, or other "virtual" location, rather than "in-person" or "face-to face" land-based office. It is especially appealing for individuals who are unable or unwilling to see a mental health professional in person. This service can be a useful introduction to counseling and can be followed by a migration to my land-based practice, or vice-versa. The key idea here is to maximize the options available for you to receive counseling services.
  • Some people opt for counseling on an ongoing basis, while for others, a single session related to a specific problem. However, it is important to note that online counseling can be very helpful, but is not available for emergencies or crises.
Benefits of Online Counseling
  • Responsive/Immediate Service - Arrangement of online session is short.
  • Convenience to your schedule - With online counseling, you can access counseling whenever you need it.
  • Flexible Location - it happens wherever you're at (i.e. in the comfort of your home, office or while traveling in your car). Counseling is not limited to the counselors within a convenient driving distance.
  • Saves you travel time and expenses - no childcare fees and no need to lose money or precious time by leaving work- no travel time or travel expense. Scheduling a face-to-face 45-minute appointment takes really more like 2-3 hours, once you factor in travel time and/or make childcare arrangements.
  • Meets you exactly where you are at - Some of you will need just a single session, while others will benefit from several helpful sessions. We can even use the Skype program right through your PC.
  • Private and anonymous – If your privacy is important, now there is no need to suffer alone. You won't be seen, or potentially seen by others while going to or from sessions.
  • Becoming the tool of preference - As the world becomes more hectic and people have less time, online counseling is being viewed by some as the preferred method to receive counseling. Perhaps small issues can be solved with a quick phone call thereby avoiding a potentially bigger problem.

Advantages and Disadvantages
  • There are advantages and disadvantages to online counseling as opposed to face-to-face counseling. Anonymity appeals to a lot of people because some may be more comfortable sharing very personal information about themselves such as victims of abuse and trauma or when it comes to revealing experiences that involve shame. Having all the time that is needed to write emails may help some people clarify the issues being addressed and help them focus toward resolution. The convenience of online counseling is a big draw for many as well. People's lives are so hectic at times that it may be impossible to schedule daytime appointments. Distance or disabilities could prevent some from being able to access the therapist of their choice in person.
  • The most significant drawback of online counseling is not being able to interpret body language, facial expression, tone of voice, and so forth - with the exception of microphone and webcam use. The client, however, may add emotions that they are experiencing in brackets as they go along (ie: smiling now, feel like I am going to start to cry now). Some problems cannot be resolved online. For example, someone who is suicidal should seek immediate in-person assistance and someone suffering from a serious mental health disorder or requiring medication would need ongoing treatment with a face-to-face therapist. Due to the technical nature of this new form of therapy, complications regarding complete confidentiality may arise and servers may go down which would affect access and response time.
