About Online Counseling
Online counseling is a great option for individuals and couples with time constraints, travel challenges, or who simply would rather experience counseling from the comforts of their own home. It is a convenient, easy, and effective way to get quality support implemented in your routine.
Online therapy, also referred to as telehealth, is the use of audio and video conferencing for the delivery of health care services via remote technologies. Theranest is the HIPAA compliant and secure practice management software that is used to facilitate telehealth sessions.
Telehealth counseling sessions require the use of a computer, tablet, or cell phone and a quiet, private place to talk. Your counselor will send you a unique link via email. Clicking on the link enters you into the session. It is straightforward and very user friendly.
Online counseling makes it easy to continue counseling services even if you are unable to come into the office. Maybe you moved to a different city in Texas and have really connected with your counselor and want to continue the therapeutic relationship. Maybe you are not feeling well enough to leave the house but would still like to process something with your counselor during your session time. If your schedule is tight, you can avoid travel time by choosing telehealth instead of face-to-face. Online counseling is a convenient, confidential, and effective option for remote therapeutic services.
One of the many benefits of online counseling is that it is remarkably similar to face-to-face sessions. Although it may seem different at first, most clients slip into comfortable dialogue once the session begins and simply forget they are not in the same room with their counselor.
Some individuals may be hesitant to choose an online option for counseling services, which is understandable. Online counseling is not for everyone. Fortunately, both in-person and online options are available at Texas Harmony Counseling Center. Whether you would like face-to-face or online counseling, give us a call today. We are here to help!
