There are many benefits to Virtual Counselling, one of which is that you are no longer limited by geographical barriers. You are free to choose a counsellor who might not live near you, but is the right fit for you. Research has discovered that the most important piece to determining the success of counselling is “therapeutic fit”. Therapeutic fit means that the client is easily able to connect with their counsellor.
If you live in a remote city or small town, or just can’t find a counsellor that suits you in your hometown, online telemental health counselling provides more options and opportunities to pick someone that makes sense for you. Maybe your currently travelling the world and having adventures, but still need or want to speak with a counsellor – this is another great reason for virtual counselling.
Online, Virtual or Ecounselling (these terms are interchangeable), also provides clients with the ability to work on their mental wellness from the comfort of their own home. This creates confident surroundings. You can, even, do counselling in your pajamas with a cup of hot coffee! Some clients love the convenience of online counselling, and even tentative clients warm up to it quickly.
Hannah started offering online counselling this past year, because many of her clients wanted to do counselling with a partner or family member that either worked or lived out of town. However, she expanded to anyone wanting to do virtual telemental health counselling, because she started getting request from clients in smaller towns.
