One of the unexpected changes that the global pandemic has brought to our world is the sudden increase in online-only interactions. In order to reach customers while we all socially distance ourselves from one another, companies have relied on digital methods for providing products and services to clients who are still needing face-to-face interactions.
At Novus Mindful Life, we have discovered that providing therapy and counseling services through a digital medium has been a lifeline for those who are finding that the lockdowns are creating difficult situations for their healing and recovery.
For those suffering from sexual addiction, the sudden absence of accountability and long hours alone at home can be a recipe for disaster. Being encouraged to remain at home and avoid going out in public can make it difficult for those who depend on counseling services to receive the help they need.
To help those who are in need of a friendly face and encouraging word, we have made it possible for clients to receive the same therapy and counseling sessions that they have come to love – in an online-only format!
With online counseling (or teletherapy) services, clients can interact face-to-face with their therapist from the comfort and safety of their own home. All that is needed is a device with a strong internet connection, and the counseling office can be anywhere one needs it to be! This has opened up brand new doors for those seeking counseling to receive the help they need in difficult times.
The Benefits Of Online Therapy and Counseling
While teletherapy is a relatively new experience, the pandemic and restrictions on in-person treatments have helped create new avenues for patients and clients to interact. You may be surprised to find that there are a variety of benefits to working with your therapist online!
At Novus Mindful Life, we often receive feedback from clients who are impressed with the various benefits that online therapy has added to their lives:
- Added flexibility in scheduling appointments and online visits.
- The convenience of meeting digitally helps to decrease the chance of canceled appointments due to travel issues, illness, etc.
- There is no commute to get to your therapist!
- Sometimes the comfort of your own home can provide an increased sense of safety and reduce anxiety.
- Not meeting in-office can reduce the tension that comes from being seen by others visiting a therapist.
- You are more likely to feel comfortable opening up to your counselor when you are in an environment where you are comfortable and safe.
None of us expected that this past year would contain the events that it has, but we are encouraged to see how many new individuals are seeking the help of licensed and trained mental health professionals in this time. When crisis strikes, it is often the crucible of struggle that leads individuals to seek the help that they truly need.
