What Is Online Counselling?
The work of an Online Therapist is variously known as Online Therapy, Online Counselling or Email Therapy - and simply explained relates to any form of counselling that is conducted over the internet, for example via secure email or Online Chat or Messaging services.
The overiding advantage of using digital media to engage with an online counselling service is that it makes therapy readily accessible and convenient. The therapy takes place within your own home at a time and frequency that suits you best. Many people also find the sense of 'anonymity' that is engendered makes it easier for them to 'talk' about difficult issues - rather than sitting 'face to face' with a therapist.
