In a fast-paced, typically stressful lifestyle, many people, more than ever need to 'unplug' and discuss their feelings and concerns; the irony is that finding time can be a prohibitive factor. Now, remote counseling provides a realistic alternative to traditional therapy, offering individuals flexible options so they can fit sessions into their schedules.
Now, more people living in isolated and rural areas can access counselors via the internat. It is also hugely beneficial for those who are disabled or too sick to make the trip to an in-office counseling session. This method of counseling is also more suited to children, who, in previous circumstances, may have refused speaking to someone due to feeling uncomfortable in one-on-one chats within a foreign environment. Traditional counseling can be especially difficult for children/teenagers suffering from social phobias or anxiety. However, the internet is familiar to them and therefore makes them feel safer: thus leading to the likelihood of a free-flowing conversation.
Online counseling can be more affordable, allowing individuals/families to access the service. With commuting. office rental and overheads being replaced by a computer and internet connection, it's more economical for both counselor and client.
