Online Counseling – Is it Right For You?

In an age where we are doing almost everything online (buy clothes, watch movies, meet people) we are seeing an increase in Online Counseling options. There are many reasons to opt for Online Counseling.

You may be too busy to set up and travel to see your Counselor. You may not have access to your Counselor due to transportation, or perhaps there are limited Counselors in your area. You can get more information regarding online counselling via icofli.

You may prefer asynchronous services where you are not communicating in real-time with your Counselor, but according to your schedule.

Clearly there are plenty of good reasons to want to utilize Online Counseling. That being said, it is important to determine whether or not Online Counseling is appropriate to fit your needs.

A general rule of thumb is that Online Counseling services are not appropriate if you are dealing with a serious, chronic mental illness, or if safety is an issue.

Certainly, serious issues can be addressed quite well with the right Online Counselor but not at times when the face-to-face relationship is required to ensure your or others’ safety or your ongoing health and well-being in light of serious illness.

Perhaps you are looking for a place to vent about your kids, your job, or your partner. Perhaps you need to talk through your options regarding your career. Maybe you are looking for stress management strategies or ways to manage your anxiety and panic.
