Online counseling proves to be one of the most effective forms of therapy at the 2016 Boston Nami Walk Event. Also known as e-therapy, it now involves a digital and optional face-to-face encounter between the counselor and the patient.
Why Resort To Online Counseling
Lots of people, especially the depressed ones, are intentionally avoiding getting professional help because of the stigma. Declining mental health, as a myth believed by many, is a sign of getting crazy. Availing professional help, therefore, became a metaphor that one is getting crazy.
It is one of the primary reasons why online counseling is here – to avoid stigma. While many are ‘brave’ enough to subscribe to traditional face-to-face therapies, the burden of exerting time and effort becomes the main issue. In this online therapy, counselors are reachable anywhere and at any hour convenient for the two of you. No need to get out of the house, brave the traffic and the weather, and waste a lot of time just to get ready for an appointment.
How Effective Can It Be For Everyone
People who are always engrossed on their jobs, studies, and families find this type of therapy more effective than the conventional ones. People who are suffering from social anxiety and stressed situations find more comfort in online counseling.
Regardless, licensed therapists behind these digital facilities are guaranteed to assure that their level of expertise remains the same and that data privacy is their number one priority. Their response to every situation where their advice is immediately needed is shown to be undeniably faster than that in traditional counseling.
Experts in the field of psychological health, as well as participant counselors and psychiatrists, are hopeful that this event introduced online counseling very well. It is presented to be a new and guaranteed avenue to decrease a person’s chances of being depressed. Online therapy, as they conclude, is an effective way to mitigate a worse mental issue which the public needs to hear about nowadays.
