All of the counseling styles that we have discussed so far does require the client to actually show up to their therapists often and to implement most of the therapy with their therapist. I think this is a very big reason why a lot of people don’t seek treatment and would prefer to stay home and not have any form of interaction with a “shrink.”
Well keeping up with today’s day and age, there are now things that anyone can do right in the comfort of their own home.
Many people might not be aware of it, but there is a form of therapy that has been gaining more attention than previously before and the recent and very little research that has been done on the effectiveness of online therapy seems to be indicating fairly promising results.
A lot of people suffer from certain disorders that hinder them from ever leaving their home and for those people, online therapy has had a lot of success.
You can also ease your way into the actual interaction that you have with your therapist and can have as little as you would like. If you are more comfortable with just messaging back and forth instead of a face to face session, this can be done but should be gradually increased to maybe calling on skype with the hopes of eventually working up to a face to face interaction.
