Curious About Teletherapy? Here's How It Works
Getting therapy services can be hard, especially if you're a busy professional. At Think Happy Live Healthy, we understand, and we never want convenience to get in the way of getting the help that our clients need. Our online therapy and teletherapy services are the perfect fit for the busy professional who wants to get therapy services, but struggles to find the time. Let's take a look at how teletherapy works so you can decide whether this form of therapy is a good fit for your needs.
When you decide to start teletherapy, you'll be matched with a therapist who is a good fit for your needs. Your therapist will send you any documents that you need to fill out before your first session, and you'll return them before your first appointment. During your appointment, you'll connect with your therapist via video chat, either on your phone or your computer. We recommend using a computer for a fully immersive experience, but we recognize that this may not always be possible.
In order to get the most out of your teletherapy experience, we recommend setting yourself up in a quiet room where you can interact with your therapist free of interruption. We understand that this may not always be possible, and we're here to work with you to provide the best therapeutic environment given the space you have available. If this means meeting for your appointment while you're in your parked car on your lunch break from work, that's ok too. The better you can get into a space that allows you to clear and quiet your mind, the better.
Your teletherapy appointment will proceed just like any other therapy appointment. You'll talk back and forth with your therapist, and they'll ask you questions to help you process your experiences. If you've previously been an in-office client, you'll touch on past sessions and talk about the progress that you've been making.
Many clients worry that the process of teletherapy or online therapy will be awkward, but it's anything but. Many clients say that after a few minutes of interacting with their therapist, they realize the feeling is exactly the same as being in the office. If you feel nervous or uncomfortable about starting teletherapy, it's a great idea to run those feelings by your therapist, who will be able to work with you to help you feel more comfortable.
If you're ready to start online therapy, we're here to help. We can find a teletherapy appointment. That makes sense for your busy schedule. Reach out to Think Happy Live Healthy today to learn how we can get you the help you need, with the time and space that you have available.
