A brief blog about Telehealth counseling because a lot has changed in the past few months and telehealth counseling is one of those change here to stay.
I was hesitant at first, now I find my sessions with clients to be deep and as effective if not more so to in-person sessions. The benefits make telehealth superior to in-person sessions due to the added convenience for everyone. No one has to find parking and there’s no commute time, and my clients get to see me from the safety of their own home, office, or car.
Inline with my changing opinion of telehealth, others are saying online counseling is gaining in popularity and will likely survive the pandemic as it’s easy and effective and convenient. As I said, no parking and no commute time.
My intention is to continue offering telehealth when the pandemic is over. Having no office due to the pandemic, I no longer offer in-person sessions except when it is safe to do so and the client can come to my home, but my preference still remains telehealth.
