By counseling and psychotherapy we mean counseling and therapy services offered by a certified mental health care professional, such as a psychologist or a psychotherapist. Working online means that we use Internet services, such as email, chat, calls and video-conferencing to communicate with the client instead of meeting face-to-face.

What kind of benefits are associated with online counseling?

Higher life satisfaction and a more harmonious life.

For many clients meeting online with the counselor is a very practical solution. E-mail counseling works when the client wants to contemplate on life without time pressure. Using calls and video-conferencing are ideal in cases where the client wants to discuss his/hers situation with the psychologist in real time but does not wish to leave home.

Many clients prefer working online to regular face-to-face sessions due to the level of flexibility it offers. For example, it's possible to have a counseling session even without seeing each, just choose not not use a web camera.

In many cases counseling online is the only alternative available due to complicated geographic factors.
