Virtual counseling offers the same services as in-person counseling, but sessions are conducted virtually. Online counseling offers a convenient avenue for patients to seek care for their mental health from the comfort of their home, workspace, or other private area.
Virtual counseling appointments are an opportunity for patients to receive a diagnosis and to collaborate with the specialists at Gold Counseling to devise a custom treatment plan tailored to address their mental health concerns.
Virtual counseling is also an avenue to administer a range of therapeutic treatments such as talk therapy.
Just like in-office counseling, virtual counseling appointments can be tailored to treat various mental health concerns for individuals and can also be used for couples counseling and more.
As the use of telehealth in the treatment of mental health concerns continues to grow in prominence, more and more studies confirm that it is equally as effective as in-person mental health care. In fact, for some individuals, telehealth can be the most effective treatment option.
Lack of access to nearby mental health care and transportation or time difficulties prevent many people from receiving the treatment they need. Telehealth offers effective, convenient, private, and accessible mental health care.
Although many mental illnesses may not be fully curable, treatment through telehealth can help patients better manage the symptoms of their condition and empower them to live a happy and fulfilling life, taking control of their condition.
Telehealth can help individuals with mental health concerns of all degrees of severity from helping individuals cope with everyday stressors to addressing serious illnesses. Telehealth providers can also refer patients to in-person services in situations where they are necessary, making them a valuable and convenient first point of contact in anyone’s mental health treatment journey.
The most obvious benefit of telehealth in counseling care is affording patients a convenient avenue to access effective mental health care from the comfort of their own homes.
However, the benefits don’t end with ease of access. Many patients find that they are more comfortable discussing their mental health concerns in an environment of their choosing than they can during a telehealth appointment. Telehealth can put patients in touch with specialists to address their specific mental health concerns who may otherwise have not been available to them due to geographical proximity.
By eliminating travel from the equation, telehealth can also save patients time and money by cutting down on gas and parking costs. At Gold Counseling telehealth counseling appointments are available to afford patients convenient, comfortable, and effective care for their mental health concerns.
Telehealth greatly improves access to mental health care by breaking down barriers to access in a myriad of ways. By affording patients access to remote mental health care, individuals who do not have access to transportation or a nearby mental health clinic or therapist can still receive the crucial support they need, increasing the availability of mental health services.
Telehealth also provides an effective option for patients suffering from mental health conditions that may make it difficult for them to leave the house such as certain phobias. Virtual care can also help to ease the burden on in-office visits which can significantly reduce wait times for patients to see a specialist.
Being able to access an appointment from home or the workplace reduces the time it takes for patients to keep up their appointments which prevents individuals from putting off crucial mental health care due to time constraints.
