5 REASONS WHY ONLINE THERAPY MIGHT WORK FOR YOU

You don’t even have to leave the house: If you have an online session, you can talk to your therapist or counsellor in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a computer, tablet or smartphone. Maybe you’re struggling with mobility issues, maybe you want to save money on the commute, maybe you can’t get childcare, maybe the weather forecast doesn’t look good! For whatever reason, if having your session via video chat works for you, then do it!

You can keep up your sessions while travelling: Online Counselling gives the option of bringing your sessions online. You might be travelling for work, or on holiday or have gone home outside of city for a few days, and at the time, need to bring your session online.

You can tackle your anxiety: If you are seeking support for anxiety issues or agoraphobia, and don’t feel quite ready to come to one of our centres, the online option could be the best one for you at that time. As you work through your difficulties with your therapist, you may feel in time that you would prefer to have your session face to face. Or not! This is your wellbeing experience, and it has to suit your needs.

You can schedule to suit you: If you have a busy schedule online sessions might work for you. Maybe you’re having friends over 10 minutes after your session, maybe you’re studying for a big exam and every minute is precious. The online option gives you back the time you’d spend commuting without delaying or interrupting your therapeutic work.

You don’t have to live near: The good news is that you don’t have to live nearby. If you’re a farmer living in Offaly, a student living in Tipperary or a busy mum living in Donegal, for example, you can still avail of everything Online Counselling has to offer.

  • "Hi i am new here, i can see how people struggling, always a reason why, i really feel sorry about every on , this wold is going to the wrong direction, no faith in hart. I had depression when i was 17 and couple of years after that. I became disabled with my neck and back issue also i got cancer before but i am still here never gave up. I am 43y i have panic attack regularly now, its very bad, i know what is cause it but difficult to control it. In January i could not breath and eventually my conciseness was on other side, i dead and reborn again, i heave seen things. I know what i have to do but it is not easy, especially nowadays where there is so much negativity , the best to do to help each other and forget our self's. Meditate or going to a Buddhist center also helps. Thank you to be here."
