ONLINE THERAPY ALLOWS YOU
to get help whenever required
Most of us lead busy lives nowadays, making it either difficult or impossible to attend therapy sessions when we feel the need to talk to someone. Between balancing your work and personal life, finding the time to make an appointment with a professional therapist is minimal. Online therapy offers the perfect (and practical!) solution – and at Lauren Moore Counselling, we have this option available for individuals who are unable to attend an appointment in person, or who prefer to talk via online channels.
Online therapy, also sometimes called web therapy, telepsychology, phone therapy and text therapy, offers you interaction with a qualified and registered counsellor via a website, phone or mobile applications. Thanks to technological advancements, the way in which patients receive counselling has evolved and is now available via the world wide web. Our communication can take place via text or verbal communication, depending on what you as the patient are most comfortable with. We make use of popular mediums like Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp, etc.

Online therapy offers several benefits:
Besides making it possible for more people to partake in counselling sessions, online therapy offers several benefits when compared to in-person therapy. Some of these benefits include:
The primary benefit of online counselling is the convenience it offers. You do not have to take time out of your day to drive anywhere, you can simply meet your counsellor at the touch of a button – in the comfort of your own home, or wherever you prefer.
In some instances, online counselling is more affordable than in-person therapy, and of course you will be saving money on having to drive somewhere, or having to take time off work, etc.
Many people have gotten so used to communicating via technological devices, that it is more comfortable for some to share their feelings via online channels. This is especially applicable to adolescents who grew up in the digital era. If you think about it, most young adults today chat mainly via texting, which means that talking to a counsellor via texting will be more comfortable for them. If a person is comfortable during their counselling session, it is likely to be more effective.
- Easier Access
With online therapy, people in rural areas can talk to a professional counsellor without having to travel long distances into the city. It is also useful for patients who are chronically ill or disabled, as they do not have to leave their home to attend therapy.
Most often, online counselling channels are consulted for the treatment of:
- Stress & Anxiety
