About Online Counseling
The mental health industry has recently joined the countless industries already
offering web-based services. Online counseling is a rapidly growing means of communicating
with professionals, worldwide, via the Internet by means of Live chat or email.
As in traditional counseling, online counseling provides you with access to qualified
and experienced professionals. In addition, online counseling is affordable, accessible,
anonymous, and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from the privacy
of your own home. Avoid the uncomfortable feeling of running into a familiar face
on the way in or out of a clinic. Since you never have to leave the comfort of your
home to meet with your counselor, your anonymity and privacy is completely secured.
Online counseling gives you access to live professional counselors anytime of the
day or night, no matter what part of the world you live in.
Many people are turning to the Internet for professional counseling and find it
to be an ideal way to discuss life's challenges, personal concerns or emotional
problems. Some people opt for ongoing counseling with a single counselor, while
others for a single session with a counselor just for guidance on a specific matter.
