Telehealth Counseling

Telehealth counseling, also known as online counseling or e-counseling, is a form of mental health therapy that takes place through digital communication technologies. It allows individuals to receive counseling and therapy services from licensed mental health professionals remotely without needing in-person visits to a counseling office.


Here’s how telehealth counseling typically works:

Virtual Sessions

Counseling sessions are conducted via video conferencing platforms, such as Zoom, Skype, or other secure telehealth software. This allows the therapist and client to see and hear each other in real-time, just like in face-to-face sessions.

Phone Calls

Sometimes, counseling sessions may also occur over phone calls if video conferencing is not feasible or preferred.

Secure Communication

Therapists use encrypted and secure platforms to ensure client privacy and confidentiality during sessions.

Assessment and Treatment

During telehealth counseling, therapists provide the same types of assessment, treatment, and support as they would in traditional in-person counseling. They may help individuals with various mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, grief, etc.

Benefits of Telehealth Counseling:


Telehealth counseling eliminates the need for travel to a physical location, making it more accessible and convenient for individuals with busy schedules or mobility challenges.


People in remote or rural areas can access counseling services from licensed professionals who may not be physically present in their region.


Some individuals may feel more comfortable discussing sensitive or personal issues in the privacy of their own space.

Continuity of Care

Telehealth counseling can be particularly useful during emergencies or situations that may disrupt regular in-person counseling services, such as a pandemic.

Telehealth Counseling

It’s important to note that while telehealth counseling is effective for many individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone or every mental health concern. Some people may still prefer face-to-face counseling, and certain mental health issues may require in-person assessment and treatment. Overall, telehealth counseling has become a valuable and widely accepted option for mental health support and therapy.
