Online therapy has had an immense growth period starting in 2020. The need to talk with therapists grew, and it was hard to do so in person.
Therapy platforms like BetterHelp, Calmerry, TalkSpace, and Online-Therapy.com heard the world’s needs and focused on filling the void.
What Is One Benefit To Online Therapy?
One benefit of online therapy is that it eliminates the need for traveling for face-to-face meetings.
This benefit is not just one small benefit. However, the ability to talk to your therapist anywhere in the world is the most significant growth of therapy in the last 20 years.
Before we could hop on a Zoom call or dedicated online therapy platforms app, you were handcuffed to scheduling not only around your busy schedule but also the therapist’s availability for in-person sessions. And the therapist had twenty more people vying for the same time slots as you.
Competing with so many barriers to finding a single therapy session made it hard to attend enough therapy sessions in a month to get the results you wanted to see in your mental growth.
Take this one silver lining from the hard times between 2020-2022 and take advantage of the ability to have your therapist in your pocket.
