Virtual Therapy

Virtual Therapist Near Me

A Better You Wellness offers nearly all its services online (in-person sessions available on request).

You’re going to love the benefits!

It’s convenient…

It can’t get any better (or easier!) than doing therapy or coaching in your own space. Just think – you’ll have access to all the comforts of your environment, such as food and beverages, without being regulated by the pesky “no food or drinks” signs in the waiting room. You can repurpose your commute time into time for pure reflection and last-minute review of any assignments from the prior session and planning time for the week ahead.

And, no need to dress up-you can even come to therapy in your underwear, so long as you are appropriately clad from the waist up or whatever part of you is on camera. You get complete control over the temperature and the comfort of the furnishings in the space. And get this – if you want to have your furry friends nearby to comfort you, you can!

It saves time…

Who wants to waste time commuting to and from an office… and battling for a parking space when you get there?

Do something productive with that time (like reflecting on what you’ve gotten from your sessions!).

It saves money…

There’s no need to spend money on gas (these prices are ridiculous!) or additional wear and tear to your vehicle.

Plus, since the overhead costs are minimal for virtual coaching, I will happily pass the savings off to you at a discounted rate off the bundle or standalone coaching price when you take advantage of virtual coaching.

It’s more environmentally friendly…

When you keep the car at home, you’re not contributing to our ongoing problem of high carbon dioxide emissions. So, when you take advantage of virtual therapy or coaching, you’re helping save the planet.

It gives me a window into your world…

Depending on the type of service, there could be a benefit to receiving it where your day-to-day challenges take place. For example, I’ve had clients take sessions from the comfort of their work office. Since some of our work involves anchoring techniques or role-playing, practicing in the space where you will most use the skills can be extremely beneficial. This helps to “retrain” the brain from its default coping strategies and into the environment where such strategies will be most utilized.

And it’s as effective as in-person services.

There are differences between virtual and in-person coaching, some of which will be perceived as pros for some and cons for others. The differences between virtual coaching and in-person coaching are numerous.

In-person coaching:

It may work best for those who do not have a quiet or private environment to be coached and those who need a change of scenery.

It can also make rapport-building and body language observation quicker and easier.

It can also make rapport-building and body language observation quicker and easier.

Virtual coaching:

It is a great option for busy people since it reduces commute and parking time. You also don’t have to worry about the frustration associated with heavy traffic.

Virtual coaching allows service availability to clients in rural areas. It also provides an option for coaching continuity when a client is away from home on a trip.

There’s also ultimate privacy – you don’t risk running into someone you know on the provider’s premises.

If you’re feeling unwell or have a contagious illness when you feel well enough, you can attend sessions online.

Virtual coaching can even be preferable for those with a comfortable and private space to be coached and beneficial in retraining the brain to associate new skills with the client’s environment.

Here are some helpful tips…

While participating in therapy online is convenient, some pre-requisites will help you get the most out of the experience:

  • Must have an electronic device, such as a tablet, laptop, or cell phone, with a microphone
  • Electronic devices must have access to a strong, reliable, secure Internet connection
  • If using a cell phone to connect, a cell phone stand can help stabilize the device
  • Quiet, and preferably private space where interruptions will be minimal or non-existent
  • Consider using earbuds or Bluetooth to reduce the chance of passerby overhearing
  • Well-lit space – it is helpful to ensure that light sources are in front of your face versus behind you

Virtual therapy offers numerous benefits that make it a popular choice for individuals seeking mental health support. One of the key advantages is the convenience it provides. With virtual therapy, individuals can access professional mental health services from the comfort of their own homes or any location of their choice. This eliminates the need to travel to a therapist’s office, saving time and reducing stress.

Additionally, virtual therapy increases access to mental health care, particularly for individuals in remote areas or those with mobility limitations. It allows individuals to connect with therapists who may not be geographically close to them, expanding the pool of available mental health professionals.

Virtual therapy also provides a comforting sense of anonymity and privacy that many individuals prefer. The ability to engage in therapy sessions from a familiar environment can significantly enhance relaxation and openness during these sessions.

Furthermore, virtual therapy offers a high degree of flexibility. Many platforms provide a variety of scheduling options, making it easier for individuals to find a time that suits them best. This flexibility can be particularly advantageous for those with busy schedules or unpredictable commitments, providing a sense of reassurance and reducing stress.
