What is All the Fuss About Counseling Over the Internet?

Telic Thoughts - Mon, 2019-07-01 11:55

Internet therapy is what everyone seems to talk about these days. If you are going through anxiety and depression, then you might want to try online counseling. It helps you understand yourself better and assist you in achieving your goals. Recently, e-counseling has proved to be quite useful and often preferred to traditional therapy where you have to meet with a therapist. Many people these days prefer internet therapy due to its convenience. This mental health treatment method has proved both helpful and therapeutic. Patients don’t have to worry about whether this treatment will work for them because it actually does. You should check out the benefits (and downsides) described at and understand why a lot of individuals are now considering it. Here are some of the benefits.

Enhances accessibility to therapy

It’s not everyone that has access to a professional counselor in their locality. You find that some people live in rural areas where it’s hard and sometimes almost impossible to find a single mental health professional. E-counseling provides a platform such that no matter where you are, you can get all the help you need as long as you have a secure internet connection. Mental illness can be quite disturbing, but the good thing is that there are solutions to the same.

Provides convenience and affordability

When going through online counseling, you will be getting your therapy sessions online in the comfort of your home. You don’t have to travel or anything. You only require a secure internet connection and a Smartphone or laptop. Also, you get to decide when to schedule your sessions. You can choose the time that’s best for you that you know you will be at home. Also, online therapists offer affordable treatment options in case you are not covered by insurance

Provides quasi-anonymity

Online therapy allows users to text from their phone or laptop. Usually, there isn’t physical confrontation with the therapist, but same government regulations are followed like with an office-based therapy. When texting, people find it easier to open up much more quickly as opposed to if they were opening up about their issues in person. You feel relieved knowing that there isn’t someone sitting across the room looking at you and as a result, you can talk about anything. Online therapy enables an individual to lessen their sense of shame and divulge in just about anything.

It can be educative

Mental health is not a topic one can take lightly. An e-therapy platform is quite resourceful in helping people discover more about psychological health. Whether you think your mental health is excellent, online therapy can help you become stronger. There is a lot to learn so that you never get troubled by anxiety or depression.

Online therapy is on the rise. However, that does not mean it doesn’t have its downsides. If you are considering this treatment option then you should know that several insurance companies don’t cover E-Therapy. It all depends on your state and the type of insurance you use. Also, there is the issue of confidentiality and privacy. You see with e-therapy, information is transmitted online, which adds yet another layer of complexity. Your data could be subject to privacy leaks as well as hacks, which are a concern brought about by technology.

Regardless, online therapy has provided a solution to many mental health patients. Having someone who is always there to talk to, can be of a considerable benefit than you realize. Knowing you can always reach out for help from the comfort of your home can play a significant role in your recovery process. When going through mental illness, never hesitate to ask for help.

Why is Chronic Pain Getting You Down?

Telic Thoughts - Thu, 2019-05-02 14:45

Have you lived with chronic pain for a while now? If so, why can’t you get rid of it or at least stem the tide?

For many people in such a position, chronic pain has all but taken over their lives. As a result, everyday things many take for granted become burdensome for those with pain.

If chronic pain has been getting you down, when do you say enough is enough?

Making a Stand Against Chronic Pain

In your efforts to make a stand against chronic pain, here are some thoughts to keep in mind:

  1. You do have options often – Unless the chronic pain is beyond control, you do have options. With this in mind, take some time to research what they may be if you have not up to now. As an example, are you aware of the herbal remedy kratom? Top Extracts kratom capsules work to lessen the chronic pain many deal with. As a result, life can be more enjoyable. This while taking a capsule that is easy to swallow and convenient. In doing research on kratom and other such types of remedies, the Internet can be a great resource. Go online and see what herbal remedy or remedies may be best suited to help you get the upper-hand on the pain.
  2. Your attitude plays a role – Even if you find the right remedy in the fight against pain, attitude will play a role. That said are you trying to be as positive as possible in dealing with the pain? If you are all too often negative about the pain, it can make it become even worse. You can go from not wanting to take part in different activities with family and friends. Before too long; you feel a little isolated. You may also not be focusing on diet and exercise. As a result, your body pays the price. Try your best to be upbeat despite the pain you are enduring.
  3. Your diet does matter – Speaking of what you put in your body, are you doing enough to get the right foods? Not eating well can lead to more problems associated with your chronic pain. As you gain more weight, it can make it harder on your muscles and bones to do their daily jobs. As such, you do not get the daily exercise your body needs. Do your best to get to and stay at a desirable weight for your age and height.
  4. Your workouts are key also – Last, do you get much in the way of daily exercise? Even going for a short walk on a daily basis is better than no exercise at all. Do your best to be active. In return, your body will thank you for it. Yes, it can be more cumbersome to try and exercise when dealing with chronic pain. That said it is to your benefit to exercise.

Dealing with chronic pain is difficult even when you have others by your side.

If you’re not the one in pain, it may well be you are trying to make your partner healthier as they battle pain.

No matter the situation, do all you can not to let chronic pain get you down.
