Online counselling lets you connect with a qualified psychotherapist from the privacy of your home.
With lockdown in full force due to COVID-19 as well as anxiety around what’s going to happen post lockdown, there has been an increase in demand for virtual therapy.
Many are experiencing the effects of social isolation, financial distress and the potential loss of loved ones. Perhaps you too are feeling stressed and lonely, working from home while homeschooling your children or suffering a loss of income? Maintaining social distancing or being in self-isolation, struggling to find ways to fill days is a new reality for us. If you live alone you can feel isolated. If you live with family or friends, spending 24h together every day may feel frustrating and can cause an emotional overwhelm too. So it comes as no surprise that the coronavirus pandemic is likely to be bad for our mental health.
When online counselling can be beneficial?
While traditional face-to-face counselling is often considered preferable, online technologies have made counselling and psychotherapy accessible to everyone. It can be invaluable to disabled or housebound, those living in a country where therapy in their prefered language is unavailable, or those for whom it may feel safer to avail therapy from home even in post coronavirus world.
You can address almost any kind of issue through online counselling, like:
- Stress and anxiety problems
- Relationship issues
- Career and work-related problems
- Self-confidence issues
- Problems coping with difficult changes
- Family problems
- Sexuality issues and many others

Coronavirus related issues you may want to explore
If you’re meeting with a therapist online because you’re social distancing, you may have coronavirus-related issues to address, such as:
- How to cope with my anxiety surrounding the coronavirus?
- Now that I’m spending more time at home, what steps do I need to take to stay as mentally healthy as possible?
- Are there specific strategies I can use to build mental strength?
- How should I talk to my children about the coronavirus?
- What can I do about my financial stress during this time?
If you welcome online counselling as an alternative for face-to-face sessions, you may be surprised to discover that online therapy may work better for you and your needs. However, if you find that you still prefer in-person appointments, there is no need to worry. Once the social distancing efforts have subsided, you can return to face-to-face meetings in the clinic again.
