Advantages of Teletherapy

Teletherapy is a newer service, and many questions arise about the ability to provide counseling online. Below, you will find many advantages to utilizing Relationship Recovery for your mental healthcare needs.

**Relationship Recovery only provides teletherapy in the state of Florida whereas coaching can take place in any state/country.

Comfort

Online therapy can provide comfort and a sense of ease throughout the process. Taking place in the safety of your home, you do not have to endure the anxiety provoking drive to the office. You simply sit back, relax, and wait for your appointment time.

Building a positive relationship is one of the most important parts of the therapeutic process, and we have found that clients tend to be more open, honest, and reflective in their own homes rather than an office setting.

Flexibility

There is nothing worse than emailing your therapist to find that it is after hours and they have left the office. Working in a clinical office puts limits on the ability to meet certain needs for clients.

Relationship Recovery’s teletherapy allows for more flexibility with scheduling, last minute appointments, and night/weekend availability. There is also more immediacy for appointment openings due to the lack of restrictions that can come with a clinical office.

Privacy

Privacy is one of the most important aspects of therapy, but there are limits with in person sessions. With teletherapy, you don’t have to worry about seeing someone you know in the waiting room or parking lot, thus creating an “at ease” feeling for your sessions.

Of course, there are limits to privacy. As a client, you should ensure that you are located in a private and safe place for sessions to avoid a breach in your confidentiality.

Streamlined Communication

Teletherapy can provide better communication services. With clinical offices, there might be multiple therapists working in the same location, or an office staff member taking messages. You are never quite sure if your therapist will know that you called.

Relationship Recovery allows one on one communication with your therapist anywhere. Online therapy portals also provide reminders and alerts for sessions, so you never have to worry about missing an appointment and paying any associated fees. Whether you are on the way to the gym, going out with friends, or staying in for the day, your therapist is just a click away.

Efficiency

One of the largest reasons that people do not seek out mental healthcare is because time is limited. Leaving work, family obligations, running errands, starting dinner, who has time to stop by an office for an hour?

Relationship Recovery takes the stress out of finding the time for therapy. Get the kids settled with homework, throw dinner in the oven, and take an uninterrupted hour for yourself to process the events going on in your life.

Ease of Access

Many people suffer in a way that makes onsite therapy more challenging. Fear of crowds, certain physical limitations, and lack of reliable transportation are reasons that people do not utilize therapy services.

Relationship Recovery can reduce the stress of clinic settings by being available in the comfort of your home. Spend less time worrying about getting to therapy and more time focusing on your goals for treatment.

Cost

Onsite therapy creates overhead and unrelated business expenses that may limit their ability to provide flexible payment options. Relationship Recovery eliminates many of these costs, allowing us to provide more competitive sliding scale pricing.
