Benefits to online counselling include accessibility, convenience, and affordability. If you are travelling, or live in a rural or remote area, online counselling is available as long as you have access to the internet. Being able to receive professional counselling and therapy from the comforts of your own home or office and not needing to pay for childcare, gas, or parking are also benefits to online counselling. However, many clients prefer to interact with their therapist in-person. Only you can determine whether in-person or online therapy is better for you.
