According to a study, online therapy sessions were found to be 80% as or more effective than traditional in-person therapy and counselling. Online therapy is not much different from in-person sessions, the therapist will still speak to you, this time via video call.
This makes it not only more convenient for you, but also allows for greater flexibility in scheduling a session – as you do not need to spend time commuting or waiting.
There are many possible reasons for a person to seek therapy, but no matter what reason it is, it takes a courageous person to make that first step in wanting to be healthier.
Some turn to therapy because they are feeling down, anxious or overwhelmed. A life-defining situation, such as a death, divorce, new work environment or even new family members, may be cause for a session.
If you currently feel like your problems aren’t going away despite your best efforts, or if you have trouble concentrating on work, are filled with constant worry or sense of helplessness, if you have trouble sleeping or staying awake, or if you turn to substance or alcohol abuse resulting in a change of mood and harming others around you, you may want to consider exploring therapy.

Forever is a pretty long time. The number of sessions you attend really depends on the personal issues you are addressing and the goals that you want to set for yourself.
The recommended number of sessions is 6 to 12, with a frequency of once a week. However, it is best to speak with your therapist and come up with a schedule tailored to your needs and lifestyle.
There is no hard and fast rule for reaching your goals. Just remember to keep communication open with your therapist, even if it means needing to change to a better suited therapist for your situation.
Sometimes things may seem worse before they get better. During your first few sessions, you may have to dig deep into emotions you may not have even realised were there. Exploring this side of you may be uncomfortable, or even scary, but it is a completely normal part of the process.
Experiencing difficult emotions is a good sign that you’re gaining access to information within yourself. Your therapist is there to guide you towards your goals, and to ensure you are not overwhelmed by your feelings. With enough effort and work put into therapy, those difficult emotions may not pop up as often.
