What is Online Therapy?
Deciding to see a therapist or a psychiatrist can be a difficult decision. There are many things to consider before seeing a psychiatrist or therapist. One of the first things to consider is going in person or attending your therapy online.
Online therapy offers many of the same benefits as face-to-face therapy, as well as additional benefits! Many prefer online therapy because it allows them to seek help while enjoying the comforts of home. According to Very Well Mind, “Online therapy, also known as e-therapy, e-counseling, teletherapy, or cyber-counseling, involves providing mental health services and support over the internet.”

BetterHelp Success Stories
How My BetterHelp Helped Me Feel Alive Again Hitting The Bottom Of My Life – Amanda
“I am totally in love with BetterHelp! I needed therapy, not medication. And so many other people out there are in the same situation. Medication just covers up an issue, it doesn’t help resolve it. Sometimes we just need someone that’s outside our minds and patterns. Someone to help us form new thoughts and patterns, or better reactions. This kind of interactive therapy has allowed me to control my situations, instead of letting them control me. This is probably my greatest accomplishment so far because I feel in control. Before I started this therapy, I felt grey, colorless and dying inside. Now I feel hopeful, happy, content and calm. I highly recommend this service to anyone who needs thorough help figuring out their issues and their selves. It made me want to be alive again.”
How I Was Able To Feel Back To My Old Self Again – Andrea
“BetterHelp has made a huge difference in my life. After I was done working with Kristin in June of 2017, I felt back like my old self again. She taught me things to keep in my mind when the obsessive/bad thoughts come in. She taught me to put myself first in my thoughts and not to dwell on the past. She gave me a lot of tips and tricks that greatly improved my thinking and coping with anxious thoughts.
I also loved being able to speak with an objective 3rd party person that is really on my side and wanted to help me work through things. She really taught me that at the end of the day, I need to be happy and she gave me tips on how to accomplish that in my own mind. To let things go. To not dwell.
After working with Kristin, I feel like my old self again. I am happy, have dreams and I smile. My mind is at peace. I do yoga now and love to be mindful and fill my mind with peace and love. I really credit BetterHelp to helping me through my troubles. Kristin was a great counselor. I would highly recommend to anyone who is feeling down in the dumps and needs someone to discuss with that is going to be non-judgmental and work for your peace of mind.”
