Online Counseling Gains Popularity in South Carolina!

Online counseling or etherapy services are gaining popularity in South Carolina, just like on the coasts. It offers the same high-quality mental health care you’re accustomed to, all from the comfort of your home. With online therapy, you, your children, or your partner/spouse, can connect with a therapist through a secure website and have a counseling session via video chat. This convenient option makes it simpler than ever to prioritize your well-being and relationships without the hassle of visiting a counseling office.

How Online Therapy Works In
South Carolina

One thing that many people don’t realize is that you need to see a mental health professional who is licensed in the state where you are physically located.  In our field, the service (i.e. counseling) takes place where you as the client are physically located.  This means that if you are in Charleston, SC you need to see a therapist who has a South Carolina license to practice counseling or therapy.  At Synergy eTherapy, we have mental health professionals who are comfortable and experienced providing counseling services online and are licensed in several different states, including South Carolina.

Online Therapy Has Many Benefits

Convenience: Online Counseling Saves You and Your Family Precious Time

Online therapy saves you time. You don’t have to worry about driving fighting the Columbia traffic in rush hour to make an after work appointment. Instead, you can pull up our secure platform on computer and start your counseling session right there in your office.  With online therapy services, you save yourself the time you would usually spend getting to your car, driving to an appointment and waiting in the waiting room.  Your therapy appointment can fit more easily into your busy schedule, because you only need a minute or two to login to your computer and then the time you are meeting with your therapist.

Online Therapy Gives You Options

Research tells us that the most important thing that determines if counseling will actually help you is your relationship with your therapist.  This means that if you are going to invest your time, energy and hope in counseling you want to make sure you are seeing a therapist you feel comfortable with!  You want someone who’s personality is a good match for you, who you trust and a therapist that has the expertise to help with the specific issue you are facing.

Some parts of the state have lots of options for counselors.  If you live in a larger area like Columbia or Charleston you may be able to easily find a therapist that you click with who also has the training around your specific issue.  However, if you list in a smaller city, you may have only a few therapists to choose from.  And what if none of those therapists feels like the right fit?

That’s where online counseling can be a huge benefit.  Online counseling opens up your options so you can find a therapist who is a good fit.

Accessibility: Online Counseling Is Easy

Some people have specific needs that make it difficult to get out and go to a counselor’s office.  Online counseling can be an effective way to get around many of these barriers.  For instance, someone who is on bedrest for a high risk pregnancy, is in a wheelchair or uses an oxygen tank may find it very difficult to attend counseling.  If you are seeing a therapist online, you don’t have to worry about whether or not the building has adequate parking, an elevator or a sufficient restroom.  Instead, you can participate in counseling from anywhere you are comfortable in that you know will meet your needs.

Some people avoid starting counseling, because they are afraid others in their live will know they are seeking therapy.  This can be especially true for entrepreneurs and businessmen & women. In small circles and small towns, it is common that these professionals are well connected.

As mental health professionals, we want to think that the stigma around getting counseling is going away.  In a perfect world counseling would be so common that going to your therapist would be just as normal to mention in casual conversation as going to the dentist.  However, we know the world isn’t perfect and there are many reasons you may just want to participate in counseling with more anonymity.  Online therapy offers you that chance.

With Synergy eTherapy, you can participate in high quality counseling with a psychologist or licensed therapist from anywhere in the state of South Carolina. You can easily participate in online counseling without having to worry about risking your confidentiality in a small town or business community.  You don’t have to worry about running into someone you know in the waiting room or that a friend might recognize the car in our parking lot.

Does Online Therapy Really Work The Same As In-Person Therapy?

Online therapy sounds ideal, but you can’t help but wonder: Does it actually work? It’s common to be skeptical of new things, so if you haven’t participated in online mental health services before it makes sense that you want to do your homework before starting.

The simple answer is that yes, online counseling (also called Telehealth) can work.  In fact, research has shown that online counseling can be just as effective in treating many mental health concerns as in person counseling.
