Online Therapy Can Help
Everyone will agree 2020 is proving to be a very difficult year for everyone. Still, some people are more emotionally vulnerable than others and feel more isolated and concerned about how they can cope during these stressful times than others. You may be in isolation due to the pandemic, but you are not in isolation with your worries.
Perhaps you may be worried about your health, or the health of another person? Maybe you have concerns about your job or your finances? Sometimes the feelings of loss and confusion or grief can feel overpowering, but it’s all valid.
The physical distancing that COVID-19 brings means we are not able to physically be around our friends or family, this plays an essential role in happiness, positive mental health, and the feeling of belonging, all of which are imperative for optimal mental health.
Therefore it is reasonable to experience feelings of low mood and detachment.
And this is where online therapy comes in
You can now talk to a fully-qualified therapist professional who can offer you emotional and practical help just in the same way as if you were able to attend a physical appointment with them but without worrying about the social distancing.
Sometimes being able to talk to someone without having to be in the same room means you might open up to them more easily about your worries – if you can’t see them, perhaps you’ll feel more comfortable in being honest.
Now you can talk to a therapist online and have the listening, supporting, and helping roles they provide, directly in your own home from the safety of your sofa.
Because online therapists passionately believe that every single worry you have is valid – however trivial you may think it may be to others, therapists appreciate it is like a tsunami to you.
With a qualified online therapist, you can receive their time talking about whatever concerns you may have via Skype, FaceTime, email, or just the phone – whichever way suits you best to have a chat and to overload…
You don’t need to worry about when and where and taking time off work or away from your other daily responsibilities – online therapists can work their magic at a time that suits you best, and there’s no additional commuting or travel concerns or costs for you to be bothered about.
So, if you have reliable internet access, or just a telephone, online therapy can be a quick and easy approach to treatment that might well have been unavailable to you in these difficult times.
This is your chance to share your emotional load.
So, what can we do to stay mentally healthy?
If you are finding creating your daily structure of exercise, nutrition, having fun activities, and talking to your friends and family with technology aren’t helping you enough to combat the depression, perhaps it’s time you sought professional help.
We must recognise that depression isn’t a sign of weakness and that asking for help and support is the right thing to do if you can’t manage it alone.
By going online to a website such as beecholmeadultcare.co.uk, you can choose a therapist or life coach who can help you through this challenging period.
They’ll help you find new ways to reconnect, even during a global crisis. You’re not alone.
