In today’s world people have complicated busy lives. They want alternative ways to find guidance for those issues often discussed with a psychotherapist. There are many reasons for this. Many people can’t meet with a counselor during normal business hours. Others don’t want their mental health issues documented or potentially known to their employers. Some people live in rural places not well served by top quality mental health professionals. Many people feel embarrassed discussing personal issues face to face. Finally, there are many people too disabled to leave their home.
Distance counseling is a legitimate method of offering service to those people who desire help but can’t attend an office session. If this describes your situation, then Distance Counseling by telephone might be a great way for you to improve the way you feel, respond to others, and effect change in your life.
