Busy schedules, time & travel concerns, nervousness about going out in public, privacy considerations, and flexible availability are some possible reasons for using phone counseling services. Many clients discover counselors who might be a good fit for their needs, but are out of their travel range --- Phone counseling opens up a larger pool of therapists with different specialties for clients who live in rural areas, for clients who wish to protect their privacy, and for couples who are in long distance relationships. Sometimes individuals and couples simply want to open up to another person and experiment with the idea of therapy. Couples counseling can be achieved by way of a conference call for couples who live in separate cities. Individual counseling can be scheduled in a way that is tailored to the client's needs.
If you have a brief, one-time question, or would like to determine if the therapist is a good fit for your issues, phone counseling can be a good way to discover answers in a private, convenient, and flexible format.
Although phone counseling is certainly effective, convenient, and helpful, face-to-face counseling adds a crucial dimension which should not be ignored. Phone counseling clients are strongly encouraged to set up at least one initial in-person session during the first few appointments. Face-to-face counseling provides added information, a strong rapport, and deeper trust between client and counselor. All telephone clients are urged to consider how face-to-face counseling might enhance their development and treatment overall.
