Online Video Counseling
What is it?
Unlike traditional face to face counseling where an individual or couple goes to a counseling office, online video counseling is conducted via the internet using video software. With a good internet or WIFI connection one is able to utilize this service with their smart phone, tablet, or desk top computer.
Healing House Counseling is offering counseling services via online video chat. What this means is that through the host MoodyCall, Healing House Counseling is able to utilize HIPAA compliant video chat software that enables those seeking online video counseling to do so from the comfort of their home, work- office, car or wherever they are most comfortable.
Online video counseling may not be suitable for every situation or for every person, but it does meet a valid need and it expands access to counseling services.
Getting your toes wet: online video counseling provides an opportunity to “try it out” without expensive and time consuming commitments.
Anonymity: online video counseling can provide a sense of comfort for those that feel embarrassed or uneasy about counseling. This form of counseling can help reduce the stigma associated with going to the counselor’s office and remove a barrier that may prevent them from actually seeking the help they desire.
Comfort: Some individuals do not go to counselors because of the anxiety they fear it will produce. Online video counseling offers those individuals a chance to seek counseling services from the comfort of their home, work-office, car, etc. They can even wear their pajamas if they want to.
Convenience: There are many reasons individuals do not seek out face to face counseling such as medical conditions that cause one to be home bound, lack of transportation, being a stay at home parent, or in home care giver. In addition, there are those that live in rural or remote areas and do not have access to traditional face to face counseling services. Online video counseling offers a solution to those folks and brings counseling services right to them.
Lower cost: there are still many without affordable insurance or insurance that will pay for mental health counseling. Healing House Counseling offers an affordable option through online video counseling. Individuals can choose a 30-minute session for $30 or an hour session for $60.
At Healing House Counseling, it is our belief that healing is possible and we are pleased to be able to expand access to counseling services. Thank you for allowing us to walk with you on your path to healing.
