Online Marriage Counseling
I am unable to find marriage counseling near me, will online marriage counseling work?
If you are struggling in your marriage or relationship and would like to to explore couples counseling as a way to help you resolve issues, but are unable to find a therapist in your community, you are in the right place. Here at The Online Therapy Directory we have put together a database of highly qualified therapists, life coaches, couples counselors, and hypnotherapists to help you when life gets difficult. Online marriage counseling is changing the way couples are able to interact with their therapist and with each other. You can attend sessions from anywhere in the world and your partner can be across the country or by your side. You are no longer limited to only counselors and therapists accepting patients in your community.
What is online marriage counseling?
Online marriage counseling is the same as in person couples counseling, also known as couples therapy, with the exception that you will meet with your therapist via video conference (such as Skype), phone, text, or email. You and your partner will meet at a time and through a medium that is agreeable to all parties to talk through the issues you may be facing in your relationship. Your counselor will help you and your partner resolve conflicts and communicate in a way that facilitates an improved relationship. Through the process of online marriage counseling your counselor will provide a listening ear and direction or advice where you need it most. This will allow you to be able to make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding your relationship or going your separate ways. When you use The Online Therapy Directory, you have the freedom to browse through our database or have the ability to use the therapist finder tool in order to be matched with a counsellor that is the best fit for you.
What are the benefits of online marriage counseling?
There are several benefits of online marriage counseling that make it an ideal solution for many couples. The convenience simply cannot be beat, especially if you have a busy schedule or one (or both) spouses travel for work. There is no need for both parties to be in the same place at the same time in order to meet with your therapist since you will be connecting via a digital platform. You will also have the freedom to search for a qualified professional who counsels couples with your specific issue outside the bounds of your immediate geographic area. The counsellors and therapists that you will find in The Online Therapy Directory are vetted to make sure they have the right amount of education, experience, and online therapy training to be showcased on our site. In addition, the digital format allows for flexibility and comfort that creates a new level of intimacy while providing you the time and space to collect your individual thoughts.
What is the online marriage counseling cost?
There is no definitive answer to this question as there are many factors that go into how much therapists charge, no matter if they are providing services online or in a more traditional setting. According to our partners at Betterhelp, affordable online couples counseling can range from $40-$70 per week whereas a therapist providing counseling in person could range from $50-$250 per session. Another factor to consider is what type of therapy you are seeking. Unfortunately, insurance companies may not view marriage or couples counseling as medically necessary, and therefore will not cover the cost of such services. Navigating relationship challenges can be stressful enough without the added pressure of whether or not you can afford the cost of couples therapy. Using The Online Therapy Directory allows you to either search our database or use our therapist finder tool to be matched with the right therapist for you needs. Once you narrow down your search, we provide you with the medium to reach out, ask questions, and determine if they are the right fit for you and your budget.
