Is Online Therapy Better?

Man Experiences Online Counselling

There is research showing that online therapy is effective equally – and sometimes even more beneficial, than in-person therapy.

Everybody is different and so too are their personal problems, so when you contact our team to start your therapeutic journey, we will find the right fit for you.

Let’s look at some of the ways in which online therapy can help you to gain more control over your life.

More Convenient

With online therapy, there are no travel costs and unnecessary time restraints.

Since you will already be factoring therapy into your budget, additional costs such as travel expenses can be eliminated.

To travel to a clinic also adds time onto your therapy appointment and into your day.

If stress is an issue for you – as it often is with a lot of mental health problems, it’s beneficial to be able to eliminate the rush of getting to appointments that may not be close by.


The ways in which we communicate with each other has evolved over the years.

Nowadays, online communication accounts for the majority of our waking hours and it’s also used effectively to sustain relationships of all kinds.

Where factors such as distance or time used to be problems preventing us from connecting with one another, technology has created a viable solution.

Since the connection between you and your counsellor is a ‘relationship’ of sorts, you can still foster a sense of rapport that provides you with support you need.

If you have grown up with the internet being a hub for your socialisation and if you suffer from social anxiety (or another type) online therapy is effective in lessening the stress you might otherwise feel in an unfamiliar setting.


Since the pandemic, many employers realised their staff can be just as productive when working from the comfort of their own surroundings.

At Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling, we already offered online therapy to ensure people who cannot travel to the clinic for their appointment time don’t miss out on the help they need.

But now those who contact us for help are realising they can benefit from online therapy even when it’s not a necessity.

If you have any kind of physical condition that limits your mobility or live in a remote area, the flexibility of online therapy means you get the same quality care you would in our clinic.

The facts are there: online therapy is effective, and when you get in touch with our team, you can work out whether you think you would be better suited to this remote kind of counselling session or if you would prefer to see us in person.
