by Better Lyf Online Counselling Psychologist

Due to the pandemic since the starting of the last year and ongoing in the current year we all have been hearing the gloomy news around us. Billions of people in all over the world have to cope with sad news, personal grief, economic instability, unemployment, boredom, isolation and loneliness. All of this has impacted directly our mental health resulting into a rise of mental health concerns such as stress, anxiety, depression, alcoholism etc.

And yet, a worldwide revolution of internet related services has reached to a new level silently. One of these revolutions is transforming the lives of many and helping those facing psychological distress during the pandemic. A significant surge in online services during the pandemic has been noticed, psychological counselling is one of them.

Digital therapy or online therapy or online counselling are the popular terms that people generally use to search a psychological services online. Easy internet access on mobile and other devices allows people to speak to a counselor without worrying about going outside. Not only the clients but also the therapist can easily manage the online therapy sessions from home without travelling to their clinics and can avoid any risk for their physical health.

Many of us think a lot before talking to a therapist for the first time, as the stigma associated with it makes us more stressful and this delay can only worsen the situation. But, thanks to the online counselling session that let people seek help who avoid going to a psychologist due to the fear of judgement. It gives people the comfort to talk to a counselor anonymously, sitting in their homes and without the fear of any judgments from anyone around them.

Despite of many advantages of digital therapy or online therapy, we cannot deny that it might not be suitable for some of the people who need immediate and urgent help. People looking for immediate help can try helpline numbers suggested or issued by the local governments as they might not know where to start seeking help.

To overcome long going mental illnesses some people may need medicines with therapy. A psychologist or counselor may refer a client to clinical treatment for mental illness. However therapy also can do wonders without any help of medicines for some people.
