Many people often ask if online marriage counselling really is any more effective than a face-to Face, in-person session. In fact, in many practices, yes. Online marriage counselling can, in some cases, be just as effective as face-to-face sessions with a trained therapist. And with so many married couples raising children, getting a 60-minute/one Hour session without having to add an additional 30 to 60 minutes to your already hectic schedule, seems like quite the benefit!
It has been noted that some of the benefits of online marriage therapy are: you can take it at your convenience, when you can fit it into your already busy schedule; the therapy is flexible and may even involve phone calls instead of face-to-face sessions, which takes away from bonding time, you don’t have to leave work or school for the therapy session, and you don’t have to travel to a therapist’s office. Most therapist’s offices can offer their clients a choice of convenient ways to attend such sessions – meaning that you can always fit it into your schedule no matter what. Many couples are choosing this type of therapy because it offers so many great benefits for both partners, without having to drive all over town to meet the marriage therapist or making a special trip just to have the session done. Also, many therapists and marriage therapists have “homework” for couples to complete prior to the session, which helps them to prepare both themselves and the marriage in advance for the upcoming session.
In the end, many couples have found online relationship and marriage counselling to be a valuable tool in their personal lives. If you or someone you know is struggling in one or more areas of your relationships, don’t delay any longer! Schedule a consultation with a local marriage therapist today!
