How Can Online Therapy Help Me?

The great thing about online therapy (also known as “teletherapy” or “e-therapy”) is that it comes with all benefits of traditional therapy—only it’s cheaper and more accessible. 

As an online therapy platform, Emote’s goal is to provide everyone with the same quality therapy experience they’d receive at a therapist’s office.

In fact, by speaking with a licensed therapist online, your mental health needs can be addressed at a moment’s notice, cutting out long waitlists, limited visitation hours, and high out-of-pocket costs. All you’ll need is an internet connection and a computer or smartphone.

Benefit: Get immediate support when it’s convenient for you

By using virtual mental health services like Emote, your comfort is in your hands. 

One study on online therapy expressed an overall 92% satisfaction rate, with users highlighting convenience, privacy, response time, and quality of service. With online therapy, you can schedule video sessions, use in-app messaging, or a mixture of both. What’s important is your comfort. 

Benefit: Understand your feelings and identify your triggers

The role of a licensed counselor or therapist is to help patients understand and cope with their emotions. This includes severe emotional responses, also known as triggers. To do so, they use psychotherapy techniques like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to create a safe, comfortable space for you to speak and learn about yourself. And what is a more comfortable space than your own home?

One study has proposed that virtual CBT sessions are more effective than in-person sessions. By communicating virtually, you don’t have to worry about how you look, sound, or feel. You can just be yourself.

Benefit: Find healthy solutions

You may feel like you’re alone in the world, but you’re not. Depression affects more than 264 million people worldwide. Other mental health conditions like anxiety, BPD, or PTSD are also common—and manageable. 

With on-demand and telehealth services like Emote, you can develop healthy coping strategies. Through mindful, personalized live sessions, an online therapist can provide you with the toolset to cope with day-to-day stressors, relationship issues, trauma, and other concerns.

Benefit: Enjoy your life again

Online therapy is not a direct replacement for in-person therapy. However, it does offer you and thousands of others the chance to improve your well-being, address mental health issues, and regain the ability to enjoy life.

Just by speaking with a professional, the weight of everyday stressors or serious medical conditions can feel less daunting. Emote is here to help you achieve this.
