Online counselling guideline
Online counselling is the future. There’s no two ways about it – the digital age is here and it’s slowly but surely disrupting industries that have been operating in the same way for centuries. Education is shifting towards online platforms, ecommerce grows year on year, and we are beginning to see shifts in therapy too.
Getting started in the world of online counselling can be a confusing and worry-ridden process. Key questions about how to begin, confidentiality, and whether it’s worth the effort rear their head again and again.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Therapy
Advantages: Technology has advanced to a stage where stable internet connections, software like Skype, FaceTime (with clear concern from clients), Vsee.com - growing internet use means that there’s never been a better time to start counselling online.
Enables people in remote areas, and those who are disabled or housebound to access service
It is usually fairly affordable and convenient. A Computer with a good Internet connection is all it takes to get online and begin your work. Typically, this is available from home.
Online counselling may also be effective in eliminating social stigma associated with receiving therapy. Online counselling allows access to such service in private without having to visit the counselling centre. It may allow the client to feel less stigmatised without having to be seen by others in the waiting room, the administrative staff or any other person.
There are concerns around confidentiality, privacy and unreliable technology. Or at least no less confidential than face-to-face counselling. Confidentiality is a big issue in counselling, but it’s just as at risk from someone listening in at the door, or a phone being left off the hook, as it is from interceptions from hackers. The internet has come a very long way in its short lifespan, and risk decreases everyday.
Therapist are not in a position to respond directly to crisis situations.
The scope of help provided can be limited. Human givens therapists already engaged in remote working report successful delivery such as relaxation, guided visualisation, psycho-education. However, there are specific concerns about the use of some of these skills for online counselling. So, it suggests that it will not always be safe and helpful.
Online counselling platforms: Synchronous: Client and Therapist will be connected at the same time and be engaged in a two-way conversation. As such, this is similar to the traditional therapy setting. Typical platforms: Skype, FaceTime (clients must give consent, adds an element of insecurity in relation to the confidentiality of information), vsee.com, Asynchronous: this works via a series of ongoing exchanges. Neither of you have to be at the computer at the same time; rather, you will send messages and therapist responds, adding a further level of flexibility. Typical platforms: email
