In this day in age, much of what we do is done online. Likewise, if your teen is in need of support, they can find it online as well! In fact, connecting via online therapy for teens offers a range of benefits. Not only are teens more comfortable with the digital format, they also have the benefit of doing therapy in their pajamas! Being at home and in familiar surroundings can make your teen feel more comfortable to open up as well. When teens feel comfortable to open up, our work can be more effective.
Additionally, online therapy has been proven to be effective. The research says that it’s especially effective for issues like sexuality and trauma, which your teen may be struggling with. This means that it’s a great option for those who don’t know how to get their teen to open up to someone new.
Another great benefit is that it can actually reduce the stigma of mental health treatment. Teens who engage in traditional in-person therapy may feel like someone will find out about them seeking support. This can cause them to feel anxious that they will be treated differently or teased because of it. Walking into a therapist’s office can feel very difficult for these teens. But logging onto a secure website can be a lot simpler. And it’s completely private. So, no one knows what you’re doing.
For parents, online therapy for teens is great because it is less expensive than traditional types of therapy. Not all online therapy is less expensive, but there may be some options that can help with your budget. And that means you can get your teen the help they need without worrying about the cost.
