I wish I could answer that question. I have never tried online therapy. I have never seen a therapist in my life. I have tried, but no therapists specialize in what I need. Have to tried to look for some answers to your questions about yourself online?

I actually wanted to BE an online therapist, as I did my psychology degree but didn't want to actually be a face to face psychologist (due to social anxiety, and other things), but if I wanted to do it online, you I to also do it in person too. Damn.

Anyway, there are the standard therapists / psychologists who generally do in-person sessions but who (especially nowadays) will also do zoom / skype sessions. I don't think a lot of them would do strictly text / web chat or the like.

You do also have the purely online text / chat-based therapist services like Betterhealth that you're talking about. I actually signed up for that, but never did it as I found it too expensive for the amount of help I personally would get out of it. It's something like $80-$120 p/month or something...I can't recall, though you can get a discount on that to make it almost half the cost.

If you google online therapy there should be others like it. Just be careful they're legitimate.

Just to add there is a qualified Therapist who puts out YouTube videos Kati Morton who does questions and answers sessions. She puts out a lot of useful videos and there is also HealthyGamerGG who is a qualified Psychiatrist and also a Coach who also puts out many useful informative videos. He might also accept questions too. From what I have read on these Forums finding a good fit Therapist can sometimes be difficult so probably always worth reading the feed back of others before commiting time and money etc... Hope this helps. :)

That's good info Guy 👌

I don't got a lot of experience with therapists, but I can see one problem with online therapy.

Body language. Breathing. How a person behaves in front of a therapist. A good therapist will pick up on these things. In theory, for example, an alcoholic could drink a bottle of wine before a session and therapist wouldn't know.

Ideally, I'd find one locally. Is there a independent website that allows patients' comments? In some countries there is. Otherwise a recommendation from your doc?
