Privacy and Online Therapy

Privacy and Online Therapy

Online counseling platforms use encrypted communication methods, but you need to protectyour privacy onyour end as well.

Talk to your therapist behind closed doors, as you would talk to your therapist in real life. The lack of privacy is not only distracting, but also unsafe.

Set Realistic Goals Regarding Online Therapy

Set Realistic Goals Regarding Online Therapy

  1. Be realistic. Problems built during the course of years won't resolve in one or two sessions.
  2. Be open to what your clinician tells you. Be rady to try something new.
  3. Take responsability. The only. one that can change you is you.
  4. Set SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timely). Goals help guide therapy. Take sime time to set yours.
  5. Come prepared for sessions. Do your weekly therapy homework, write down anything you would like to remember during the session.
  6. Speak up! Don't be afraid to state what is working and what is not working with your therapist.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug
