Who Can Benefit from Teletherapy?

Who Can Benefit from Teletherapy?

Connection: The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.

With each day that passes, we’re making constant changes.

Doing our best to adapt to a reality that’s both uncertain and ever-evolving.

And as you adapt, you might find that some aspects of daily life are getting a bit easier.

But it’s also completely normal to experience difficulty with all the adjustment.

If that’s you, it might be a good time to tap into additional support.

And teletherapy is one great option.

Today we’re highlighting 5 examples of who can benefit from teletherapy:

1. If your mobility is limited.

For some of us, physically getting ourselves to in-person therapy poses serious challenges. And under the current shelter-in-place order here in Minnesota, many of us are now experiencing limited mobility for the first time. Whatever your situation, one clear benefit of teletherapy is the freedom it affords us to transcend our current circumstances and connect with care providers.

2. If you live in a remote area.

The Twin Cities metro area offers a variety of emotional wellness support options. But, if you live outside this area, you know how challenging it can be to connect with the care you need. No question, increased accessibility is one of the greatest reasons you might benefit from teletherapy. (Do you live anywhere in Minnesota? We’re here, ready to support you.)

3. If you need greater flexibility.

From shifting work schedules to last-minute care-giving responsibilities that arise, flexibility is one of the primary reasons you might benefit from teletherapy. With no commute time or childcare needs to factor in, many clients find it easier to carve out time for therapy. (And nothing says “flexible” like caring for your emotional wellness from the comfort of your own slippers and pj’s.)

4. If you’d like additional support between sessions.

If you’re accustomed to in-person therapy, the online platform can take a bit of getting used to. But after the initial adjustment, most clients are pleasantly surprised by the unique tech options that can complement teletherapy. For instance, at Sonder, many of our providers offer inter-session support and education through NeuroFlow, an app that tracks client progress, adjusts care as needed, and delivers customized evidence-based tools and resources.

5. If you’ve ever considered in-person therapy.

Maybe you’re a seasoned therapy client, who’s already experienced the benefits for yourself. Or perhaps you’ve always been curious about giving therapy a try. Either way, we’ve got great news: Teletherapy has been shown to be every bit as effective as in-person therapy. Which means there’s no better time to reach out and get connected!

Wherever you are, we’re ready to meet you there.
