Get Anxiety Help Online

Getting anxiety help with online professional counseling is relatively new and there is a small body of research to support it's effectiveness.

If you don't want to leave the comfort of your house or you find face-to-face counseling intimidating, then receiving help for anxiety by a professional counselor/psychologist online may be helpful for treating anxiety disorders.

Online counseling is not the same as therapy face-to-face but it may be helpful for some individuals and not for others.

But before you decide that online counseling for treating anxiety is for you there are a number of possible disadvantages for treating an anxiety disorder. These may include:

  • the risk to confidentiality (re. due to hackers)
  • greater difficulty reading body cues
  • problems helping people in urgent and dire circumstances
  • difficulty with introducing treatments such as exposure therapy
  • insurance companies may be less ready to pay for online therapy.

If you want a professional to talk to and help you to take control of stress and anxiety then these professional counselors are available by phone or internet.
