It used to be a traditional way.
I once worked in the office. On armchair and tools.
But with it, the problem of high costs. Wasted time. Enduring more than 2 hours travel daily. The cost of fuel. Increasing weight, blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue.
I’m glad times change.
With the growth of the mobile and the internet, society has progressively moved work channels from the physical to the digital.
The lines between work and life are being erased in the process. Time and money are saved. The threat of burnout and mental health challenges are addressed.
Distance is no longer a problem between people engaged in a working process.
Whenever I do Skype or phone Psychotherapy sessions with counsellees from the Philippines, Qatar/Dubai, Australia, USA, Japan, or anywhere else around the world, I’ve come to feel that I’m more productive.
I experience refreshing working remotely than when sedentarily confined in a clinic cubicle. I’m glad I can do running or recharging while helping anyone, anywhere!
Productivity happens more in the comfort of home. Or, natural environs of individuals engaged in life session.
There is a beneficial domino effect to this location-independent Psychotherapy.
Its natural fruit is seeing that the main value exists not in the structure of a fixed physical space of an office. But in the value of output made.
I think I’m not alone in believing this to be so in our times.
The working world in general is showing a a rising trend of decreased need for a central physical hub to do work.
I’m reading US National Library of Medicine, which suggests that remote, digitally-based workers have higher performance outputs. The less office means increased productivity by up to 70%, according to Time Doctor Stats.
With technology spurring growth and saving costs, don’t be surprised if you see me championing a non-traditional office-less “psychotherapy without borders.”
Via Skype or phone. Or, in coffee shops, beaches, or malls. It’s organic. Natural life flow. Time/cost-effective.
In short, a more healthy option towards your search for healing and wholeness in your life.
