Text-based therapy is a type of online counselling. It uses typed text to communicate. Users take it in turns to type.
Format may be as in Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and other similar programs.
In text-based therapy, you don’t need a microphone or webcam. That makes it one of the most accessible types of online therapy.
Once, I had an American soldier client suffering from PTSD. He was sidelined to an Asian country to recuperate.
Using text based therapy was useful for him in therapy because he did not feel the need for face to face contact.
He found it easier to write his thoughts rather than speaking them. Also, it was good for him who had difficulties with privacy … and was daily at home alone.
Yes you can choose text-based online therapy! It may be a best fit for your current life situation and issues.
