Benefit of Online Counselling in These Stressful Times

Hope Online Holly

Please Note: Using our latest online help that we are providing is not meant to replace or substitute actually being at Hope Rehab itself for detox and treatment. Hope Rehab is where you experience the powerful realizations and unity working together as a group, learning to work as a team, or the face-to-face intimate relationship with your counsellor. Part of what makes Hope one of the best treatment centers is our secure environment and unique atmosphere, the Thai culture, the diverse team, the facility and accommodation, the food, sharing the everyday lessons learned by living in our community, also all our many recourses and much much more…we do understand this! — However, our online program that we have (initially used for aftercare) now also used for pre-Rehab preparation due to delays in getting here is working very well and is now part of our package.

Hello and welcome, wherever you are in the world. We’re living in unprecedented times, and I imagine the unpredictability of it has rattled a few nerves out there. Without the distraction of our day-to-day work and activities, many will have been left with a lot of time to think about their life and reflect on themselves, maybe for the first time. The unfortunate truth for some is that they might be uncomfortable with what they find there.

Perhaps without regular, in person contact with our friends you’ve started to question “do they even care? / like me? / what friends!?”Perhaps with all the extra time on your hands and lack of stimulation your intake of alcohol or drugs has risen to a level that you’re not content with (or certainly wouldn’t want anyone to know the true amount!). Or maybe you’ve been put on furlough, and now you’re having an identity crisis; who are you without the job that held so much of your sense of self?

Well, I have two pieces of good news for you: 1) These thoughts are completely NORMAL and 2) online counselling could be the perfect way for you to resolve these and many other issues you are struggling with.

But first, lets back up for a second and consider why counselling is a good mode of therapy for you. How is it more effective than a glut of self help books or a winge to your friends? I’ve compiled a list of just some of the benefits of engaging in counselling but there are many more:

The good news is Hope Rehab Thailand is accepting international clients again. Thailand is prioritizing medical tourism visitors for licensed facilities like Hope. The first step is to get in touch, and we will start your medical visa application. If you require immediate help, we suggest online counselling by one of the therapeutic team. Some of our Counsellors offer independent online professional counselling and coaching. On the next page you can select a counsellor of your choice.

What about online counselling?

Technology has allowed us to bring counselling to you, wherever you are in the world. Sessions are no longer restricted to office hours in set locations. Therapy can be arranged at a time that suits you, from anywhere you like, across a host of mediums. Some people are also more comfortable and less anxiety is induced receiving therapy online as opposed to the traditional face to face settings. Indeed, although we’re always working hard to remove any social stigma, some clients will feel more comfortable accessing therapy online because it adds another layer of privacy.

Whatever is concerning you, wherever you are, I urge you to contact one of our counsellors and find out how you can emerge from this pandemic more confident and healthier than you were before. Take a look at some of the topics we can help you with and the counsellor’s profiles Here.

As I final thought, and perhaps most importantly, I want to tell you that the hardest part is going to be making the first enquiry, but it will be absolutely worth it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

The first step is the hardest in every journey of dreams. There is nothing else to fear unto whosoever has shown the tenacity to begin; because, once having started, the hardest part of the mission is the one lying behind.

Summertime Blues – Depression, Anxiety, and Addiction Issues

A lack of love for the summertime may just be down to personal preference, but it can also be due to an underlying disorder or because we’ve had bad experiences at this time of year. Summer can bring out the worst in us, and this is particularly the case if we have some kind of addiction issue.
