What is Counseling?

Counseling is a process of talking through your concerns with a trained professional.

Online Counseling is a group of hand-selected, high experienced volunteer counselors in Alabama who from Birmingham and other cities. Our online counselors work with you expertly and confidentially on any issue you might be struggling with. 

What is counseling?

Counseling is an umbrella term for talking therapies, where you are provided with a safe and supportive environment to share what is troubling you and are listed to in a way that helps you understand yourself better. The aim of online counseling is to help you find more effective and satisfying ways of living your life. 

Counseling is not like talking to a friend. It is far more effective, not usually offering advice but instead giving you a fresh perspective, helping you find your own understanding of what you are dealing with, and teaching you coping strategies. And it's often easier to talk to a professional than a friend or family member as your counselor is not personally involved in your situation, can offer impartial empathy and compassion, and will not take what you say personally. 

Who can benefit from online counseling?

Anyone who is willing to accept help to look at themselves and their issues honestly and attentively can benefit from counseling.

You may go to online counseling because you are distressed and seeking help with a specific problem. But you do not have to be in crisis to join a counseling session. Online counseling is also very useful to simply gain greater confidence and move forward with your life more effectively. 

Of course you must be willing to put in time and commitment when you attend online counseling sessions, and understand that although it can be very rewarding, change is not always easy.

What issues are suited to online counseling?

Online counseling can help you deal with any of a wide spectrum of issues, to distressing and traumatic events such as the loss of a loved one or a relationship breakdown, to long term psychological challenges like depression and anxiety or past trauma.

And online counseling isn't just for your private life but can also help with your career, including dealing with workplace stress, being more confident, finding better work-life balance, and making better decisions. 

Your Online Counselor

The relationship between you and your online counselor is one of the most important factors in the effectiveness of your online counseling sessions. The aim is to build a relationship on trust with your online counselor, and feel able to confide in them your feelings and emotions. 

A qualified online counselor is trained to listen with empathy and openness to all you have to share, and all of online counselors have professional experience supporting clients with the problems they are facing. They are not there to in any way judge you or force you to take a particular course of action. Instead, they help you develop a better understanding of yourself and others so that you can make positive choices for yourself. 

Having difficulty as a couple? Our Online Counselors can help improve the quality of your relationship.

Is your relationship under strain?

Are you and your partner constantly bickering or arguing about resolution? Maybe your communication has completely broken down? Perhaps you don't trust each other or are struggling with intimacy after an affair has been exposed? Or has one of you been concealing debts or an addiction from the other?

While all relationships can sometimes suffer under the increasing pressures of everyday life, ongoing and unaddressed stresses can leave you feeling exhausted, depressed, desperate and with low self esteem. 

While a relationship is at breaking point it can seem as if separation or divorce is your only option, but talking through your problems together with a trained relationship counselor can help you get to the heart of your conflicts and come to value each other's beliefs and feelings.

Talk to us, together 

Our closest relationships can provide us with some of life's greatest happiness and satisfaction.....until they start to break down.

Here at Online Counseling, we see many couples who have turned to online counseling and therapy as a means of improving or rescuing their relationships. Our experienced relationship therapists work with you together to help you rebuild your relationship or, if you wish to separate or divorce, to do so as amicably as possible. 

Your online counselor's aim is not to resolve the issues for you, but to develop your skills so you can resolve the issues yourselves. They will encourage you to talk openly about difficult topics and explore your childhood and family history. By analyzing your behavioral patterns and the ways in which you communicate with each other, they will also help you see discrepancies in your and your partner's behavior and teach you techniques to improve your communication. 

Ultimately, we work to support you as a couple to identify patterns and modes of communication and behaviors so you can both take responsibility for your own choices and actions and work out the best way for you to resolve your complications.
