– Using Zoom for Therapy to Tackle Stress and Anxiety –
I have always been open to the idea of using Zoom for therapy. I believe it’s a great platform to make my services accessible to those who don’t share my postal code. However, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic highlighted the importance of being able to connect online. These are times of heightened stress and anxiety. Everyone is at risk of going through a crisis. And online therapy through Zoom is how I’m trying to contribute to the fight.
The new face of psychotherapy
Same as other areas of life, psychotherapy has also been transforming over the past decade or so. Most online platforms have evolved. It all started as a means for families and friends to stay in touch. They are now also serving as legitimate business and therapy tools.
When it comes to online counselling, Australia is welcoming the emerging trend. In Australia, best therapists are offering psychotherapy using Zoom to make themselves available to anyone who needs their help. I am one of them.
Using Zoom for therapy of mental health disorders is still psychotherapy. What I mean by this is that the therapeutic relationship abides by the same ethical principles as in-person sessions. Therefore, you can rest assured that it is merely the platform that is different in our Zoom sessions.
What I can help you with by using Zoom for therapy
Governments all over the world are now recommending (ordering, even) social distancing.I’m working on keeping everyone safe, too. I’m conducting online anxiety treatment, as well as sessions for other issues you may be experiencing. At this moment, what I believe is a very potent technique is hypnotherapy for anxiety treatment. For that reason, I’m available for Zoom hypnosis for anxiety in Spring Hill and across the country and the world.
The outcome of severe and ongoing stress for many can be depression. So, I’m also using Zoom to help as a hypnotherapist for clinical depression. I holdZoom therapy for anger management, as well. Some people react to prolonged stress through uncontrolled rage, which is not an adaptive and healthy reaction.
Nonetheless, let’s not disregard that people still deal with issues that are not directly related to the current pandemic. This fact is why I’m using Zoom to implement hypnotherapy for weight control and eating disorders. I’m also helping people as a licenced hypnotherapist for phobias.
In a nutshell, all my services are available in-person and online. The reason? I profoundly believe that a capable psychotherapist can (and has to) make himself available to people wherever they may be. And I know that the quality of sessions with me is the same, whether we’re in the same room, or we’re using Zoom to connect.
