Common Reasons College Students Pursue Online Therapy

Every college student is unique and has different experiences. Because of that, many college students pursue online therapy for different reasons. Here are a few common reasons college students start online therapy:
  • Feeling overwhelmed. No matter what you get done, there’s always something else waiting for you. Deadlines have become your worst enemy.
  • Time management. You don’t think you’re that bad at time management. But, the late nights and failed attempts at multitasking prove otherwise.
  • Feeling exhausted. All you want to do is sleep. But, it doesn’t feel like there’s anytime for it. You just have too much to do.
  • Not feeling good. Despite being in college, which is “supposed” to be the best years of your life, you just don’t feel that happy.
  • Uncertainty. You often wonder if this hassle will actually be worth it.

Therapy, in general, can have many positive benefits. However, online therapy provides unique benefits that traditional in-person therapy lacks.
Convenience. Since online therapy is conducted virtually, you can have your session anywhere you have wifi. This could be in your dorm, apartment, or anywhere else you feel comfortable.
Time-efficient. With online therapy, you don’t have to factor in traffic or physically getting to the counseling clinic. Instead, you can pull up your session on your laptop and save yourself some time!
Private. You may not feel ready for other people to know that you’ve started therapy, and that’s okay. Because online therapy can take place where you want it to, you can limit the number of people who know that you’re seeing a therapist. You won’t be walking into a counseling clinic, so you can avoid the potential judgemental looks from others.
