Others may be phobic, trapped in abusive situations, or merely shy, self-conscious or afraid to speak out. Anonymity and physical absence can soften these inhibitions. Many clients appreciate the “disinhibiting effect” of not being seen in-person (Joinson, 1998; Fink, 1999).The psyche of the client is freed for therapeutic self-reflection in many other ways. People tend to be more open and share more intimate feelings and honesty when it’s over a ‘device’ because the relationship is built not through physical presence, by telephonic and email communication, a different opportunity is created for self-reflection, allowing one to be more open and honest.Furthermore, you, as the client, enjoy a certain degree of ownership in the process. You have complete control, starting the session is as simple as making a call from a location of your choosing, and ending it as simple as pressing the red button.When online counselling is at its best, and the positive conditions are in place, clients and therapists experience telepresence and are not only able to interact effectively, but engage in relationships that can offer something special indeed. Believe it or not, experiencing the online other as a genuine, caring person is not as difficult as it might seem.Is online counselling for me?There are risk groups that are not eligible for online counselling (People with severe depression.
