Instant Messenger Counselling, also known as Instant Chat Counselling, allows the client and counsellor to interact and respond back and forth via text. Sessions take place in 'real time' via the internet using IM. Communicating with an Online Therapist can be a tremendous support system during difficult times.
Instant Messenger Counselling is an excellent resource for swift feedback which can be very comforting for those in need. With the opportunity to re-read your instant chat messages at a later time, you can gain a clearer understanding of your feelings and actions. This can help you to implement changes where necessary and create a better quality of life.
