StressGroup.com research indicates that online counseling methodology has been proven to be of help to those suffering from emotional disorders such as anxiety, depression, anger, self-esteem, relationships, and more. Online counselors differ in their use of technology, some use a chat format while others use email. Both online counseling services have shown to have efficacy similar, but not quite up to, that of one-on-one therapy. While online professional counseling is somewhat new--only as "young" as the Internet itself--there has now been sufficient time to analyze the data and compare to traditional psychotherapy. A note of caution: wherever you seek online counsellors, be sure to see if they have their qualifications, experience and education degree clearly posted so that you may be sure you are dealing with a professional qualified to suit your needs. Care needs to be exercised when selecting an online therapist.
