4 Important Benefits of an Online Family Therapist

We all rely on relationships in various guises to support us and enrich our lives. Few relationships are as important in forming us as people than those we grow up with – our household family. Often, it is expected that these relationships should simply be perfect, but they very seldom are. As with any relationship, they require work to grow into healthy, nurturing structures. An online family therapist like Dr Tienie Maritz can help you navigate this journey.

The goal of therapy is not to find an instant solution to all problems, but rather to learn how to communicate better, work on ways to solve problems, and to find new or different ways to work together as a unit. By developing these skills, families are able to improve how they handle conflict, avoid blaming each other, and find healthier ways to get through challenging situations. What’s more, thanks to the availability of online solutions, engaging with a family therapist is more convenient than ever before.

In a situation where a group of people are dealing with intricate and challenging issues, no matter the nature, convenience is an important factor to consider. In addition, given the current situation we all find ourselves in, an online family therapist offers a host of other benefits, including:

  1. Safety

While many of us are experiencing “Covid-19 fatigue”, this is not the time to drop your guard. By engaging with an online family therapist, you can minimise your family’s exposure to external risks. This is especially important if someone in your household is a high-risk individual.

  1. The comfort and familiarity of your own home

New or strange spaces can cause certain people to put up their guard or be reluctant to share their thoughts or feelings in an open and honest way. By engaging in online therapy, you have the advantage of being in a familiar space.

  1. Join from anywhere

Not only can you engage in therapy from home, but from anywhere. This means that you and your family can carry on with your sessions with your online therapist even when you’re not all together in the same space. This is useful for families with busy schedules or who aren’t currently living together.

  1. Your choice of channel

Dr Tienie Maritz is a highly qualified psychologist and respected family therapist that offers online  sessions across a variety of channels. This means that you can opt for engaging over WhatsApp, Skype, or Zoom – whichever one you are more familiar with.
