The new way to therapy

Our lives have changed so much in such a short period of time, forcing us to be creative in almost every facet of our lives. However, some of these alterations I just can’t warm up to – and the new way to therapy is one of them.

The benefits of online therapy.

With that said, if I didn’t have access to my psychologist, I’m fairly certain that my PTSD would rule over me like a 15th-century king. I would have little chance of surviving this chaotic time.

The new way to therapy still has real value.

In fact, I can say with a great deal of certainty that I would not get through. But, thankfully, I am coping. Hey, it may not be ideal, but the new way to therapy – at least it’s something. So, I chose to be grateful For anything that will help see me through, I will be taking stock of all things that matter and indeed, those things that ease the burden.

On the other side of the coin, looking at someone on a computer screen just doesn’t feel authentic. Thus, I don’t feel like I am getting the most out of the sessions.

Despite this fact, I remind myself that we don’t always have control over our lives; as much as I wish this wasn’t the case, it is, so I do what I must.

In my life’s journey, I have learned that I must do whatever it takes to make things better.”

As we all should, this is not the time to out-and-out reject the help we get or have access to. It’s a time to grin and bear it, do the best we can and pick up the pieces when this worldwide health emergency ends…and it will end.

The new way to therapy.

I am not at all surprised to hear that others are finding certain things less helpful for them now than before. Almost daily we hear of another tragic aspect to COVID -19 and, well, quite frankly, personally it’s getting more and more difficult to combat my depression. I assume you are feeling it too.


How then, do we ever expect to get out of this and ever expect to recover? I think the answer is that we may not make a full recovery. By that, I mean the world we once knew will be a world we leave behind. In the interim, we have to use whatever is at our disposal to help us navigate through the unimaginable. Sometimes, getting through this will be a moment-by-moment thing. However, we will get through it.

Just don’t give up: a window can become a door; a simple coffee can bring a sense of normality and a video connection with a mental-health professional can pull you into the light. In other words, the new way to therapy still has real value.
