E-counseling – Welcome to the 21st century

Until recently, consulting with a Dietitian was done face to face. Now it can be done online via e-counseling. But what exactly is e-counseling?

e-counseling is:

confidential e-mail counseling in the privacy of your own home

cost effective – you save gas, time and wear and tear on your car

for those unable to leave their home

for those who cannot drive

for the hearing impaired

for those who live in a remote area

allows you to set your own pace

allows you to express yourself in writing

allows you to wear whatever you want

allows you to be anonymous

allows for the zone of reflection – the time lag between emails helps both the client and the counselor to reflect on the previous communication

There are no automated responses. Only human to human contact via email.

In our fast paced world, e-counseling will continue to grow in the 21st century. It may not be for everyone, but, if you are reading this, you have everything you need to begin online counseling.

See you on the web.
