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?
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.
