Another Job and On-line Therapy

I haven't been on this site for a while now, because I have been so busy with another job that I have had since my last post. This job is another teaching position and is more demanding time wise. It's okay over at the place that I work at. They are extremely short staffed and people keep leaving like a revolving door (upper management is definitely to blame on this case). I am working in a 3-5 year old classroom bwith a co teacher who is very nice and working with her makes the job. The children in my classroom have severe behavioural/emotional issues which makes working in that classroom quite a challenge. However, these children desparately need support from people like my co-teacher and me.

On another note, since I have been having trouble with seeing therapists through face to face counseling, I thought that I would give on-line counseling a try. I actually like it better than face to face counseling. I have a very intelligent, empathic, compassionate and devoted therapist through the website who responds to messages on a daily basis. She lives in the same state as me in the USA and truely does care about my well being. I also have an "online session" scheduled with her once a week through the website where we talk "live" to each other using the computer chat option. I could choose to talk to her over the phone or through a webcam also. However, I prefer just chatting with her for now, but maybe I'll move to talking on the phone or via a webcam in the future. I like that all of my messages are saved on the website, so I could refer back to them anytime that I want. I could also send my therapist messages anytime that I want and she replies right away to them. So far online therapy is working out very well. I recommend it for its convenience.

Hi Kakee83,

This is great news for you personally.

You are the first person that I know of to have ventured into the world of telehealth. I have no problems accessing my medical support crew so probably won't go down that path.

The ADAA Blog Post by Dr. Peter Yellowlees - "Telemental Health: Convenient, Effective and Here to Stay" answers a lot of questions for first time users of telemental health.

Thanks for the information and your kind words, blackcat64013. :-)

Would you mind messaging me the website you use for online counseling? I would like to try something like that.

I'd appreciate it

If you don't mind please send me the site to me as well. Thank you.

The site is called betterhelp.com for any of those interested in on-line counseling. I highly recommend it.
