Top 3 Benefits of Telehealth Counseling for Executives and Entrepreneurs

Many c-level executives and entrepreneurs find themselves in need of therapy services. Therapy is not just for people who have a mental illness, we all have mental health. Similar to how healthy people go to their medical physician, healthy people work with a psychologist in counseling. Most successful people find themselves having a tremendous amount of stress, both at work and at home. Therapy can help you learn how to cope more effectively with that stress in healthier ways that can benefit you, your business, and your family.

Yet, for many leaders there are some drawbacks and stigma to traditional therapy.  One of the biggest drawbacks is simply the time it takes to come into the counseling office.  And in many parts of Kentucky, it may be hard to find a therapist who specializes in working with successful professionals. Often, online counseling is a much better alternative for managers and business owners, for a number of reasons, here are 3.

Online Counseling for Professionals. Work with a psychologist trained to offer online psychotherapy from anywhere in Kentucky at Compass Counseling.

Online Therapy Offers Flexibility for Your Schedule

One of the biggest reasons that executives and business owners don’t seek therapy is because they think they cannot take time away from the business to take care of themselves. Traditional therapy is usually only offered during business hours, for example, when you are working and it is difficult for you to be available. Online counseling is often much more flexible than traditional therapy. There is no commute time when you choose to have sessions remotely.  Considering the convenience of less time away, it is often easier to have early, mid-day or later appointments with your therapist when it is convenient for you.  

Participate from Anywhere in Kentucky

With telehealth, you can participate in therapy anywhere that you can find a good internet connection and a private location. When it’s time for your online counseling session, you can take over a vacant room at work, lock the door to your own office, go to your car, or your bedroom at home.  To participate in online therapy with Compass Counseling all you need is:

A computer, laptop or smart device (you will need access to our secure app)

Internet connection

Ear buds/ear phones with microphone (not required but highly recommended)

Finding a quiet, confidential place to participate in therapy is usually fairly easy for most people, and it increases your availability for therapy sessions. The flexibility with Compass Counseling’s online counseling sessions offer you the option to seek therapy from anywhere in the state of Kentucky with a board licensed therapist.

Online Counseling offers Confidentiality

Another common reason that prominent businessmen and women do not seek counseling services is that they do not want anyone to know that they are seeking therapy.  In small circles and small towns like those many of us live in Kentucky, it is common that professionals are well connected.  Maybe you are professionally associated with therapists in your town and would like to participate in counseling with more anonymity.  We know that every person has to take care of their mental health, just as their physical health.  If these are your concerns we are happy to be able to offer a solution for you here at Compass Counseling.    

You can participate in high quality counseling with a psychologist or licensed therapist from anywhere in the state of Kentucky. You can easily participate in therapy without having to worry about risking your confidentiality in a small town or business community.  

Management of any business is stressful, and how you cope with that stress will determine how healthy and successful you are in business and in your personal life.  If you are finding yourself in need of support and new ways to cope with the stressors in your business and personal life, online counseling is one option that is available to you.
