Overcome Your Depression with Online Therapy

Category: Depression | Last updated: May 20th, 2019 | Reviewed and approved by:

Do you have feelings of sadness and hopelessness, problems sleeping or are you experiencing a loss of energy and interest in daily activities? Feeling sad or having mood swings are just normal reactions to the ups and downs of life that everybody experiences. But if emptiness, worthlessness and helplessness have taken hold of your life and will not go away, you may be suffering from depression.

Most often, depression interferes with one's daily life and causes distress for both you and those who care about you. It makes it tough to function and enjoy your day-to-day life. You can no longer work, study, eat, sleep and enjoy life like you once did. Some even experience depression that is like living in "a black hole".

Our therapy for depression is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It's your automatic dysfunctional thinking that perpetuates your depression. It keeps you in a downwards spiral of negative thoughts about yourself and the world around you. With the guidance of our online therapy program for depression and your therapist, you will learn that these negative thoughts are not reality. Rather, they are dysfunctional beliefs about your self and your life, and are something that can be replaced with more realistic and healthier ways of thinking. Using CBT you will learn coping strategies, so that you eventually will be able to face previously feared situations without getting anxious or feeling depressed. The focus of the therapy is not on the past and what caused your depression symptoms. Your therapist will work on making you feel better about yourself, here and now - and in the future.

"This is a self-directed program that has helped me to understand more about why I am feeling anxious, and helped begin to change the dialogue in my head. I am not "cured" now that I have finished all of the sections, but I feel more hopeful that I am on the right path. I still get anxious but I am better able to handle it and talk myself out of it. This program combined with meditation, exercise, journaling (part of the program) has helped. I exit knowing there is more work to be done, but feeling better than when I began. Thank you!"

"It has only been a couple hours so far and I have not heard back from my therapist but just going through the worksheets and the prompts in the journal has been really good to let some things off my chest that I haven't really spoken to anyone about and such an affordable price."

"I am about five months into using Online-Therapy.com and I'm so glad I started the program. I've tried therapy in the past, but I never found someone I really clicked with, and I always craved more guidance/exercises in addition to talking things out. Online-Therapy.com's self-guided worksheets and exercises act as a great supplement to a weekly chat with a therapist, and I've found this combination has really worked for me. I also think it is a great feature that you can switch your therapist if you feel like it's not a good fit--I wasn't completely happy with my first assigned therapist but after reading through other therapists' bios, I chose on my own and have been loving working with her ever since. I am rating the program four-stars because it is pretty expensive (although I'm working with my insurance to see if it's possible to get a small percentage reimbursed) and I've also had some issues with scheduling my weekly chats (the website is very strict about only scheduling four chats per pay period). Overall, I highly recommend trying out Online-Therapy.com and seeing if it works for you!"

"Online Therapy and my therapist here is very helpful. Rachel is encouraging and I feel comfortable communicating with her openly. She has been very useful in helping me see things with more objectivity and compassion. Scheduling is easy and convenient and pricing is thankfully affordable. Really glad I ran across this website."
