Online Therapy

What is it?

Have your session from the comfort of your own home. Online therapy services provide the much-needed relief and solution for our complex worlds when needed.  Like in-person therapy,  online therapy is conducted in the same manner; a supportive relationship that the clinician upholds for the client, addressing the increasing issues related to work and life stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties,  parenting, family dynamics, and beyond. 

Who is it for?

The LightHouse Arabia offers online therapy across the age range – for adults, teens and children. Sessions take place via ZOOM meetings, and simple-to-follow set up instructions are shared in advance.

Advantages of Online Therapy

  1. Online therapy is very effective:  Despite some having reservations, research consistently shows that online treatment can be very effective for many mental health issues. We encourage you to try it. 
  2. Staying in your comfort zone: We would be the first to say “step out of your comfort zone” but with many clients feeling unsettled & overwhelmed by the uncertain and unprecedented situation of COVID-19, we want to ensure that feels comfortable during the therapy session.  You now have access to your therapist and psychiatrist from the comfort and safety of your home.

  3. Getting professional help and continuity of care: During this stressful, unpredictable time, where many are feeling anxious and isolated, it is important to reach out and seek support from professionals. Online therapy allows you to get the professional support you need, even when you are practicing self-isolation.

  4. Easy access: Online therapy is easy to access. Distance and physical limitations do not prevent people from getting the support they need. Our online therapy platform of choice Zoom, which is free to download, with ease. It offers video and audio conferencing, chat and webinar features across mobile devices, desktops and phones.

  5. Saves time: Online therapy is a sure way to save time that would have been spent on traveling to and from The LightHouse Arabia. We encourage you to use your commute time on a meditation practice, journaling your thoughts, reading a book, doing home-based yoga, etc.

  6. Teens and children will love it: Online therapy is proven to be effective for children & teenagers because they appreciate the online medium, and feel they are able to relate faster and better with their therapist.
