  1. They don’t want to admit they have a problem. Therefore they don’t go to counseling.
  2. Don’t want go to a counselors office in fear they may be recognized by someone they know.
  3. Don’t go to see a counselor because they don’t want to file a health insurance claim in fear that their employer with find out they are being seen for mental health issues. Therefore possible being fired from their job or not getting a promotion they deserve.

Online Counseling Services address these issue by offering the following:

  1. Admitting you have a problem carries less Stigma with it because it is not made publicly known as with traditional counseling services. With online therapy you have more privacy and it is more anonymous because you are doing from the privacy of your home.
