How Online Therapy is different than tradtional therapy.

Counselling is a form of psychological therapy in which people open up and discuss their problems in an environment that is safe and one on which a person can depend and rely upon. This usually requires presenting yourself in person in order to talk to a therapist at a time that a therapist has available. is an online forum that provides you with counseling or therapy services in a rather non-traditional manner. These services are rendered online, at your convenience of timing and location. The idea is that you do not need to take time out of your busy schedule and go see a therapist in their office between 8am - 5pm. Where they are available on weekdays only, charging you an average rate of $250 an hour. To make your life easier provides you with therapists online, so that you sit at home and talk to them. Moreover, it is entirely up to you how you decide to utilize our services. You may schedule sessions of different time durations as well. You will feel secure knowing that all our conversation are encrypted and HIPAA complainant in order to maintain your privacy. We only hire trained and licensed psychological professionals.


We have different services and forms of communication that you can use. For starters, you may ask a question from a trained professional for free. All you have to do is post your question on the “Ask a Question” tab on the Start Talking website- and wait for one of our therapists to respond. Following this communication, you may or may not continue using our services. Once you register for a session with a therapist. You have the option of using our secure messaging feature from your phone, tablet or computer. Or you want to use our live video therapy via video conferencing, again done from the comfort of your home at your convenience. You may also use the public forum where you can discuss your problems with a group of people with similar problems, mediated by a therapist. It’s more or less like group therapy.


We also provide couple’s counseling services and marriage counseling services, by trained couples’ counselors. Most couples find it difficult to take out time to see a therapist during working hours, due to their own work-routines and therefore is the perfect forum for them.
