Do you value the personal connection of face-to-face dialogue?
Do you prefer the structure of regular in-person sessions?
Would you feel more comfortable in a spacious, comfortable, hygienic office?
If you're considering in-person therapy, discover the comfort and security of connecting in the same room.
In-person therapy, also known as traditional or offline therapy, involves meeting with a therapist in a private office setting.
Before we had to quarantine, therapy almost always took place in person. With the arrival of telehealth, clients felt they’d lose the close connection of sharing a physical space.
While some clients adapted easily to the change in format, others missed that physical proximity. Now, they’ve returned to their preferred in-person sessions.
One important benefit of meeting in the office is that it reduces a client’s distractions: Facing a screen can tempt someone to respond to their phone constantly while in the therapy session. If that describes you, maximize the value of your therapeutic process with office visits.
In-person sessions also bring the benefit of body language and nonverbal cues, which can be an important aspect of therapy for some individuals. As therapists, pay attention to that and respond to you individually, compassionately, and insightfully based on these cues.
In-Person Therapy Offers a Wide Range of Therapeutic Techniques
In-person therapy provides access to a wider range of therapeutic techniques, such as play therapy for children, as well as experiential techniques for all ages. Some of these techniques don’t lend themselves as easily to online therapy.
In-Person Therapy Provides Structure and Accountability
In-person therapy offers the structure and accountability of regular in-person sessions, which can be beneficial for those who struggle with motivation or consistency.
Meeting in a different space–comfortable and secure–can bring you a sense of peace and increase your focus, as you allow yourself the freedom to separate from your typical environment.
It can also provide a sense of commitment to the therapeutic process and help individuals feel more connected to their therapist.
In-Person Therapy Can Help You Take Control of Your Mental Health
If you're ready to take control of your mental health and improve your well-being, in-person therapy can be a powerful tool.
