While there are many types of mental health services, as well as mental health alternatives to treatment, counseling and therapy are the most common. In this day and age, Online Counseling and/or Online Therapy can be easy to access alternatives. Some people seek the services of a Counselor or Therapist because they simply have an important decision to make and need an objective and unbiased confidant. Some individuals want answers to questions such as; what is a phobia, is there help for agoraphobia, what are the symptoms of a panic attack, are there ways of managing a panic attack, what are the symptoms of an anxiety disorder, or what are the symptoms of depression?
