Having Some Thoughts After Reading About 'Text' Therapy
January 18, 2016 6:29pm CST
Well I was reading a post by @Drosophila about Paying for Therapy on Line and came to a thought. First some background for this this discussion. In the aforementioned post, I was reminded of some therapeutic benefits and dangers involved in the non face to face interactions. I truly encourage people to check out the post although I want to bounce an idea off people here for a different formulation of this concept. I'm a recovering compulsive gambler (recovering addict). I've been working to create services for others in this area because it is so hard to admit the problem. Having written books, created a website and other forms of help I came up with an idea. Since much of the best help for recovery comes from groups with 'Anonymous' in their name, would it be beneficial to create a service based on the principals of those groups that works like this service? Since the 'Anonymous' groups are not based on formal professional help, It could have 'Para Professional' services. Do you think that a service like this with a small fee would be workable? Should I work on a parallel form of the service for addiction? Here is the link to the service mentioned for counseling:
