Online therapy in Helsinki

Online therapy in Helsinki is becoming more common as the world becomes more connected.

Online therapists help those who may feel anxious about meeting face to face in a therapist’s room, those who can’t afford offline therapy or those that simply prefer the convenience and anonymity of online counselling and psychotherapy.

The world of online counselling is vast, but many people are still unconvinced about the validity of online therapy, with some feeling that it is not real therapy.

However, there are plenty of therapists who can provide solid support and guidance through your issues via Skype or other messaging apps.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Mental Health in Helsinki

Mental health conditions are a varied and complicated thing, and it’s hard to talk about them as a whole. There is some data on the prevalence of specific mental health conditions such as depression and schizophrenia in Helsinki, but these numbers can’t represent the entirety of what it means to be mentally ill for everyone.

Some cases are situational, while others are chronic. People experience very different things when they are suffering from their own personal experiences, which is why talking about them in broad brush strokes doesn’t work.

There are approximately 66 private rehabilitation clinics in Helsinki. These are only a part of the total number of mental health institutes, which is over 100 altogether. Between them, they have about 1,500 rehabilitation places for people with different conditions and needs. There’s one hospital that specializes in giving care to adolescents and children who need psychiatric assistance. In addition to this, there are no less than 15 emergency hospital units in Helsinki where patients can get assistance when needed.


Best Therapists in Helsinki

Eveliina Salonen

She is a therapist with over 10 years of experience working in the field of psychology. She has been trained in many different methods, including psychodynamic therapies, cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, and others. She is an excellent candidate for people who don’t want any particular model or therapeutic orientation used on them but instead prefers a more individualized approach for their own needs. Also having seen her work first hand I believe Eveliina to be extremely personable and easy to understand making even long sessions feel reasonably short. And lastly, she has a very flexible schedule which makes it easy to always find a time that works for you and your therapist.

Henna Virkkunen

She is also a really excellent candidate for people looking for a good fit in terms of personality and who prefer an individualized approach, as she has been trained in many different methods including psychodynamic therapies, psychoanalysis, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Furthermore, Henna has acquired her practice through years of experience working with people from various walks of life and dealing with different problems such as anxiety, depression, etc. This means she will definitely understand the words coming out of your mouth even if you don’t quite understand them yourself yet.

Leena Törhönen

I was recommended to see Leena by a colleague and I can say with 100% certainty that she is an excellent choice for people looking for a therapist in Helsinki, whether you’re from here or abroad. She has been practicing ever since 1999 and specializes in both psychodynamic therapies and cognitive behavioral therapy, which means she has experience dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, addiction (including alcohol), anger management problems, etc., but also personality disorders like BPD (borderline personality disorder) and narcissistic personalities. This combination allows her to fit the most suitable type of treatment depending on what your specific problem is. Also, she has worked with international clients before so communication should be easy if you’re not speaking Finnish fluently.

Pirkko Puskala

She has extensive experience in the field of psychology, with over 20 years of active practice in child/adolescent therapy, couple therapy, relationship counseling, and stress management coaching with both individuals and couples. This shows her to be flexible when dealing with different types of problems while also being capable of exercising focused care for any given issues she might have at hand.
