Online therapy in Auckland

Online therapy in Auckland has been available for quite some time now and the number of clinics that offer this service is increasing steadily. One of the key benefits of choosing this kind of treatment is that it generally takes much less time than traditional face-to-face sessions. The online sessions also provide you with the opportunity to communicate openly with your therapist, friend, or family member without feeling any embarrassment.

Therapy over the internet has become a popular option for those living abroad as well as those living in New Zealand. Online therapy can help people from all around the world There are many people who prefer to have their sessions via webcam so they can talk to the therapist face-to-face. Some benefit from this method while others find it too impersonal and prefer having a real-life therapist over chatting online. The main advantage of giving your therapist the capability to see you is that it enables them to address any visible issues such as body language, facial expression, or tone of voice.

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

Mental Health in Auckland

In a 2011 survey in Auckland, it was found that more than three-quarters of the population in the city experienced mental health problems. Women were found to have a lower prevalence of emotional distress but men were found to have a higher rate of depression and anxiety. On the other hand, life satisfaction for men and women was higher than the national average. It was also noted that there is very little academic research on mental health conditions in New Zealand.

The study also found that more women experienced emotional distress while unemployed, but had a lower life satisfaction rate. Men had a higher prevalence of reporting mental health conditions when they were employed or studying, and a high satisfaction rate for their working conditions. Women tend to have better scores in the areas of self-rated health and having someone to turn to if needed while men have a higher score on their levels of anxiety and stress.


Men – 1.8% reported good mental health; 23.6% moderate; 50.3% bad; 24.1% very bad (NZ average: women 1.4%; 21%; 57%; 19%)

Women – 2%, 26%, 52%, 22%.NZ average: 1.5%, 21.5%, 54.9%, 23%.

Women – 1.1% reported good mental health; 29.6% moderate; 45.7% bad; 25.6% very bad (NZ average: men 1%; 26%; 50%; 24%)

Men – 6%, 22%, 53%, 16%.NZ average: 6%, 20%; 55%; 18%

The Auckland Mental Health Epidemiology Study hence emphasizes the importance of further research in this area to better understand the factors behind these differences and to determine whether they are due to women developing forms of mental illness earlier than men, or if they seek help more often, or if they experience less stigma when getting help for issues related to their emotional distress or depression.”
