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.
