Virtual Counselors

So, let's start with the most basic question: what is a 'virtual counselor'?

Is a virtual counselor the same as an online counselor? The answer is no. One of these things is not like the other.

An online counselor is available via a website, while a virtual counselor is not. The difference could be subtle, i.e., an online counselor makes use of Skype or Google Hangouts to connect with the client.

A virtual counselor is more like a real counselor in that they have to make use of human-to-human interactions during the counseling session. There is some similarity here, i.e., there could be voice chats and video chats.

However, the main difference is that a virtual counselor is not bound by geography. An online counselor has to be physically present in order to meet with their client, while a virtual counselor could just as well be somewhere else on this planet.

A virtual counselor is therefore more like a remote counselor. They could be in the next room or they could be on a different continent.

Virtual Counselors are actually a very interesting issue, and I would be happy to attempt an analysis of them.

As far as I understand it, Virtual Counselors are virtual entities that can speak with people via the internet or phone chat lines.

I imagine that people tend to seek out a Virtual Counselor when they have some sort of problem. The Virtual Counselor will speak with the person, and attempt to help them solve their problems.

However, how exactly does this work? Do they have some sort of database with common problems and their solutions?

I think a virtual counselor would be an excellent idea to help people like you deal with stress and everyday problems. It's so easy to forget about the big picture in society, but having a virtual counselor remind you of it every day could make a huge difference!

Virtual counselors provide a way for people or persons contact to discuss their problems and get advice. For example, if someone does not feel like they can talk to anyone else about their problems due to embarrassment or some other reason.

In such a case, they may contact the virtual counselor and talk to them about their problems. The virtual counselor will not judge the person for what they tell them or otherwise influence how the person views their problems.

I would say that virtual counselors are for people who don't have very good social abilities, perhaps due to a mental disorder or some other reason. I imagine that it is better than not having anyone to talk to about one's problems.

However, I think that virtual counselors could also be used by the mentally healthy. Such people may use a virtual counselor to help them with their social skills or for other reasons.

Since social skills are important, I would say that people should try to learn them. That way they can avoid having to use virtual counselors for such things.


I think that many people will soon start to prefer virtual counselors over real ones. This is because the virtual therapist can be programmed with exactly the skills and traits required by a patient, rather than having to deal with an actual person who may not have those skills or traits as well.

The person who implements the virtual counselor can also be sure that nobody will find out about his or her patient, as this is one of the main problems with real life counselors. People often find it embarrassing to talk about their personal issues and end up not following through on treatment.

Another problem with real life counselors is that they are often not available when you need them, whereas a virtual counselor will be on-call 24/7. This does of course mean that the patient may have to wait for an answer at times, but it means he or she can consult the counselor whenever needed.

I also think that people who do not have the money for real life therapy can get therapy from virtual therapists easier and more affordably. This way, they may be able to work through their problems and become happier.
